Nathan is a real professional, he has the technical expertise to give the photographer the best opportunity to make that unique Loon shot, while at the same time respecting the wildlife and its environment. I've done a number of trips with him over the years and look forward to many more.

More workshop info

There is a small window of time every year when loon chicks can be found riding on their parents backs while they are being fed.  This unique workshop is designed to make the most of this special time of year.

On a "first to sign up first to choose" basis, we will schedule the date of your choice for a private day or days of loon photography.  We will arrive at our location early and get on the water for sunrise.  This location is home to multiple nesting pairs of loons, giving us a variety of options and the chance to photograph throughout the day.

In addition to loons, there are also red-necked grebes with chicks, white pelicans, nesting colonies of terns, yellow-headed blackbirds and more.  We will stay on the water until sunset to photograph in the best possible light.  

This workshop is a private guided shoot with one to one instruction.  Our custom boat is designed to give you ultimate access to the birds, maximum maneuverability and the best shooting angles.  It is a truly intimate experience that will provide you the best opportunity to come away with great images.
