The Best and the Beautiful 2017-18

Speaker: Presentation by Photo Club

Tampa Audubon Club's May meeting is the Photo Club's "Big Show." This is the meeting where members share their favorite wildlife pictures. Any and all members (pros to beginner and not limited to photo club members) are encouraged to participate by bringing a USB memory drive with between five to ten pictures. A silent fund raising auction will also be provided for those who would like to donate wildlife prints. This is a special and very popular meeting which has been both interesting and a lot of fun for all who attend. Joel Jackson will be the facilitator and ask that interested members contact him at joel.jackson@tampaaudubon.org if they have questions. Visit the Photo Club page for more information about us.

Ethical Nature Photography Standards

If a bird stops its normal behavior as a result of a photographer's activity, the photographer is intruding and should slowly move away.

The Tampa Audubon Society (TAS) and the TAS Camera Club promote Ethical Nature Photography Standards (click here for a copy). Every nature photographer must exercise good individual judgment. All who practice nature photography in Hillsborough County should promote good stewardship of the resource.
