Welcome, Josh McKee, wildlife photographer to the 2021 Field Meet

Josh McKee, wildlife photographer, will be joining us at the November 2021 Field Meet in Oneonta. McKee has been a sports and wildlife photographer for over a decade, so you know he can get an action shot AND debate sports statistics too! His clients include NBT Bank, Paragon Racquet and Athletic Club, Pratt and Whitney, the University of Pennsylvania, Keene State College, Moravian College, and numerous news outlets across the US. He is excited to have an opportunity to work with us.

You can see McKee’s photography here (for some examples of raptor-specific pictures, go to page 6 of the gallery)

What will McKee Photograph?

Josh is excited to get into the field. We’d love some volunteers to take him along on hunts Friday afternoon/ evening and Saturday morning of the meet. Photos from these hunts will be published to our website, and the Mews News, but Josh will also have prints available for you if you want them for yourself. If you want your raptor or hunt professionally photographed, this is your absolute best chance to get it done.

McKee will also take portraits of falconers and their raptor(s), Saturday afternoon for those who would like them. These will be more posed, and taken right at the hotel. We would like to schedule time slots in advance to make Josh’s day smoother (and yours!). The actual photo shoots will be done free of charge, and then you may purchase the shots you like from Josh’s website later.

To schedule a portrait or take Josh on your hunt, please reach out to Matt Vercant at vicepresident@nysfa.org. Hunting slots are very limited and will be first-come-first served, so don’t be shy!
