"I had the pleasure of a private bird photoshoot/workshop today with Randall Patterson, who is a master wildlife photographer specializing in birds. His work is amazing. I learned so much today from Randall and was able to take some pretty decent shots. My painted bunting shots today are my best photos ever of this species, one of the most colorful birds on the planet."

"If you want to take the air dancing shots of the incredible Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Randall Patterson is your man. He exemplifies the phrase “Southern Hospitality” in every sense. I booked his services for 3 days. Each day, he drove me around in his vehicle and went out of his way to make sure I was happy and getting the right shots. The Barred Owls were a bonus and I really enjoyed the drive, the wait and finally, the shoot of the pair. I would love to come back for his Burrowing Owl workshops in summer."

"My friends and I drove all the way from the gulf coast to meet with Randall for his Burrowing Owl workshop and it was worth it. He contacted us the day before after scouting prime shooting locations for us to shoot to coordinate the meetup. The next morning we met, he made sure we were all comfortable with our shooting settings and we were off. We went from location to location getting lots and lots of opportunities for great shots of the owls. Prairie dogs and rabbits were an added bonus. We walked away with smiles on our faces and full memory cards!"
