FCCP Macro & Close-Up PhotoWalk at John Taylor Park

No special lenses are required.  In fact, your Point-n-Shoot may even do a better job of close-ups than your bigger dSLR.  So just bring any camera and join the fun!  I'll gladly share how to make better macro photos on each PhotoWalk.  You're also welcome to just enjoy the outdoors with fellow photographers and shoot whatever you like.

We'll spend a little time looking for the pair of Great horned Owls that call the park home.  There are usually plenty of Ibis, Herons and Egrets to keep us busy as well. 

This park was named in honor of John S. Taylor. A staunch supporter of Pinellas County’s independence from Hillsborough, Mr. Taylor ironically served as a Hillsborough County State Representative from 1905 until defeated in 1910 for his stand on creating a separate Pinellas. As a lobbyist attending the 1911 session of the legislature, he successfully assisted the effort for Pinellas independence in 1912. Mr. Taylor also served as a State Senator, Mayor of Largo, President of the Florida Citrus Exchange and as a Member of the State Citrus Commission. Not only was he one of the county’s landowners of vast acreage, he owned one of the most successful citrus growing and packing businesses in Florida.

After the PhotoWalk we can visit a nearby restaurant if members want to.

My Recommended Retailers

Where you buy your gear matters. You expect to get what you ordered and you want to pay a low price for it. The retailers I recommend below are the ones I trust for my own purchases.

Bringing you the activities and this site is now a full time job (typically 60-80 hours per week). Thus, I depend on membership fees and on the commissions received from you using the links on this site to make any purchase. My family and I are grateful for your support! - Jeff
