Teaching In Action
Your Professional Wildlife Photographer Instructor
"Photographing wildlife is one of the most rewarding areas of photography. It touches our emotions, is dynamic and fast moving, and when we feel the connection, it changes peoples' lives! As your professional wildlife instructor, I promise to bring you opportunities for being near and connected to a variety of wildlife, to maximize the number of wildlife photo opportunities in the limited time we're together, to prepare you in advance so you know what to expect, and to be your co-pilot and a friend as you capture the essence of those special moments with your camera". - Kathleen Reeder
Join Kathleen to capture incredible wildlife photos in the United States (Arizona, Montana, California and Colorado), South Africa and Botswana.
