Park Photo Guides Grand Opening!

It has grown very quiet around here in recent months and I must apologize but my time has been consumed with preparing the launch of Park Photo Guides.  This new website offers site guides for nature photographers that cover the nation’s national parks and other popular photographic destinations.  These site guides are written by photographers with extensive experience photographing in the park and know both where to go and where to avoid.  The guides are available as PDF eBooks and will be updated regularly, free of charge.

Right now, we have two guides for sale covering Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida, but we have more currently in development and I will be updating the site as they are published.  I hope to have at least one or two more published by the end of this year and a large wave coming next year.

In the meantime, if you are considering a trip to South Florida to photograph birds or the unique landscape of the Everglades, be sure to stop by and check out our site guides!

Additionally, we are offering a 25% discount for our first two weeks so be sure to pick up a copy of the guides before November 15th to take advantage of the sale!
