Bird Photography Workshops

Come join us in southwest Florida as the winter bird population swells with migrants taking up residence along the Gulf Coast. During your three-day bird photography trip in the Fort Myers - Sanibel Island area you will also get to meet the native avian residents as they go about their daily lives. 


Spring participants will get to encounter the migrants from South and Central America as they travel north to their summer breeding grounds. Whether in winter or spring the workshops will offer abundant opportunities to photograph birds, improve your bird photography bird skills and learn to approach your subject in a safe and respectful manner. We look forward to hearing from you.

For two guides a minimum of four participants is required for the three-day workshops.
