Nature photographer Robert O'Toole

Last weekend Robert O'Toole gave a fantastic workshop on wildlife and nature photography.  It was held at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford, MA, and was sponsored by Nashoba Valley Photo Club (of which I am a member), Hunt's Photo and Sigma lenses. 

There were 90 attendees from clubs from several New England states.  All of us were rewarded with some beautiful images and some great tips and techniques.

Robert showed a series of his wildlife and nature images, most noteably eagles and grizzly bears in Alaska and shared tips and techniques used to capture the images.  He concluded the three hour workshop by showing a few post production techniques he's developed over the years with Photoshop, all of which are available for purchase on a CD.

I like to bookmark other photographer's Web sites.  And I most certainly recommend bookmarking http://www.robertotoolephotography.com/ !  If you get a chance, at least go into his web portfolios and browse through his Alaska photos.  On his Web site you will find information on his field workshops to Alaska and other destinations.  He also offers workshops in post production image optimization.

Robert has some fine credentials.  In 2008 he was named BC.Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the American Bald Eage Foundation Photographer of the Year.  After seeing his images I was certainly not surprised at these achievements.
