Bird Dog Photography Workshop

If you want to improve the photos you take of your favorite flushing or pointing dog, or any dog for that matter, I can't think of a much better way than attending this workshop led by Hannah Stonehouse Hudson (http://stonehousephotoblog.com/2015/02/bird-dog-photography-workshop-at-pineridge-grouse-camp/).  The workshop, hosted by Pineridge Grouse Camp in northern Minnesota, takes place May 28-31 and features a private session with Hannah.


I met Hannah in October of 2012 when she photographed a grouse and woodcock hunt in northwestern Wisconsin for A Passion for Grouse, a massive grouse book for which I wrote a chapter.  Dennis LaBare set up the hunt and brought along his pack of setters.  It was a foggy morning, and the popple woods Dennis selected was full of flight bird woodcock.  Hannah took some of the finest pictures of birds dogs I have ever seen, but then I'm quite biased as many were of Fergus.  My favorite picture is below, which I like to call "Fergus in Birdland."
