Shawn moved from his home in Pennsylvania to Massachusetts in 1986 and started watching birds in 1988. His avid interest in photography was joined with a newfound passion for birding and he began to combine the two in 1991. By 1994, he and good friend Jim Grady started Migration Productions as a way to present their multi-image slide presentations to a live audience.
Migration Productions offers the finest quality bird and wildlife programs with stunning photographs, video, and soundtracks. They feature interviews with many people involved with bird watching and natural history topics. Since 1994, Migration Productions has presented its programs to camera clubs and natural history and birding organizations including Mass Audubon, Eastern Mass Hawk Watch, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and countless others.
Shawn’s photos have been published in the Boston Globe, New York Times, Mass Audubon Sanctuary magazine, Science magazine, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary magazine and many others over the last 20 years. In 1997, he started teaching bird photography workshops (Fundamentals of Bird Photography) for the Massachusetts Audubon and he is an instructor for Summer Fields Schools on Cape Cod for Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

Tanzania: A Photographer’s Journey
East Africa evokes images of vast grasslands teeming with exotic animals. Enormous herds of wildebeests, zebras, antelopes, and gazelles graze under the watchful eyes of Africa’s great predators. It is nature at its most wild. In a region abundant with wildlife, perhaps no country is as celebrated as Tanzania. Home to the world famous Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, Tanzania is a nature enthusiast’s paradise.
For this special presentation, join wildlife photographer Shawn Carey on an adventure into the heart of Tanzania. We’ll take a safari vehicle into the country’s spectacular national parks and see the “Big Five”—African Elephant, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Lion, and Leopard—in all their glory. Along the way, we’ll search for and photograph Cheetahs, Giraffes, Black-backed Jackals, and Hippos. And we’ll encounter a panoply of Tanzania’s wonderful and amazing birds, including the Greater Flamingo, Lilac-breasted Roller, Little Bee-eater, Giant Kingfisher, and Grey-crowned Crane—the country’s national bird. If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting East Africa and its incredible wildlife, this is a journey you’ll never forget. And it may just have you planning your own African adventure.
