Erik Verdouw and the Cascades Raptor Center
This week I again had the privilege of working with Erik Verdouw as he did physical therapy with two of the rehab birds from the CRC. He worked with a hawk and a falcon.
Erik comes into the studio with a presence that is beyond words. Watching him work with a wild animal is unique. The birds become so calm in his hands, you know that what he is doing is healing and must feel good to the animals.
Today we ran through the proofs and we both decided that this was our favorite photo from the session. This photos still needs to go through the final stages of finishing. But it looks pretty good straight out of the gate.
