2023 Florida Bird Photography Tour/Workshop

'BIF and More'

April 2-9, 2023


The workshop is open to all experience levels. The main objective is to make sure you come away with some incredible photos and have squeezed every bit of performance out of your camera.

Some of the things we will cover are camera and lens settings, hand-held shooting techniques, birds-in-flight, subject isolation, manual exposure mode, getting the most out of natural lighting, anticipating bird behavior, tips and tricks that combine to give you stunning images, composition and more.

Each workshop will have a maximum of 3-4 people. This is to ensure everyone has the opportunity to receive 1-on-1 instruction but also the time and space to get their perfect shot.

Leading the tour is award-winning photographer Andy Nguyen. He has had 12 years of experience guiding and teaching this workshop. Many of his photos which have won prestigious nature/wildlife international competitions were taken right here in Florida.
