Cameras and Shells

Cameras and Shells

Learning from other people is something I relish about my profession. I enjoyed the company of Larry and Pam on a recent outing. Larry was a wealth of knowledge about photography and cameras. (thank you for letting me shoot with your camera) I learned a lot about the next camera I plan on purchasing.  Pam enjoyed shooting with her camera as well as shelling on the beach.  Thank you both for an educational camera experience on the water.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.

    What a beautiful day for photography. I love the picture of the "freshly caught fish" being flown back to the nest. They found lovely shells, too, especially the gaudy nautica, the tulip, and awesome wormie.

    Oh how I would love to be shelling on that little sandbar-island! Hope one pops up for us in May. Gorgeous pictures!
