Fine-Art Bird Photography in Floridasnowy egret

Join me on Florida's Space Coast to immerse yourself in the art of bird photography. This exclusive instructional photo safari is limited to 6 participants for a personal experience that you can't get from the big tours. I offer "ask me anything" instruction during the safari to ensure you're getting the best quality images. Because of the small group size, I'm able to offer a more intimate instructional style that allows each participant to get the knowledge they need to succeed.

Each day, we will have the opportunity download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. 

When: January 28- Feb 1, 2018
