SHIRLEY -- Peter Christoph will present a narrated slideshow of his favorite bird photographs, all taken right here in Massachusetts, on Thursday, Feb. 27, from 6:30-8 p.m. His program is both entertaining and informative as he shares stories of his photographic adventures and the techniques he uses to capture his images as well as his favorite places to take photos of birds in their natural habitat.

Massachusetts native Peter Christoph is an award-winning wildlife photographer, author and speaker, having given presentations at Mass Audubon, the Appalachian Mountain Club and numerous schools, libraries and camera clubs across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.

His photographs have appeared in national magazines, including "Professional Photographer" and "Photoshop User," and have been featured several times on the cover of "New England Printer and Publisher" magazine.

His book, "BIRDS," is available at select Mass Audubon Sanctuaries. In addition to his bird photography slideshow, Peter gives another popular presentation titled Kilimanjaro: Journey to the Roof of Africa.
