THIS IS A SPECIFIC TOUR FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS…
Understand and appreciate nature in order to capture her essence through photography. Join famed photographer, Rick Cruz, for a rare opportunity to go into the swamp on an eco-photo safari. A 20-year veteran of nature photography, Rick specializes in Everglades’ landscapes and shares his vast knowledge of the environment while offering his expertise in discussing composition. Rick’s artwork has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums, and has appeared in four PBS Documentary Specials as well as various books and magazines. His images can be viewed online at rickcruzphotography or at Clyde Butcher’s Big Cypress Gallery, where they are on permanent display.
