Nature_Photography_Mentorship_Program

Greetings,

Over time I’ve received several requests to create a “Mentorship Program”. Many photographers today continue to feel frustrated with other professionals by attending field workshops only to come home with a short learning experience and in some cases with any at all! At the same time some feel over-whelm with so much information that they don’t know what to do with it after they return home.

This individualized Mentorship Program is designed for those that wish to learn, grow and move forward by learning from one source. No more “he” said… “she” said.. Who’s right?! This program is dedicated to Bird and Landscape Photography only.

Working with a mentor will allow you to expand your photographic knowledge, skills, and to refine your photographic style. A mentorship is often goal-oriented; it could lead to expanding your field techniques, digital workflow, managing your equipment and learning what truly takes to create award winning images.

I'm very excited to launch this new program for 2013 and beyond with the support of Hunt's Photo & Video as the official sponsor.

Man-oh-man... If I've been lucky with the Eagles!! After several years wishing to photograph them matting, my wishes have become a reality! Everything came together that morning. I was jumping on one foot of excitement!!

I hope 2013 is a great year for all of you as well!!

Happy New Year!

The Alligator Fram 20th Annual Photo Contest!!

I'm extremely happy to be part of one of the most known photo contest in Florida. The Alligator Farm 20th Annual Photo Contest!!

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park's Wild Bird Rookery presents a unique opportunity for photographers to capture intimate images of nesting Florida seabirds. Roseate spoonbills, wood storks, great egrets, snowy egrets, and several heron species swoop in each year to raise their young in the trees over our Alligator Swamp. The wooden walkway through this natural wetlands exhibit provides up-close viewing of the undisturbed birds. Adult birds displaying brilliant breeding plumage and downy chicks popping curious heads just above the walls of their nest grant amateur and professional photographers with world-class photo sessions.

Annual Photo Contest awards the top shots taken at the Wild Bird Rookery throughout the breeding and nesting season. Don't miss the chance to have your work judged by an experienced photographer, and to snap the photo of a lifetime at our Wild Bird Rookery!

Photo contest is NOT limited to bird photography only as other animals are also WELCOME and highly recommended. To learn more about the contest and to participate, please follow these links:
