Spectacular Snowy Owls in a wintry landscape

One of the most unmistakable birds in nature, the Snowy Owl draws admiration from birders and non-birders alike. This workshop is your chance to photograph this magnificent owl in winter scenes. Its striking white, speckled plumage and piercing yellow eyes become even more stunning when it takes flight.

We have been leading Snowy Owl workshops since 2013 and will put you in the right place and instruct you on the best techniques to get exceptional images of these owls.


  • Private access to farmers’ fields that others cannot enter.
  • Guided by two professional photographers with intimate knowledge of the Snowy Owls’ behaviors and hunting habits to maximize your encounters.
  • We scout and monitor the owls weeks before you arrive.
