Geoff is our Featured Artist at the festival and one of Southwest Florida’s finest nature photographers and instructors. Geoff exhibits and sells his award-winning avian images at outdoor fine art festivals from Florida to New Jersey.
Here is an overview of the workshops Geoff will be hosting:
Workshop 1 – Bird Photography Field Workshop
[Time: 3 hours – Cost: $75]
Making good nature photographs in the field is more than just luck: it’s the happy result of knowing your subject, their habitats, and their behaviors. Join Geoff Coe, an award-winning bird photographer and Featured Artist at the Wetlands Institute’s Fall Migration Festival, as he leads a hands-on, three-hour workshop in bird photography.
An experienced teacher and lecturer, Geoff will share tips and techniques that he’s honed over years of successful shooting, with minimal technical jargon and maximum practicality and sense of humor. You’ll learn how to work the light, approach wildlife without disturbing them, proper exposure and camera settings, photographing birds in flight, and more! Minimum lens of 200mm required (the longer, the better).
Email address is requested from each participant: Following the workshop, Geoff will send you a presentation that summarizes key points, tips, and tricks.
Tripod and flash are recommended but not mandatory. Check back for details about time and location.
Workshop 2 – Smarter Outdoor Pictures from your Smart Phone
[Time: 1 hour – Cost: FREE]
Bring your smart phone or basic camera with you for a walk on the Salt Marsh trail and learn how to improve your images of flowers, scenics, and other outdoor images. Check back for workshop schedule.
