Southwest Florida Workshop

Shiv Verma, well known to New England photographers for his many programs, workshops, and membership on the NECCC Executive Board, will be conducting a workshop in south western Florida from Feb. 18th through the 23rd. If winter is starting to get to you, this is the cure.

Florida is famous for bird photography, and the south west has some of the best bird photography opportunities in the state. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, Little Estero Lagoon, and the Venice Rookery are among the locations that will provide participants with plenty of great opportunities to capture great wildlife images.

The days of the workshop will be based on a very flexible schedule allowing the group to respond to the opportunities based on wildlife, weather, and light conditions for the best experience each day. Each day will start early to capture images in the best light.  The group will photograph throughout the morning, breaking at midday for lunch and open discussion sessions. After lunch they will head out for more photography, concluding near sunset, or after, based on location. Each evening the group will meet, download images, and have a feedback session. Instruction sessions will be included as will a prep session for the next day.

A block of rooms has been reserved at discounted rates at the Holiday Inn in Fort Myers Beach.
