Joanne Williams Photography Tours and Safaris

Joanne Williams Photo Tours and Safaris have led both novice and experienced photo enthusiasts into some of the most exotic and breathtaking locations in the world. From the wilds of an African photo safari to the pristine Islands of the Galapagos, along with many other exciting and adventurous photo destinations, Joanne has personally taken her clients to places most people only dream about.

Unlike other photo tour companies, Joanne Williams has prided herself on specializing in small tour groups that she personally leads. With this one-on-one personalized approach, Joanne is able to share her wealth of knowledge in a small group setting.

The Madagascar photo tour takes place on one of the most mysterious islands in the world. The wildlife that dwells here is so unique, that much of it exists nowhere else on earth. Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island, and home to more than 10,000 native plants, of which, 90% are found nowhere else on earth. The photographic opportunities here are truly abundant, and give you plenty of chances at those once in a lifetime shots!

The photographic tour in Ecuador takes us to the beautiful Napo Wildlife Center Reserve located in the Yasuni National Park. We will cruise the river in large canopy covered canoes and then we’ll be paddled to the entrance of the NWC Reserve in dugout canoes, photographing all the rainforest critters along the way. There is some extraordinary wildlife that calls this 82 square mile reserve home, and the proceeds from this lodge go directly to its conservation! Perch yourself atop the 12-story canopy tower built into a towering Ceiba tree and enjoy the views normally reserved for the birds and monkeys of this tropical paradise.

Your “Florida Adventures” (as well as all her tours) are conducted soley by professional wildlife and nature photographer, Joanne Williams , who will share with you her many years of experience and tips on the how-tos of ‘in-the-field’ photography capturing images of the Florida Flora & Fauna as well as beautiful scenics not often seen by the average photographer, tourist, birder or hobbyist.  Some of the trips will be ½ day, full-day, over-night and/or three to four day adventures.  Some will be aboard her 25 foot pontoon boat, or her uniquely customized-by-joanne Fotoboat.  There is a series of special tours coming up called A Stoll With A Pro” that are personally guided morning and/or afternoon walking photo experiences through such areas as Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge, Green Cay Wetlands, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Alligator Farm, Gatorland, Viera Wetlands, Merritt Island, and a couple of the local zoos, gardens, Butterfly World.  All are wonderful opportunities to learn and practice your Macro photography skills, as well as use your bigger lenses.


The Fotoboat Experience:

The tours on your Fotoboat Adventures are unique experiences into locations not often reached by photographers, especially when it is aboard the highly-customized-by-joanne-FOTOBOAT.  This little craft with it’s four strategically-placed, heavy-duty Gitzo monopods--each one mounted with its own Wimberley ball head rig--, can sneak into “skinny-waters” drawing as little as 6” of water.  The unique ability of the Fotoboat allows us access to nesting, feeding, courting & mating behaviors of many of Florida’s birds, such as the elusive Snail Kites, Wood Storks, Eagles, as well as being up close and personal to many of the wading species like Limpkins, Sandhill Cranes, Skimmers, and Stilts .  Otters, raccoons, deer and other mammals often come into our lens’s view while feeding, or bathing at the waters’ edge.  Roseate spoonbills nest in mangroves and low-growing trees along shallow waters and are easily accessible as the boat’s electric motor silently sneaks up on them.
