Bosque del Apache, one of the prime sites to photograph migratory birds, is located in southern New Mexico about 90 miles south of Albuquerque.

The preserve has over 50,000 snow geese, 40,000 ducks, 8000 sandhill cranes plus several other species. Sunrises and sunsets create a dazzling light show and you’ll enjoy photographing both birds and landscape. The riotous explosion of snow geese at sunrise is a sight to behold (and hear). We’ll be there in peak time too. So, it’s time to get out the big glass. We’ll shoot “early and late” with classroom sessions and critiques in-between.

Following a couple of day’s worth of shooting at Bosque, we’ll make our way to White Sand National Monument. At this time of year, with tourist season well behind us, we’ll shoot the world’s largest gypsum doonfield – 275 square miles of desert. Early and late, we’ll capture amazing texture and color of these mighty dunes.
