Florida Photography Workshops Everglades Boat Tours
Joanne Williams' Biography  
June 13,2024

Florida Photography WorkshopJoanne is a widely traveled, published and accomplished freelance photographer from Florida specializing in wildlife and nature photography. Her work has afforded her the opportunity to travel and lead her Joanne Williams Photography Workshops & Tours to many areas of the world, including the Pantanal in Brazil, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, South Africa, the Caribbean Island, the Falkland Islands, the Pribolof Islands, the Galapagos Islands, Central and South America, Alaska and most other areas of the United States. Because her home state is Florida, the Everglades and other wildlife “hot spots” are frequently the focus of her lens! When at home in Florida she may be seen guiding her clients of her Florida Photography Workshops through swamps, marshes and wetlands aboard her FotoBoat, a personally-customized craft that can maneuver fully-loaded in 6” of water accessing the wildlife ‘up close and personal’ If you're not a photographer, take her Everglades Boat Tours !

Her photography may be seen frequently in numerous publications such as:
RANGER RICK MAGAZINE, May 2009 issue, Birder’s World, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Defenders of Wildlife, the New York Times Magazine, educational text books, and six covers of Florida Audubon Magazine, The Naturalist. She has won numerous Excellence In Craft awards as a member of the Florida Outdoor Writer’s Assoc. (FOWA), an Addy Award for her website, which houses nearly 1,000 (and growing) stock images she has taken from all over the world, and accolades as a Keynote Speaker at the Kennedy Space Center/Titusville Wildlife & Birding Festival. Joanne reveals her proudest moment was seeing her award-winning image hanging in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC, an honor she was given for being “Highly Honored in Wildlife” by Nature’s Best Magazine.

Joanne is an active member of NANPA (North American Nature Photography Assoc.), FOWA, and a contributing photographer to VIREO (Visual Resources for Ornithology) at the Academy of Natural Science in Philadelphia. Her work is listed in the Green Book, as well as having over 100 mages in the AGPix on-line catalog. There are approximately 75,000 35mm slides in her library, and 25,000 (and growing) digitally-filed images.
