Front Range Photography Meetup is sponsoring a special photo shoot with Hawk Quest. We will have a total of 6-Birds of Prey in a natural setting to photograph. The birds will include a Bald Eagle, Falcon, Owls and a few surprise birds.
We are limiting this session to 20 participates in order to give everyone the opportunity to capture the best photos. (A well-known photo store offers this shoot to 50 people or more!)
Kin Quitugua, is a master falconer and long time environmental educator. Kin knows how to handle the birds and will instruct us as to what his is doing, how the bird will fly in order for us to be able to capture that "money-shot."
We will create small groups to photograph the various birds in separate areas of the park. After a period of time, the group will move on to another location, rotating throughout the morning.
The final setup will be shooting a bird in flight. All of us will gather at the location, the bird will fly in front of us. Typically this is done multiple times to allow us a few practice shots!

After the Event - Brunch
Immediately following our shot, let's meet at the Blue Cow Restaurant in Morrison for brunch. It will be fun to hangout and chat about the morning and perhaps show our images!
Since we are keeping this group small, we need 20 people to fund the event. There will be no refunds unless there is someone on the waiting list willing to take your spot. Typically this event fills up fast, so don't delay.
