This is a non-competitive, co-supportive group designed to promote and affirm photographers interested in wildlife photography. All are welcome, from entry-level to professional.
Economic travel options will be offered to local, national, and international hotspots, led by folks who have already experienced those areas and know the ropes.
Offered will be at least one trip per year to Southern Africa; also offered will be Coastal Texas for Whooping Cranes; Bosque Del Apache; Monterey CA; San Diego, CA; Huntington Beach, CA; Belize; Grand Manan Island for Puffins and Whales; Cape May, NJ; Great Inagua; The Olympic Peninsula; The San Juan Islands; Yellowstone; Grand Teton/National Elk Refuge/Dubois; Everglades National Park (off the trail); and all of the Florida Bird Rookeries and Roosts. We will not take you anywhere that we have not checked out first!
Monthly check-out shoots will be offered at ZooMiami or the fabulous Florida Keys Wild Bird Center. Instruction and discussion will be offered but not required at all outings.
Please DO NOT join this group if you can't be a team player in this individual art-form, if you can't be patient enough to wait for long periods of time to experience and capture certain animal behaviors, and if you can't get up at four in the morning when necessary.
Interest in the African Photosafari is suggested, as it truly is the ultimate wildlife experience. 2014 will be our ninth year as group leaders in Southern Africa. The trips are less expensive than most Alaskan vacations, and offer unexpectedly nice accomodations and comfort.
