“Getting Down” with Calgary Area Birds
A tour of Calgary area birds as seen through the lens of amateur nature photographer Tony LePrieur. Tony will share bird pictures captured over the past couple of years, providing IDs, locations and tips/stories around individual pictures.
Tony was introduced to photography by a friend while watching puffins in Newfoundland. He has been capturing wildlife memories in the Calgary area for the past 5 years. A self-described “Complete Amateur” especially on the technical side, he has been doing his best to learn the art of wildlife photography in large part through the generous help of other Calgary area photographers. Shooting handheld, many of his shoots are taken in the laying position where “getting down” helps stabilize his camera and give an interesting POV. His pictures have been featured on the Birds Calgary site, City of Calgary Publications, Friends of Fish Creek, the Treehugger Blog and a co-workers T-shirt (smile).
