We had birds of prey at Swanson Studio! This was such an exciting day for us for a couple reasons: one, because we never get to work with animals (other than humans of course!), and two, they were very active! At one point Dmitri, the Eurasian owl, flew up on top of one of our out-of-reach cabinets. Kit had to bring him down with a ladder! And, Kaida, the four-month-old Saker falcon was curiously poking around in between lights in the studio!
We have to thank Kit and Laurin from the Cascades Raptor Center for coming up from Eugene, and of course, Dmitri and Kaida, who were quite the talent!
Watch the behind the scenes video!!!!
Check out the polaroids.
There was one point, where almost everyone in the studio had their phones out taking photos of the birds. After some facebook sleuthing, we found these instagram photos. Guess who took which one?
Thanks everyone! This was such a fun and different shoot than what we’re used to!
