Testimonials for our bird watching workshops
Joe is a true Master of bird photography and an astoundingly generous guy in the way which he is prepared to share his extensive experience and skills and patiently teach his techniques to all who join him on his Bird Shoots. His keen knowledge of South Florida and his pains-taking scouting for the best locations for optimum photographic opportunities immediately before each Shoot ensures that we all return home with a massive collection of outstanding photographs. However, it’s not just for the photographic opportunities that so many of us who have participated in these events continue to return. Joe is a wonderful host and huge fun to be with; and those who participate in his Shoots seem to be an equally amazing group of delightful, talented, generous and totally inspiring people. If you can possibly find a way to join one of Joe’s Bird Shoots, grab the opportunity: I can promise you that you will not regret it!

Florida Birding Workshop
I first met Joe through one of the internet forums I frequent. I was always drawn not only by the beauty of his images, but also by his enthusiasm, his will to share his knowledge and the high level of images he constantly produces. The day came to meet him in person over in Florida. Joe is a very unique individual, fun, good natured and caring. His vast knowledge of the area and the thorough research he does prior to the shoots guarantees great opportunities to capture what we were looking for.
I am happy to see that this experience has gained popularity and I strongly encourage anybody interested in this subject to participate, it is really worth it, not only to take good photographs, but to make good friends.

I met Joe as many have on a website. A finer Human or friend you will be hard pressed to find. Joe spends a tremendous amount of man hours before a workshop. Out gathering as much information possible and in putting it all together. So when its time to go out and shoot we all hit the peak times at each spot. His teaching style is free spirited and intuitive. He shares his techniques and skills willingly. There is much fun to be had before, during, and after the workshop. You will walk away with a greater understanding of equipment and new friends to share with. I for one will be back to enjoy all that is offered.

Florida Bird Shoot Workshop – Five Stars!
I have attended Joe McBroom’s Florida Bird Shoot Workshop three years in a row. It has been, not only educational and enriching, but a lot of fun! Joe is a genuine, caring, good natured, fun guy who happens to love nature photography! One of the most talented nature photographers I have met. He is generous with his time and advice, and always looks out for the best interest of the group. Joe has a way of attracting quality people to this event. Amazing photography comes out of the excursions, as well as wonderful memories. Great fun talking shop over meals. And we always look forward to the world-famous real fruit milkshakes on the Everglades excursion each year! Can’t wait to see everybody again next year!

Florida Bird Shoot Workshops
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the workshops that Joe has put together. I have been on 3 of them and have watched my photography improve by leaps and bounds with each outing, because of his teaching skills. :O) Joe is a great mentor and is exceedingly generous with his time and advice. He is quite patient with the new learners and gears his photography lessons to whatever level is necessary. He’s also a LOT of fun to be around. 🙂 I look forward to attending more of his events.
