Photography Workshops by the Crane Trust

The Crane Trust is a non-profit conservation organization located on the Platte River, near Grand Island. We protect over 10,000 acres of land which are crucial habitat for Whooping Cranes, Sandhill Cranes, and other migratory birds. Two photo workshops, in July and October, will take place at the Crane Trust and are held on our largest piece of property - over 5,000 continuous acres of historic Nebraska prairie. 

These workshops will not only feature opportunities to photograph beautiful prairie landscapes, wildflowers, and a wide array of wildlife, but participants will also have the chance to photograph our genetically pure bison herd. 

Tuition for these workshops is all-inclusive which includes lodging in our comfortable cottages, meals and drinks including wine and beer, workshop instruction, as well as on-ground transportation. A portion of each tuition is also tax-deductible as it goes directly to our conservation efforts.

Space for these workshops is very limited. If anyone has questions or would like to reserve a spot in the workshop, they can contact me directly at or at (720)284-8432.
