photographer for photographers. The National Wildlife Federation has designated
the area as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat. Areas have been developed to attract

birds to visit our photographic areas plus various butterflies, moths, skippers,
chipmunks, squirrels, and reptiles.

to having you join them for a photo weekend.
Robert Smith is a wildlife biologist who has been carrying a camera in the woods regularly since 1987. Robert has had images published in a number of books and magazines. Robert enjoys helping other photographers learn more about the subjects we photograph.
Cost of the photo weekend does not include motel, travel, and meals. We provide
