Explore the exciting and challenging art of wildlife photography! The varied environments of Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod offer a wealth of photographic opportunities–birds, dragonflies, butterflies, turtles, frogs, and more will be our subjects. During this course, you will visit a number of different habitats around the sanctuary, while learning about your digital SLR camera and photo techniques. Sufficient time will be spent each day during the outdoors field session and will include discussion and hands-on learning through the use of your camera.

Early morning photographic sessions will be complemented by indoor class time that will cover a wide variety of topics in both photography techniques and the digital camera including camera function, use of natural light, depth of field, shutter speeds, white balance, composition and the use software-based photo editing.

Use of the instructors’ professional cameras and accessories will be encouraged; however, participants need to supply their own Canon or Nikon digital SLR camera (no point-and-shoots) and have a strong working knowledge of their equipment. This course is appropriate for intermediate to advanced photographers.

Course includes dinner on the first evening. Sorry, sanctuary housing is not available; ask us for a list of local accommodations.
