Ed Konrad’s interest in bird photography began when his wife, Aija, began birding 14 years ago. Since then, this has become a mutual hobby for them…photography, birding, and travel. With their hobby, they’ve traveled extensively across the US (49 of 50 states), and to many countries in Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.

On November 2, Ed will share what he’s learned through the years photographing birds. Topics will include the gear, camera settings, shooting birds at rest, in motion in flight, looking for interesting shots, positioning, patience, composition through the lens, locations and times for bird photography on and off Seabrook, and lightroom techniques.

Ed emphasizes he is an amateur photographer. He’d like the program to be a “workshop” to discuss and share tips and techniques around these various topics of bird photography. He hopes to learn from other photographers as well in this interactive session!

Ed is on the Board of Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) and has contributed to many initiatives to protect Seabrook’s shorebirds. For the past two years, Ed and Aija have been coeditors of the monthly SIB articles and photos in The Seabrooker. Ed is also the featured photographer on the Photo Club Wall at The Lake House.
