The beauty of birds comes in many forms: colourful birds like Anna’s Hummingbirds with glimmering gorgets flying between flowers; small and camouflaged birds like Brown Creepers, that nimbly climb up the bark of trees; the sight of thousands of birds taking flight, or the sight of a solitary bird in a wide-open landscape. Many people capture the beauty of birds through photography, and sharing inspiring and intimate moments with these winged creatures is powerful! If you’ve always wanted to try bird photography, but don’t know where to start, join Kris Cu (Birds Canada), a nature lover and photographer, for a beginner-friendly webinar on bird photography! Learn about the exposure triangle and how to use manual mode confidently. We will also cover wildlife photography ethics, camera gear recommendations and more. Just in time to get your camera ready to make the most of Vancouver Bird Celebration 2022 that’s happening for the rest of the month!
Kris Cu is a biological sciences graduate from SFU and is passionate about biodiversity conservation, sustainability and science communication. He currently works for Birds Canada as the Conservation Engagement and Outreach Worker. In his spare time, Kris leads bird walks and enjoys photographing the incredible wildlife around Vancouver. You can see Kris’ incredible photography on his Instagram (@kris.cu).
