To promote its Birds as Art destination workshop, Canon has published a seven-part tutorial series, hosted by renowned bird photographer Arthur Morris.

In the tutorials, which average around 6-minutes in length, Morris breaks down a number of important techniques, lessons and settings to take into consideration when capturing birds and other wildlife.

Not surprisingly, these videos contain a handful of promotional shoutouts to Canon and the gear Morris is using, but that by no means negates the value of the information shared throughout the videos.

All seven of the videos are available for free on Canon’s Digital Learning Center, but for your convenience, we’ve gathered them below in the order presented on Canon’s site.
