Florida Bird Photography Adventures specializes in private photography tours for individuals and groups who wish to photograph birds and bird behavior in their Florida habitat. Tour leaders Nick Leadley and David Meardon draw on their intimate knowledge of Southwest Florida birding hotspots and their passion for bird photography to offer a variety of locations with opportunities to view and capture compelling avian images.

      Our bird photography tours emphasize best photography and ethical practices in the field to assist photographers in optimizing their photography skills and documenting bird behavior. Tours are concentrated on Southwest Florida locations, including the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the Bailey Tract  and other birding hotspots on Sanibel Island, as well as Harnes Marsh, Estero Lagoon, burrowing owl and eagle nesting locations throughout Lee County.

      Nick is a professional nature and wildlife photographer and Registered Maine Guide who spends the winter months in Florida immersed in bird photography. David is a 35 year resident of Sanibel Island and professional photographer with an avid interest in the birds and wildlife of the region.

      Together they provide a custom experience for photographers whose goals are to explore and document the world of birds in Southwest Florida.
