Eagle Action - Close Ups

Every year I enter notes in my calendar of goals for next year’s photo shoots. This year for my eagle photography, I wanted up close, in your face action detailing the aggression of these incredible raptors.

In November I hosted 3 weeks of photo workshops in Haines, Alaska for the Bald Eagles. I have been going to this location every year since 2009 and wanted to add a different look and feel to my eagle portfolio as I’ve photographed there so much over the years. I love the scenics with eagles but wanted to experiment with a different look and feel.

This year, I’ve been shooting Nikon SLRs and Sony mirrorless. It’s been a lot of fun going back and forth and figuring out the strengths and weaknesses of each. For this genre, I took the Sony A1 for its fast frame rate, and high mega-pixel sensor to enable me to crop in a bit and get the feel I was looking for.

Thanks for viewing, and CC always welcome.
