Black Skimmer Colony - A Day Outing

Photographed on June 19, 2018

This was my first visit to the Black Skimmer colony this year. I started out kayaking the marshy areas near the colony trying to find a spot they were skimming.  I came up empty in that search but did come across a few American Oystercatchers in the marsh which made for some nice photos. I then went to the colony for sunset.  This was my first evening shoot at this location and it proved to be an amazing spot for backlit photos which I love to shoot.  I tried to mix it up with backlight and front light as well as get some nice interaction photos.

You can watch a video of me shooting live that day below.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
