Have you ever wondered how wildlife photographers get pictures of voles, moles, and shrews that live the majority of their lives in a subterranean state? What technique is deployed to get that picture of a swooping great horned owl? How do people in this trade get images of animals that are rarely ever seen in the wild – like the marbled salamanders and cerulean warblers? All will be revealed during this one-hour presentation.

The use of photography blinds, infrared slaves, setup tanks and specialty field equipment will be explored. The presenter will share the proper use of baits and calling devices used by people in the trade that allow us to get those full frame shots. Designed to be strictly entertaining this program is all about the fun of the chase.

This program is indeed a confessional intended to make you say “No kidding – so that’s how they do it”.
