As story collectors sometimes we become the story.  How we got the shot, the journey, our passions, even close calls with life itself.  In this presentation, Nikon Ambassador, Kristi Odom will take you diving with whale sharks, head to head with charging grizzly bears, up close with spiders, hanging from ropes, all in a quest to capture the beauty in a fraction of a second.  Get ready for a night of the action behind capturing her iconic award-winning images.






 About Kristi…
An internationally acclaimed photographer and sought-after motivational speaker, Kristi travels the world shooting, teaching and sharing her insights. From destination weddings in Thailand to conservation projects in the jungles of Borneo, she's always on the move, always ready to connect with others. When she was 16 years old, Kristi Odom, picked up her grandfather’s camera and fell in love with the beauty of the natural world. Ever since then she has been driven to capture what’s real, raw, and compelling about the people and animals she photographs. Now, as an internationally acclaimed photographer, a Nikon Ambassador and sought-after motivational speaker, Kristi makes her home in Washington DC, and travels the world shooting, teaching, and sharing her insights so she can help make our planet a better, more loving place. From destination weddings in Thailand to conservation projects in the jungles of Borneo she is always on the move, and always ready to connect with others through her love for photography and Mother Earth.

Kristi’s first assignments centered around shooting musicians, and the more she shot, the more she focused on emotional moments. Over the years those emotional moments have become the photographs that define her style. Whether she’s documenting a couple in love, or a spider monkey mourning the loss of her mother, her compassion for her subjects shines through and is fundamental to her work.

  With presentations created for Nikon, WPPI, Fearless, and the Georgia Institute of Technology among others, Kristi teaches photographers to focus on improving their work through creating an emotional connection, and to give back through personal projects. Her accolades include a Master’s accreditation from WPPI, and over 60 international photography awards including 2 Nature's Best Photography awards and 26 Fearless awards. Her recent work has been exhibited twice at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

Birds of Prey Outdoor Photography Session

Birds of Prey Outdoor Photography Session

I am organizing a two hour photography trip to Wingmasters on Saturday, November 17th (rain date Sunday, November 18th).   We will meet near Deerfield, MA and carpool to Leverett, MA where we will meet Jim, Julie and their Birds of Prey.  We should have the chance to photograph owls, hawks, falcons and possibly a golden eagle.  I have led many trips to their location and you can’t ask for much more than what Jim and Julie offer.  They are both artists and will put most of the birds in trees with the jesses/leashes hidden which allows for some great photos!  They even put screech owls together for the first time!

We will probably meet around 8 a.m and then travel to Leverett with photographing from 9-11 a.m. at Wingmasters.  The trip is limited to 12 people and the cost is $50 per person.  

Please contact Debbie Koundry to reserve your spot at 203-558-2372 or email ddonofrio@snet.net no later than October 21st.  If the weather is good for the 17th and we have enough interest, we may do another trip on the 18th since the date is being held for me.

From Wingmasters website:
Wingmasters is a partnership of two people dedicated to increasing public understanding and appreciation of North American birds of prey.  Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks are both licensed raptor rehabilitators based in Massachusetts.  Together they care for injured birds of prey.  Most of the birds they rehabilitate can ultimately be released back into the wild, but in some cases the birds are left permanently handicapped.  Julie and Jim are further licensed to provide a home for these nonreleasable raptors, and to use them for educational programs.  Since 1994 Wingmasters has presented over 5000 programs at schools, libraries and museums throughout New England.

Thank you,
