Aspiring wildlife photographers who want a chance to shoot alongside this talented photographer can choose between either of two workshops Landau will coach during his exhibition. “Anyone who owns a camera can shoot better hummingbird photos,” adds Landau, “at least anyone with patience who’s willing to learn a little about the birds’ behavior - and about their own camera’s functions for zoom and macro photography. And a tripod helps, of course!”
On Saturday, June 16, and again Tuesday, July 3, from 5-7 p.m., Landau will coach two special workshops at the Arboretum specifically dedicated to the art and science of hummingbird photography -- teaching 10 enrollees about technique.
Each workshop is limited to ten photographers; Landau is donating his time and the $39 fee enrollees pay ($30 for BTA members) benefits the Arboretum. Have a credit card ready and call (520)689-2723 to prepay and reserve a spot in the class.
All images in the exhibit are available for purchase, prices range from $175 to $475, and Landau donates a a percentage of sales to the Arboretum.
Landau will also print his images up to three or four feet wide or tall; landscapes can be even larger. See more of Landau’s work athttp://www.landauimaging.com.
