At Wild Florida Photography, it is our goal to teach you how to photograph nature beautifully while you have fun learning!

Taking yourself to the next level and getting beyond “average nature photography” requires learning and understanding your subject. To get the “great image”, knowing your subject will be as important as any technical skill a photographer can posses.

At Wild Florida Photography we are qualified to teach you about your subject as well as the technically skills needed to photograph it beautifully.

We feel strongly, that when you return home, regardless of your level of experience, you will take with you, new skills, new images and the confidence to make great images time and time again.

For this reason, we have selected the most qualified instructors.
Teaching and touring at the best sites, at the optimum time of year for our nature photography workshops, classes and tours.

As naturalists, photographers, and Floridians, we want to help you successfully and beautifully photograph the many species and ecosystems of our beautiful state.

Contact us for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions
What level of experience do I need?
Everyone will find our nature photography workshops and tours to be a great learning experience.
The experience of our participants vary from beginners to advanced amateur to the pro who just wants to learn their way around. We only require that you know the basic operation of you equipment and suggest you know how to operate the advanced features as well. Bring your instruction book just to be safe!
[TOP]

Does weather alter workshop / tour plans?

We do watch the weather, and based on the most current reports we make minor adjustments to maximize our effectiveness and time in the field.
[TOP]

How should I dress?
Wear casual cloths you don’t mind getting dirty or wet.
Even in Florida it can get cool in the winter, so a light jacket might be handy.I prefer long pants, a good hat, sunscreen and bring mosquito repellent of your choice. (Mosquitoes are rarely a problem in the areas we work in) Have a towel in the car and a large garbage bag in your camera bag or vest.
[TOP]

What about transportation?
All participants are responsible for their own transportation to and during the workshop/tour. If we can help with rental car arrangements or work out car-pooling with the other participants, we will be happy to.
[TOP]

How does a typical day look?

On most days we are out before sunrise, taking a continental style breakfast with us, to make sure we take advantage of the sweet morning light. On sunny days we will shoot until mid-morning, breaking for lunch, naps, etc. We will meet again mid afternoon and shoot until after dark. On overcast days, we will shoot even when the sun is high in the sky.
[TOP]

Meals?
All meals are the workshop/tour participant’s reasonability.
Breakfast is usually a continental on the run, some like to go to a restaurant for lunch, others may want to picnic, I all ways have a large cooler with ice and water, and room for pick nick lunches. The evening meal is up to you, but it is a great time to get together and discuss what was covered during the workday.
[TOP]

What is a Florida Freshwater Wetlands Master Naturalist (FFWMN)?
A FFWMN is a person who has successfully completed the FFWMN program presented by the University of Florida. One of the programs' objectives is to increase ones knowledge of freshwater wetland systems. The other object is to teach each FFWMN how to share their knowledge with others. The overall goal of the program is to assist others to develop a greater appreciation and respect for the land, and all creatures within it.
[TOP]

Why is our photography workshop tuition so low compared to others?
1. We live in Florida, so our travel costs are lower.
2. We stay at home, humble motels, or camp in the field.
3. Our meal costs are low, as we enjoy picnicking.
4. We love what we are doing.
[TOP]

How do I register for a photography workshop, and how do deposits and payments work?
Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email for space availability and registration
[TOP]

What is your refund policy?
If you cancel 60 or more days prior to the event we will refund your tuition less a $50 handling charge. If you cancel between 60 days and 30 days your tuition will be refunded only if we fill your slot. There is no refund for cancellations less than 30 days before the event.
