For this project we were challenged with assembling two teams of photographers, videographers, and drone specialists in order to document the translocation of Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers from the Osceola National Forest in North Florida to Jonathan Dickinson State Park in South Florida.
One team was required to work with the capturing wildlife specialists in the national forest at dusk one evening, while the other team stood-by to receive them when they arrived in the early morning hours of the next day. This project included multi camera zoom photography, videography, and drone photography and videography of the birds in their habitat. Several phases of this project were done in the deep woods after sunset. SDS also chose to partner with a wildlife expert who consulted on avian photography and ultimately assisted in the shoot in South Florida. In conclusion, several hundred unique pieces of content were delivered to the agency for their use in educational materials.
