Photographing the Birds of Southwest Florida

Successful Bird Photography


Three hour excursion  8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Our three hour photographic exploration will allow you to capture the many varieties of birds in SW Florida. Joe Fitzpatrick will share his techniques that result in spectacular images of birds both on the flats and in flight. You will be tutored on the camera settings that consistently allow you to capture sharp, will exposed images of this most challenging of subjects.

This exploration is suitable for photographers of all skill levels and involves a minimal amount of walking.   You will need a lens, zoom or prime, of at least 200mm. As with all bird photography, the longer the better. A tripod is recommended and a circular polarizer is suggested.
