In this incredible 4-day workshop and tour, you will have the opportunity to explore 4 distinct and incredibly photographic locations that should be on every nature lover’s bucket list.
We will begin our tour in the mystical Okefenokee Swamp. Alligators, bears, turtles, cypress trees and Spanish moss will be a few of the items on our shot list here. As a bonus, we will shoot the sunset and night sky later in the evening. The next day will begin at Driftwood Beach as the sun rises. We will continue to explore this island while shooting long exposure ocean images, a variety of wading birds, and the occasional horse and rider out for an early morning run along the shore.
Our next stop will be St. Simons’ Island. There we will capture a variety of scenes from old churches to ships passing by to an assortment of birds standing watch. We will end this evening, capturing the light house as the sun sets behind it. Then continue shooting it as the night sky appears.
The next day we will head to St. Augustine to photograph an astounding variety of birds at every stage of life from eggs up through the fledglings to other chicks so large they are hard to distinguish from their parents. Hundreds, if not thousands, of birds nest here each year and are so close you can almost reach out and touch them (although this is strictly forbidden). We will end this evening as we head back up the coast shooting a few key locations as we go.
And if all of that is not enough, we will take time the last day to go over post processing. I will meet each person where they are and help them advance their editing skills to the next level. Once that session is complete, we will close our workshop out by having a fun photography contest, which is always a huge hit at my workshops. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded as well as an opportunity to enter some different regional contests from the places we just visited.
