Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

I've enjoyed photographing these Peregrine Falcons that nest along the cliffs in southern California at a number of locations. These cliff nests allow us to photograph the parents and fledglings as they fly, hunt, and feed - many times at eye level.  They are fascinating birds as they perform aerobatics and high G turns with ease.  We spend the morning shooting the falcons at either San Pedro or Rancho Palos Verdes, then we head over to Huntington Beach after lunch to shoot songbirds there.  Beyond the normal songbirds and raptors, Huntington Beach also has a large population of African and Asian exotics that live and nest here in the summer: Orange Bishop, Nutmeg Manniken, Pin-tailed Whydah, Orange-cheeked Waxbills, and the Red-whiskered Bulbul.

We meet at either my home in Tulare for those riding south to Los Angeles with me, or in Los Angeles itself if you live closer.    We travel down to photograph the falcons and have lunch in Huntington Beach.  We usually finish around 3pm or so.

The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, or credit card, and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full payment is due.  Check the main safari page for other information.  Spouses can ride/walk along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle to travel in.  Link 

This is a 1 day safari.

I've spent my 38-year wildlife photography career shooting in the American West.  The first 23 years shooting out of Utah, the past 15 years out of California.  With 1500 published photo credits, dozens of magazine covers and article, and a lifetime wandering the roads of the west, the photo safaris that I lead are all to the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife activity periods. 
Difficulty Level Dates

Easy  -  a little walking, driving in LA traffic. Monday, June 19,   Thursday, June 29    $250
The weather on the coast can change so dress in layers, though we should have cool mornings and pleasant afternoons, and possibly the marine layer or fog.  Light shooting gloves can make the photography much easier and more comfortable if its cool. It is exciting to photograph these peregrine falcons. I'm always looking for an aerial food exchange as the parents bring back food to their fledglings.  The young birds are constantly screaming for food, flying to-and-fro, and giving us great moments.
