Hands-on Nature Photography Outing

Come photograph the rare Illinois prairie with internationally published prairie photographer Mike MacDonald. Mike will take you to a very photogenic location that should provide vibrant and luscious demonstrations of prairie flowers and grasses.  (Gift Cards for this outing are available.)

As with all of our Learning Adventures, Mike will give you guidance and help you set up your shots. As long as you stay with the group, he’ll help you with exposure, composition, or whatever you need.

During this photography outing, we will begin in the late afternoon to catch the final light of day. Hopefully, we’ll get some warm afternoon sunlight followed by a colorful sunset. Fingers crossed! But, the flowers are still wonderful even if the light doesn’t want to cooperate.

NOTE: These outings are planned several months in advance based on the best available knowledge and history, but there is no way to tell what the conditions will actually be like. Therefore, we’ll be going no matter what, and we’ll make the most of it!

Since our outings are about taking pictures, you need to be somewhat comfortable with your camera and how it works so that you can better enjoy the experience. Please read the Class Requirements for this course and feel free to email us or give us a call at 630-852-8448 if you have any questions.

The photo shoot will be held at a location, which will be announced after you’ve been accepted into the course. We will shoot for approximately four hours, depending on the feeling of the group.

Learning Adventure Agenda

This photography class will be limited to approximately 6 students per instructor depending on the experience level of the participants. So, please register quickly to ensure a spot.
