The southwest coast of Florida is a haven for bird enthusiasts and photographers alike, offering a captivating spectacle of avian life against the backdrop of pristine beaches of Siesta Key, Longboat Key and Venice Beach. Delightful weather and a seafood-rich culinary landscape await. This coastal paradise boasts a diverse array of bird species, from majestic ospreys and pelicans to the colorful shorebirds like spoonbills and herons. The birds gracefully navigate the expansive skies and shallow waters, creating a dynamic and ever-changing visual feast for any photographer.

The beaches of southwest Florida are not just stretches of sand but rather canvases painted with hues of turquoise waters and golden sunsets. The tranquil waves lap against the shore, providing a serene setting where birds frolic along the waterline or soar against the azure sky. The picturesque scenery is a testament to the region's natural beauty, creating an ideal canvas for capturing moments of avian grace and coastal charm.

The weather in southwest Florida is a photographer's dream – a perpetual embrace of warmth and sunshine. The soft golden glow of the sun enhances the vibrant plumage of the birds and casts a radiant aura over the coastal landscapes. This consistent and welcoming weather allows for unhurried exploration and unhindered photographic opportunities. Sunrise and sunset on the beaches of SW Florida are memorable.

And then there's the culinary delight of fresh seafood, a treat for both the palate and the lens. The local cuisine, abundant in delectable offerings from the sea, provides a savory complement to the visual feast unfolding on the shores. The synergy of birds in flight, beach vistas, pleasant weather, and sumptuous seafood creates an irresistible allure for photographers, drawing them to the southwest Florida coast to capture moments that encapsulate the essence of this coastal paradise.

We must rely on your confirmed attendance to make important arrangements, reservations and payments in advance for your workshop to be a positive and pleasant experience. If you need to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible.


Your initial deposit is fully refundable within 72 hours of making the deposit. After 72 hours, your deposit becomes non-refundable. The balance of the workshop is due 30 days before the first day of the workshop. If your initial deposit is made inside of 30 days from the first day of the workshop, full payment may be required in lieu of the usual deposit. A payment schedule may be arranged if this makes attending a Soul Road Trip more possible for you. Contact me directly for an installment payment opportunity. EM


Sometimes you need to cancel a trip. Plans and desires change and we understand that. We also hope that you understand certain arrangements, reservations and plans must be made weeks if not months out from a workshop. Deposits are used to make these arrangements to make your experience a pleasant one. Of course, we wish you to come again and again and to tell your friends about your wonderful experience.


However, if you must cancel, please be aware of these policies. After the initial 72 hours after making a deposit, that deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel after 72 hours and 30 days before the first day of the workshop, any additional monies are refundable less a 15% administration fee. If you must cancel within 30 days before the first day of the workshop, all funds are non-refundable so we recommend travel insurance. Check out or for trip insurance opportunities.
