Bird Photography Wooleen Station August 2022.
Where to start...so many beautiful birds, the homestead, lovely weather, the hosts, the meals, the wines and of course the company! Shelley you were amazing! You have fulfilled a lifelong dream to be at one in nature and capture some of its beauty in a photograph.
It didn't matter that I came to this workshop with no skills or experience in bird photography. I was welcomed, nurtured, gently prodded and guided with such patience and enthusiasm. You believed in me and I came away with so much learning and a new passion as well as some lifelong friends ( I hope).
The 4 days were jam packed with new experiences. I discovered how to sit quietly and observe, to move slowly with respect and just breathe it all in. I think I leant the most from watching you. I love the sense of empathy and reciprocity that you brought to every encounter with a bird and how the birds in turn connected with you.
No wonder your photos are so beautiful and show such deep connection. Thank you for giving your time and knowledge so freely and for going that extra mile to make sure we all got everything we we could out of the workshop.
You are a fantastic educator. Your passion for what you do and sharing your knowledge really shines through. It turns out I LOVE bird photography and I will be back for more. by Robyn
