Photography Workshops and Tours West Central Florida I photography workshop
Marbled Godwit - Ft. DeSoto 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:
Ft.Desoto, Venice Rookery, Honeymoon Island, Cockroach Bay Preserve, Apollo Beach Preserve and Wolf Branch Creek Preserve.

This workshop is a nice mix of the “sure thing” locations (Ft.Desoto and Venice) and locations that are off the beaten path, but very rewarding.

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 is also a nice workshop for those who might be interested in macro photography. When the sun is high (and so is the contrast) I like to photograph macro subjects.
It is a great way to squeeze every drop of light out of a day.

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:
