Join Sigma Pro photographer David FitzSimmons and naturalist-photographer Jim McCormac for a three-day photo workshop along the beautiful south shore of Lake Erie, exploring everything from landscapes and macro to wildflowers and wildlife.

From September 21-23, participants will explore Lake Erie shorelines, including the Marblehead Lighthouse and area state and metro parks. The workshop features both classroom seminars and hands-on field sessions that will explore local flora and fauna. Participants will deepen their knowledge and:  

  • Learn professional landscape and panorama photography techniques
  • Improve macro skills
  • Practice wildlife focus and tracking
  • Understand exposure through metering and reading histograms
  • Learn new apps for focus stacking, HDR and location-finding 

There will also be more than $500 in door prizes.

Curious Critters Ohio is one of 16 state-focused board books helping introduce young readers to animals in their own backyards.

McCormac is retired from the Ohio Division of Wildlife. He specializes in birds, education and wildlife diversity. He is the author of several books, including Birds of Ohio, Wild Ohio: The Best of Our Natural Heritage and The Great Lakes Nature Guide.
