Nickerson Beach 2nd Workshop in July Announced!

Image © 2014/Denise Ippolito Photography

Since my first workshop sold out I decided to offer a second workshop immediately following the first one. If you have signed up for the first one and would like to extend your workshop to include the second one than I can offer you a $200.00 discount off of the second workshop. There are only 2 spots left so you will need to contact me as soon as possible.

Nickerson Beach Workshop ~ Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday; July 20,21,22, 2015, $899.00 includes 5 photo sessions and 2 Image Review/ Photoshop sessions.

Join Denise Ippolito at Nickerson Beach, Long Island NY. In July the Common Terns should be in full swing with plenty of chicks and feeding opportunities. If you have never seen their aggressive behavior at feeding time you must! Watching tiny little chicks running around looking for “mamma” is priceless and also allows for some excellent photo opps as often times these siblings will squabble over food. In July we can expect to see American Oystercatcher, Black Skimmer, Piping Plover and maybe even some Least Tern. I will do my very best to get the group in the very best location I can to capture great images. I will share with you my flight techniques and my techniques on getting you close to your subject. I will help you to recognize good situations and become a better bird photographer. Rain or shine. Limit 8/FULL

3:00pm Meet & Greet at hotel/ Slide show program with orientation

Afternoon Break

We will meet in the lobby of the hotel on Friday afternoon for an orientation, slide program and gear review session. Then we will head to Nickerson Beach for our first photo session. We photograph in the morning on Saturday, then break for an early lunch (included in the price). During lunch we will do image review and Photoshop lessons. Then we will take an afternoon rest. This will give you time to download your images and have some time to yourself before we head back out in the late afternoon/early evening. Sunday we will wake up and have basically the same schedule as Saturday. This schedule is subject to change depending on conditions and wildlife 🙂 .
Gear Suggestions:
I recommend that you bring your longest lens. If that is a 70-200mm lens than you will need a teleconvertor. You should have at the very least 400mm of focal length. A sturdy tripod- preferably w/o a center column. A complete list of gear recommendations as well as hotel recommendations and general information sheet will be provided at sign up.
