Photography hobbyists and wildlife enthusiasts are invited to join award-winning professional photographer Tom Ulrich as he presents some of his latest works during a two-day event at Will Rogers Senior Center, 3501 Pat Murphy Drive.
At 7 p.m. April 4, Ulrich, who lives in West Glacier, Mont., will give a presentation on his time spent capturing shots of some of the world’s most elusive wildlife species. His tales of adventure will focus on birds of Florida, National Parks of the West and the Eastern Mediterranean. A sign language interpreter will be present for the hearing-impaired. The presentation is free, and all ages are welcome.
Photo hobbyists can join Ulrich from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 5 for an instructional photography workshop. Ulrich will share techniques on how to capture photographs of wildlife in their native habitat. The workshop costs $50 per person (paid directly to Ulrich at the event) and includes one of Ulrich’s photography books.
Preregistration is required through the Parks Department’s online registration system at www.okc.gov/active.
Ulrich has spent more than 30 years photographing wildlife in some of the world’s most remote locations. His work has been featured in National Geographic, Audubon, National Wildlife, Outdoor Oklahoma, American Hunter and other publications.
