It is with great pleasure to announce that Capital Photography Center and myself have joined forces to offer a series of bird and nature photography workshops in the Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and DC areas. (DELMARVA)

Indeed, this is a true honor that Founder and owner Marie Joabar considered me worthy enough to be included in her exceptional team of instructors.

This is a journey that I was hoping for when picking up my first DSLR five years ago. This blog, with all of you wonderful readers has made me the photographer that I am today. With your comments, likes and feedback I learned what people enjoy and it encouraged me to really develop my craft of bird photography. Truly, I am grateful to each and everyone of you for your follows and friendship throughout the years.

The Feathered Friends Meetup group that I’ve had for the past two years has helped lead me to this incredible opportunity. While the meetup will continue, more hands-on coaching workshops will be offered through Capital Photography Center.

These in-field workshops will combine the search for our feathered friends, while improving photographic skills to capture them. A page will soon be added to Hoofbeats and Footprints with workshops offered.

In the meantime, I would truly appreciate it if you can take the time to come vote for my Tundra Swans “Let’s Talk About It.” It’s the first time I’ve ever entered a contest and it would mean so much to me if it was included in the Tri-State Bird Rescue 2016 calendar. (U.S. Only)


And Mr. Downy thanks you for your support and readership.

    • I think I’m lucky to be included. Such amazing pros on her coaching team. I’m a little nobody, totally outgunned. Now to keep honing my craft to really seem like I know what I’m doing. πŸ™‚

  1. Thoroughly deserved Em….you’re bird and nature shots are always so professional and inspirational, I’m really not surprised that they’ve snapped you up.

  2. Congratulations, Emily. Since I live in Northern Virginia, there’s a chance that I will be able to sign up for one of your workshops. It’s hard to believe that the calendar is your first contest–your photos are awesome.

    • Thank you so much Kerry. How are you? Busy traveling to exciting places this year? I really owe your blog a visit to see what you’ve been up to.

      I’m still planning on Shenandoah in October. Considering coming out to the eastern side? πŸ™‚
