New Meetup: Bolsa Chica Birds and Animals Shoot

From: Rick R.

Announcing a new Meetup for Huntington Beach Photography Meetup Group!

What: Bolsa Chica Birds and Animals Shoot

When: Sunday, April 18,[masked]:00 PM

Carl Palazzolo's home
1649 Lazare Lane
Huntington Beach, CA 92649

We are very fortunate to have Carl Palazzolo teach photography to our group at the Bolsa Chico Wetlands Wildlife Preserve. I just attended one of these events and it was great.

These Meetups with Carl fill up very quickly. He keeps the attendance low to allow every photographer access to his long lenses and cameras. PLEASE do not RSVP and then be a no-show! That keeps others from participating.

We'll meet at his place and carpool the rest of the way. Please meet at his house so we can carpool (parking can be a problem at Bolsa Chica) and so we all go at the same time.

His condo address is:

16449 Lazare Lane
Huntington Beach, CA 92649

Map Quest-

I let him explain the rest:

I am a veterinarian that owns the Long Beach Animal Hospital. As a part of the services offered I take my clients on photo workshops around the world to have fun, see tons of great wildlife, and increase their photo skills. I bring professional cameras and lenses for all to use, and we have a ball to say the least.

To learn more about me I have a few links:

Here is the link to a web page on the web site for my animal hospital that tells you much more-

Here is a link to a detailed set of articles I wrote for a friends web site (he is a professional photographer in Thailand- maybe we should set up a trip there?) on the 5 African safaris I have been on since 1986.
Part I -
Part II-

I enjoy sharing my knowledge and equipment locally by taking many photo meetup groups out shooting at Bolsa Chica- Here are some links to prior meetups I have lead at Bolsa Chica-

I will be bringing Canon 1D and 1Ds Mark III cameras. We will use my Canon 300 mm f/2.8 IS and my Canon 500 mm f/4 IS, along with a few other lenses and my monopods and tripods to shoot the beautiful birds in the afternoon sun. Afterwards we go back to my place 10 minutes away and have beer and pizza and I give a slide show on my latest Tanzania trip. Its a great time for all.

Please bring $5 for the food and drinks.

This Bolsa Chica meetup is for beginning and intermediate photographers that want to learn wildlife photography and get exposed to professional cameras and equipment from Canon. Get ready for a challenge because those terns move fast! Please remember to bring a jacket and compact flash or SD cards.
