We have two amazing locations on private property with a lot of species that are constantly active in front of the blinds. Land owner Dano Grayson is a photographer himself and knows what bird photographers want to see in the viewfinder. He has setup the most amazing blinds with the right combination of habitat, water and food and backgrounds.  One afternoon session we will photograph a variety of snake species and Gila Monster. In addition, we have an optional evening activity photpgraphing bats at the pond.  All flash and trigger equipment will be supplied.
