As part of my "fitness before photography", I've successfully completed my second 50 miles mountain bike Epic Ride earlier this month. I've noticed a huge improvement with no lower back pain nor fatigue since last April. My training will continue in 2015 as scheduled. I look forward to some awesome photography!

Yours Truly - 2014 Festival of the Cranes Speaker - Maxis Gamez, All Rights Reserved

The 2014 Festival of the Cranes was a huge success for me. We had "funny" weather last year limiting our opportunities but this year was huge! I'm very grateful to be part of such large event. Thank you to all participants for having me and the organizers. It sure was my pleasure.

I've been invited to return in 2015 and once again, I'll be giving my all to everyone. Mark your calendars!

During the Festival of the Cranes, Canon allowed me to play with the new Canon 7D MKII. Next month's newsletter I will share some of my camera settings and what I learned from using the camera. In the mean time, let me share a few images created with the camera. Yes! the wait is worth it! Florida Bird Photography Tours Florida Bird Photography Tours Florida Bird Photography Tours

Bird Photography Workshops

2014 has come and gone! It's time to prepare ourselves for another successful year. In 2015 I will be leading less workshops and allow more time to my health and fitness. However, a few more workshops will be announced as we get closer to 2015.

I hope you can join me.
