Photographing deer in Shenandoah National Park

I’ve been so taken with the opportunities to photograph the deer in the Shenandoah National Park, that I’ve now gone twice this summer.  Once on my own and then again to shoot a story for WSLS-10.

We were fortunate to run into wildlife photographer Jim Fields on the most recent trip, and I want to thank him for sharing some of his secrets with our viewers.

Having said that, it’s one thing to know the secrets, and another to put them to use.  It’s not easy.  Like a corner kick in soccer, all you can do is create situations where you have a chance to “score.

“All you can do is come here and put yourself in position to have an opportunity to take a memorable picture,” he said.  “And here you have more opportunities than other places.”

If you would like to take a shot at taking a shot – of if you would just like to see the deer for yourself, the Park is only a little over two hours from Roanoke, and overnight stays are reasonable.  Camping is also available.
