The Raptor Series - WBS Birds feature in photographic exhibition

I had the opportunity last week to witness some truly breathtaking photographs. Real works of art that literally made me stop in my tracks. Of course, the subject matter happens to be one close to my heart: Birds of Prey.

The expressions captured by renowned photographer, Rob Westrich, are incomparable to any other work I have witnessed. His use of lighting in combination with the black white palette make for fine artwork that must be seen first hand to be appreciated.

Rob Westrich of the Westrich Photographic Gallery photographed a selection of our birds from the World Bird Sanctuary over several months in his studio in Clayton. The entire second floor of his studio is dedicated to this collection, which he appropriately named "The Raptor Series." These are available in limited edition, and feature eagles, owls, hawks, falcons and more. Images are each signed and numbered, limited to 50 prints, and available in various sizes.

Westrich Photography held a grand opening on June 24, 2009, and donated part of the proceeds from that evening to WBS.

The Gallery is open to the public for viewing "The Raptor Series," Tuesdays through Fridays from 10:00am to 6:00pm, Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00pm, and by appointment.

You can contact the gallery at:

I encourage you to stop by for a dramatic look at raptors from a whole different perspective.
