If you want to have a chance to photograph Roseate Spoonbills in flight during breeding season, this is it! This two day bird photography workshop includes two boat rides to get close to Spoonbill rookeries in the Tampa Bay. The Tampa Bay rookery is the prime spot for Roseate Spoonbills in the entire state of Florida. The rest of the time will be spent at the Yellowstone of West Florida: Fort Desoto Park. This nature preserve is amazing for the diversity of shorebird species. You might even have a chance to photograph the elusive White morph Reddish Egret during this special bird photography tour!
Join me to the ultimate Alaska Bald Eagle action photography workshop! During 5 days, you will experience supberb action photography of Bald Eagles while they fish, fly or bank in the air. South of Anchorage, we will go on two boat rides per day to follow the eagles as they are fishing in the Alaska waters. This bird photography workshop is timed so that you are likely to have snow and the breathtaking Alaska landscape in the background. I can confidently say this the best Bald Eagle photo tour you will find out there!
As a multi-time participant in your photography workshops, both in a group format and in a private format, I have been thrilled with the quality of your teaching. You have helped me greatly recognize superior nature photography situations and placed me in the path of success many times. I am delighted with the results I have been able to achieve thanks to your directions and I am looking forward to further improving my nature action/flight photography skills as I will keep participate in your bird photography tours for sure! Plus, time flies when we are having fun. --- Ejaz K.
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed going to the spoonbill rookery with you. You were extremely generous with your time and knowledge. Your patience in showing me the techniques involved in photographing birds in flight is much appreciated and I learned a lot. Additionally, your love of photography and teaching are immediately obvious and infectious. All the best and I would wholeheartedly recommend your bird workshops to photographers of any level. I hope to be able to do another of your tours in the future. --- Patty G.
I appreciate the variety and organization of your 2 day spoonbill workshop. When you only have a short time and live in New England, it is nice to get a selection of birds we don't get to see. For two days you put us in the best position in great places we would not have been able to access otherwise and it really paid off. Having an agenda and sticking to it really optimized our time and your attention to everyone in the group ensured that we got the images we were looking for, a real trick since everyone is trying to get something different. Your style of teaching/sharing without hovering was much appreciated. I look forward to taking another workshop with you soon. --- Carole W.
I recently completed a three-day bird photography workshop with Steven – two days in a group and one private day. It was an excellent experience and I found Steve to be very tuned in to the needs of his clients. He also was very helpful with processing images after we had finished shooting. I would highly recommend any wildlife photography workshop with him. --- Dennis M.
