Cascades Raptor Center Portrait Session

I've photographed many creatures.... Dogs, Cats, children of all sorts but never birds in my studio.  In January we produced a photo shoot for the Cascades Raptor Center, a local raptor rehab and education center here in Eugene, Oregon.  After a few discussions about the Raptor Center needed for images we came up with a plan.  Shoot portraits in the morning and then portraits plus action imagery in the afternoon with the birds that are used for education.   After a test shoot in December I worked out the lighting and photography details.  Over the course of the day we had about a dozen birds in the studio.  I had a crew of 4 helping me, including Vernon Williams and my good friend Micheal Ferry. Mike came down from Portland to shoot a making of video and interviews of the CRC staff. Here is a video slideshow of some of the work we did that day.  This project is still a work in progress so stay tuned for more.  And our next shoot is already in the works for this spring.... More flying...
