With its favorable climate and diverse vegetation, Florida has become a world-renowned hotspot for bird photography. With so many possible places to photograph birds in the state, how do you know where the best, most productive photo locations are? Why not let Florida-based nature and wildlife photographer Karen Schuneman be your guide? Schuenemann knows how to photograph birds.

The NANPA Florida bird regional event is timed to take advantage of the breeding season. Typically, there are 552 species of birds and almost 200 breeding birds here!  With Karen as your guide for this event based in the Orlando area, you’ll have the opportunity to photograph birds in their natural habitat on wildlife refuges, wetlands and in more close-up situations such as the rookery at Gatorland, where gators aren’t the only point of interest. Whether you’re a professional or just starting out, this is the perfect opportunity to create stunning bird photography memories. The early registration discount ends February 11th, so book your spot now and then enjoy the mild Florida temperatures and let your creativity take flight!
