The Guild is excited to offer a Wildlife Photography class led by master photographers Gordon Allen and Dan Williams. This class will take place on Saturday, April 27th, from 9am – 5pm. Lunch will be provided. Cost is $125 per person and class size is limited. Please plan to meet at the Guild building at 9 am on Saturday, and be sure to bring your camera! Possible photography locations include Shackleford Banks, Cape Lookout Lighthouse, and more! We’ll spend some time in the classroom on camera settings; gear and techniques for wildlife photography, but the majority of the day will be “in the field” with some hands-on and dialing your cameras in. Come dressed for the weather conditions and camera batteries charged. Please note that participants are responsible for ferry fees, etc. If you are interested in this class, please sign up by contacting Amie Talton at firstname.lastname@example.org.

More about Gordon Allen:
Shortly after retirement Gordon was commissioned by the City of Eden to photograph wildlife and scenes found on the Dan and Smith Rivers and embarked on a year-long project which resulted in a permanent display in Eden City Hall of Otters, Minks, Eagles, etc. This project helped launch their “Small Town – Big Outdoors” Campaign and while doing this project, he realized just how much he enjoyed using his time capturing and sharing the wildlife found in our own backyards and soon found himself on a Photo Safari across North Carolina. He enjoys sharing what he has seen through the camera lens and many of his photos are found in publications, public facilities, private homes and on trail markers identifying wildlife found on those trails.
