Photography Workshops and Tours South West Florida photography workshop
Burrowing Owls - photography workshop
This workshop has been completed.

Visit Florida when the birds are plentiful and the weather is, well, better than any other place in the country. Come explore, learn and photograph some of Florida’s hottest birding locations with a Florida Native, Photographer and Master Naturalist, James Shadle.

On our list of locations for this photography workshop, weather being the variable, are:
Ding Darling NWR, Venice Rookery, Little Estero Lagoon, Captiva Pass, Cape Coral and the Sanibel Fishing Pier

This workshop takes you to some of Florida’s legendary birding locations. Spoonbills and White Pelicans are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Baby birds, breeding colors and migrants make this the time and place to be in Florida.

Expect busy days, sunrise to sunset. But for those who desire a break, no problem. You can relax and recoup during a midday break. Many like to break at lunch, a rest sped from the midday sun, or just a refreshing nap. We will make arrangements for everyone to meet for the afternoon shoot; others may join me for some midday macro (if I don’t fall asleep under a tree).

This time of year the weather can be paradise, hot or believe it or not cold. Be prepared, I like to wear light weight long sleeve shirts and long light weight fast drying pants. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen and while at this time of year, we almost never need insect repellent, just in case, bring your favorite insect repellent. This way I know we won’t need it.

We hope to photograph:
