Each year St. Augustine hosts a great venue of birding and outdoor photography. The Photo Fest features world-class photographers and instructors who offer technical training workshops and birding in-field programs. A photography friend and I participate every year and this year was no exception. We benefit from insights and instruction from superb international nature and wildlife photographers — a group that contributes greatly to Florida’s Birding & Photo Fest as one of the premier events in North America. We’ve been attending this terrific event for the past four years and feel that we’ve learned so much.
