Your Instructor: William Miller
In the spring of 2006 I decided to seriously take up digital photography after taking classes with Point Reyes landscape photographer, Marty Knapp. I photographed architecture, flowers, landscapes, people and cars, but found my passion was photographing birds. Since, I have traveled extensively in California photographing birds, many in location close to Sacramento. I have gotten to know my equipment, bird photo locations and the birds themselves. I have taken classes from Art Morris and others on post production, and studied extensively online to increase my awareness and understanding of the craft. I have conducted bird photography tours in the Central Valley and along the Central coast. I have had my photos published by the San Francisco Estuary Institute [SFEI} and have self-published children’s books on birds, including Bapa Looking; The ABC’s of Birds; and A Day on Staten Island.
While I am largely self-taught, I have learned much to share with beginners and advanced photographers alike that will help you become a better bird photographer.
