Personalized Guide Service

If you are going to be in Southern California and have specific “target” birds to photograph, I am available to guide you.  All skill levels are welcome.  I have extensive knowledge of best locations and times of year.  I am very capable of navigating the biggest and most congested freeway system on the planet!  Please contact me to discuss your needs and schedule.
