A professional photographer and staff animal keeper join forces to create two days of exciting picture taking opportunities. This workshop is for photography enthusiasts of all skill levels no matter what kind of camera you have. Lots of opportunities to learn, take pictures, ask questions and experience the Desert Museum from the inside out. You may walk up to a mile or more each day. Join us for a unique experience that has students returning again and again. 

Day 1: Instructor Jay Pierstorff will show you techniques for photographing hummingbirds, raptors, and other animals in zoos and museums as well as in the wild.  Then take your camera out on the Desert Museum grounds to practice what you have learned.

Day 2: Shawnee Riplog-Peterson, ASDM Curator of Mammalogy and Ornithology joins the workshop. Get your cameras ready for a morning of non-stop action with animals that are alert and active. You'll also visit many "behind the scenes" areas of the Desert Museum that are not open to the general public.

Bring your camera, extra memory cards, charged batteries, desert walking shoes, wide brimmed hat, sunscreen and water. Take some great pictures, make some new friends, and have a lot of fun!
