Steve P, William P, and Jasmine V. BH Photo has a great hotline. I always call when I need help, or just have a fun joke to share with them.
Maribeth K, I’d love to see those Raptor photos, are you also giving a presentation? I bet your shots are as sharp as those raptors talons 😮.
i need help
Would love to join. BUT HOW? Just did a photo shoot at the Audubon center for 'raptors'.
Maribeth K., since we had several workshops at different times, each one has its own "Click here to join" button, rather than one link for all. You can chery-pick the ones you wish to attend, individually.
I agree with Steve P. Why are we just hearing about this on May 10th? And how can you have a week of wildlife photography without touching on the experience and work done by the most significant equipment and wildlife photographers - Canon shooters???
We apologize for any inconvenience, william p., Since we had several workshops at different times, each one has its own "Click here to join" button, rather than one link for all. Regarding the second part of your question, we wanted to focus more on the work of these photographers than the gear they use—and we do feature many articles on Canon equipment.
I regularly receive B&H emails but today is the very 1st notice about Wildlife Week which starts tomorrow! I have viewed OPTIC remotely for several years with plenty of notice and easy sign-ons. There is no obvious sign-on for tomorrow. What gives???
