Photographer and naturalist Jerry Goffe will provide an overview on wildlife and nature photography followed by a hands-on experience at the Bosque del Apache NWR located near San Antonio, NM, Jan. 26.
Photography has been Jerry's professional career and personal passion for over 35 years. His evolution into this career began as an architectural photographer, later moving into commercial and illustrative photography. His photographs have appeared in Sunset Magazine, Architectural Forum, AIA Journal, Mountain Mail, Smithsonian Magazine, El Defensor Chieftain, Strad Magazine, and National Geographic, among others.
Since the mid 1980's, Jerry has become nationally respected as a leader and expert in the technically demanding specialization of forensic photography and legal evidence documentation. Jerry now directs his passion for nature and wildlife through photography. He is a volunteer, guide, photography instructor and contributor to the Friend's newsletter at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge and many national publications. As a Canon contract professional and a Canon Professional Services member, Jerry hones his skills using the latest camera equipment available. He creates artistic images that reveal a wide variety of birds, animals and scenic grandeur under the clear New Mexico skies, as well as throughout North and South America.
Techniques and tips will be utilized while photographing the Sandhill Cranes, Geese, landscape and other animals of the refuge. Canon will be supplying some photo gear for people to use. We'll also have a Canon 13 X 19 inch color printer so everyone can take home a print or two of their images created during the workshop. Bring your camera, instruction manual, media (memory) cards or film (what's film?), tripod, lunch, water and proper clothing (layers). Meet at unit 3 (Crane pond) at 6:15am for Fly-out and early morning photo opportunities prior to class. Please call 575-835-1828 for reservations. Limit 20 participants, reservations required.
