Birds and Bird Photography Workshop

October 14, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Bring your camera and your lenses! John Pennoyer is leading another photography workshop here at Crex Meadows. More information about John:

“Growing up in Kalispell, Montana it was natural for me to be in the outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, or just hiking in Glacier National Park. I moved to Minnesota to go to school and my intention was to move back to Montana, but here I am still in Minnesota. After school I took up bowhunting and to further my time in the Northwoods of Minnesota, I also dived into photography. Little did I know how photography would begin to open my eyes to so many things besides Whitetail deer. I love to photograph the flora and fauna of Minnesota, but I also enjoy traveling and photographing around other parts of the country. My camera and lenses have always been Nikon but they are just the tools to get the image, it is the photographer’s vision to create the image. I have been a member of NPS (Nikon Professional Services) for many years!”

***John’s images have been seen in Bowhunter Magazine, Peterson Bowhunting, Game and Fish Magazine, plus others!

Friends of Crex member, volunteer, and fellow photographer Mike Prokosch will also assist with the workshop.

This workshop will be focused on “Birds and Bird Photography.” The workshop aligns with Sandhill crane migration and will focus primarily on photographing these birds in the field.

From 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., John will lead a classroom session. Please bring your camera/lenses/equipment with you into the classroom! After the classroom session, we will caravan out into Crex Meadows Wildlife Area or Fish Lake Wildlife Area to photograph birds until around 7:00 p.m. The exact field location will be determined closer to the day of the event.

We recommend bringing: your personal camera/lenses/& equipment, appropriate clothing for the weather, and snacks/sack lunch (light snacks and refreshments will be provided).

Skill level: All skill levels are welcome; however, your camera should have adjustable exposure levels and not be strictly a point and shoot camera.
