Workshops are limited to give each participant personalized and focused attention.  Learn how to get stunning images of birds in all their glory in deep South Texas.  Alan Murphy, an internationally published photographer, renowned for exceptional photographs of birds on perches which add to the artistry of the image, will be drawing from over 25 years of experience and knowledge to offer:


  • How to locate certain species
  • How to get birds to land where you want
  • How to search for and select the appropriate perch
  • How to set up staging and landing perch for small birds in flight
  • How to choose best camera settings to freeze action
  • All the tips and tricks that bring stunning images together


Alan has been photographing at this location for the past 15 years. He knows how to get some of the most difficult-to-photograph species (specialty birds of the Rio-Grande valley) down onto his set-upsand how to capture them in flight.

The workshop is help on a private ranch designed for bird photography. We have two morning songbird blinds and two afternoon songbird blinds. We also have three multi level raptor blinds.

This workshop will be designed to target each species and work the situation to get the ultimate image of that bird. There are many different ways to control the situation for each species and you will take away the knowledge of these techniques to use wherever you shoot around the country.
