Wildlife Workshop with Dawn Wilson – Hands On Shooting

by Ellen Nelson

Workshop report by Tom Goldberg:
Dawn did a nice presentation, discussed some wildlife photography strategies and gave us some specific insights into bighorn behaviors. We then left the firehouse around 10:30 for Waterton Canyon and walked about 2.5 miles up the road that parallels the South Platte. Dawn spotted the bighorn about halfway in, but they were way up on the hillside (just a couple of rams) and never came down. We kept going and had lunch at a picnic spot while Dawn did some scouting. She came back and reported that she’d spotted a beaver so we all grabbed our gear and stood at the side of the river shooting him working on his lodge and munching willows.

Original Post:
Meet at 9:00 am at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building for Dawn’s introduction, instruction and prep. Then the group will travel to the scenic Waterton Canyon in Littleton for an amazing hands-on opportunity to shoot wild bighorn sheep and other wildlife. Wear clothing appropriate for a 2-mile hike and pack a lunch, water and your camera gear.

Saturday, November 2, 9:00 am to after 4:00 pm (based on sunset).
Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building (1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen) and beyond
