Let's turn those snapshots into wall hangers! This beginner photography workshop is part of the continuing educational series being offered by The Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium on Saturday, June 9, 2012 from 8am-11am.

Well known photographer and birder Thomas Dunkerton, will talk about the basics in exposure and composition whether it's a point and shoot or a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera. During the workshop he'll discuss ISO settings, aperture, composition and choosing your subjects. In addition some creative tips Dunkerton uses in the field will be explored as you head out on The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail in search of the perfect shot.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Thomas spent most of his childhood outdoors and early on became fascinated with birding as a hobby. In 1995 he moved to Florida and began volunteering with Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge participating in shorebird surveys which inspired him to take up photography. Receiving his first published image in 2005, his photography, along with his birding, quickly turned into deep passions.

In 2007 Nikon recognized Dunkerton's talents and invited him to join their Nikon Birding Prostaff Team where he leads a variety of field trips for birding as well as photography throughout Florida and on the east coast of the U.S.

The Great Florida Birding Trail

Currently he has even influenced his 7 year old son to pick up a camera and they now co-write a blog for the Great Florida Birding Trail entitled "Big Dunk, Little Dunk" as well as being a contributing photographer for the Trail.

This Beginner Photography Workshop is part of the Continuing Educational Series being offered by The Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium.
