Texas Hill Country (+ Artificial Lighting)

May 13, 2021 - May 16, 2021


TEXAS Hill Country (+ Artificial lighting)

Want to photograph birds, wildflowers and landscapes in the heart of the Texas Hill Country? Need help with your digital workflow (including Lightroom?).

Join me at  Block Creek Natural Area, (BCNA) south of Fredericksburg for a long weekend of nature photography and digital tutoring. I just had my last two spaces open up, so contact me quickly if you are interested. Size is limited to 5-6 people and we often have less..

BCNA has first class bird blinds, beautiful hills and creeks, rustic old barns and windmills, and is in one of the prettiest areas in all of the Hill Country with close access to Hill Country rivers and bridges. Participants can photograph either wildlife or landscapes early and late.


Using Adobe Lightroom, we will cover the full photographer’s workflow, with time for individual tutoring and assistance as well.

Thursday. Arrive by 3pm. Settle in. Photograph nearby at sunset and return for dinner.

Friday-Saturday. Photograph early and late. Mid day- people can relax or work on their images or join me photographing wildflowers, hummingbirds and others subjects in nearby gardens and landscape using flash, reflectors, diffusers, and LED lights. I will bring lots of extras for people to play with and I will give in the field instructions to those who want to learn how to add artificial and modified light to their photographic skillset.

Sunday.  Wrap up loose ends, final questions, and hit the road!


All inclusive cost is $1975. $493.75/day/person (includes the workshop and my instructional services, lodging, meals, ranch and photo blind).

For spouses, partners and companions not taking the workshop, BCNA is conveniently located near the charming towns of Fredericksburg and Comfort, as well as historic Luckenbach and lots of wineries and shopping destinations.  Inquire about additional food or lodging and I can check with BCNA.

Feel free to call or email me for more info or to register.  My cell is 214.213.4193.


BCNA  Bird Blinds

The bird blinds at BCNA are excellent. They maintain them well, with fresh bird feed and water. The blinds offer lots of opportunities to shoot birds in native Hill Country habitat, rather than just on an isolated perch. I really like that!

Check out my little timelapse video of a shoot from BCNA over two afternoons in June of 2017. I took about 1500 images as the light shifted in and out, and it even rained.
