Join me for a bird photography safari in Everglades National Park!

Meals, transportation and lodging are the responsibility of the participant; I will arrange a block of rooms at a discounted group rate at a local hotel.
We will be based in Florida City, Florida, for quick access to the park. I’ve deliberately scheduled this itinerary to be during weekdays to minimize crowds in the shooting locations.

I have been following the Image Docs since the beginning. Keep up the good work.
Your trip sounds great. At your suggestion, I have been to the St Augustine Alligator Farm & Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. I was blown away by both. I am very interested in participating the trip.
Thanks for your comment. There will be virtually no hiking on this trip. Every spot is within driving distance and the walks are very short on paved sidewalks! If you would like to register for the workshop, you need to visit my Meetup Page.
