Amazing Golden Eagle Festival Photo Workshop

Mongolian Eagle Hunters

The Eagle Huntress is Amazing!

You probably know that I am going to be leading a photography workshop to Mongolia to capture the annual Golden Eagle Festival. One thing that you may not know is there is about to be a movie star in their midst! Sony Pictures and National Geographic have made a upcoming feature film about Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl, as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter! The amazing news is that she has earned her Golden Eagle!

Seriously I could not write a better promo than that to convince you come with me to Mongolia to see the Golden Eagle Festival and with any luck photograph the new darling of Mongolia, Aisholpan the Eagle Huntress!

    Oh so cool! I heard an NPR story about Aisholpan, and she sounds absolutely amazing. I’m jealous that you’ll get to meet her — sounds like a fabulous workshop!
