Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival Reminder

My Florida Adventure Tours

The Pantanal, Brazil Tour


Reminder: Don't forget to join me in Titusville this week!

This will be my twelfth year participating as a speaker, workshop leader and booth owner during this great festival, and I look forward to once again seeing old friends and, hopefully, making some new ones. I will be leading two In-the-field photography workshops, which if you are interested in joining my group, you can sign up for on-line at: www.nbbd.com/fly. Plan for cooler weather, dress appropriately for the workshops! Because of the economy, many folks have been unable to afford tours to such exotic spots as my trips to Africa, Madagascar, Pantanal in Brazil, Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands. Therefore, I am devoting this year’s presentation to what we have right here in our own back yard, titled LOOKING OUT MY BACKDOOR ! This is a fifty-plus-minute presentation/production of images taken here in Florida and other areas of the United States. At the end of this slide program will be a session called “pick Joanne’s brain” where I’ll try and answer any and all questions.


For fun, great Photography, or ‘rubbing elbows’ with the local wildlife, scenics and all the fabulous nature we have right here In Our Own Backyard, don’t forget about my personalized, customized Florida tours:

“STROLL WITH THE PRO” - contact me and we'll arrange your "stroll" around your needs, and our mutual schedule.

“THE PONTOON PUTT” - I already have a few scheduled but arrangements can be made for more.

Or my instructional (if you want) photo tours on my beautifully, customized-by-me FOTOBOAT.

During the month of June (or even the middle to end of May) is my favorite time to visit this vast in-land wetland (largest on the planet), because, unlike it’s name, it is pretty dry as the rainy season is over, the floods have subsided, and it is cooler (no bugs). The animals gather around nearby ponds, watering holes and streams making “photo-opps” (or just viewing) them very easy. We spend most of the time on privately-owned cattle ranches and areas that harvest rice which attract hundreds & hundreds of species of birds & other wildlife…. capybaras, caymans, fox, giant anteaters, otters, howler monkeys to name just a few.

Photo Researchers, Editors, and Publishers:

As stated in previous newsletters, at no obligation to you, send me a “want list” of images you are looking for that may coincide with a trip I'm about to take, or have recently taken, and I'll do my very best to seek out that subject and shoot it with your request in mind. This may save you some expense, give me a specific mission and possibly a sale of that image. It's a ‘win, win situation'!

A quick reminder that my library of 35mm original slides houses approximately 75,000 images, and my digital library presently holds over 100,000 (and growing-hourly)!

My website holds an in-depth Stock Shop for your quick review: www.joannewilliamsphoto.com
