Learn Bird Photography with Jason Odell
Join Jason for a four-day photo safari photographing the birds and wildlife of the Florida Everglades in March 2011.
The Florida Everglades is one of the premier birding locations in the United States. This is a can't-miss location for anyone interested in learning how to photograph birds in the wild. March is the bird breeding season and the weather is typically fantastic.
Dates: March 13-17, 2011
Location: Florida City, Florida (Hotel TBD)
This Meetup is limited to 10 participants to maximize instructor time. Tuition is $899 per person, and includes instruction and image critique sessions.
Meals, transportation and lodging are the responsibility of the participant; I will arrange a block of rooms at a discounted group rate at a local hotel.
We will be based in Florida City, Florida, for quick access to the park. I've deliberately scheduled this itinerary to be during weekdays to minimize crowds in the shooting locations.
