Upcoming Speaking Events

March 25: Michigan Bluebird Festival, A Love for Birds, Light and Composition

Location: Prince Conference Center, Calvin University
Date/Time: Saturday, March 25th, 9am-4:45pm (my talk is at 3:45pm
Cost/Registration: FREE, no registration required
Topic: This program will feature my finest images as I share how bird knowledge is vital to creating more pleasing and artistic photographs.  I will also share some of my favorite stories in the field including unique experiences with birds out in nature.  Additionally, I will share simple non-technical tips on bringing birds closer, how to get birds, including Bluebirds, away from non-natural elements like feeders/boxes without disturbing their natural processes and ways to create artistry in images creating better photographs.  My hope is to inspire people through imagery and stories to get outside and enjoy birds to the greatest extent possible. Please join me!
