photo of Jean Hall with parrotJean Hall has lived in Naples since 1997, when she fell in love with the stunning natural world of SW Florida. Her constant trips across the Everglades to work out of Miami International Airport taught her about the cycles of the bird population. She was a flight attendant for 38 years and just recently retired. Jean also worked for 17 years as a personal assistant to an ABC Sports broadcaster which led her to be hired by NBC Sports for 5 Olympics in sports production. She is a two time Emmy Award winner from that work, and has traveled the world extensively seeking opportunities for great nature photography. Although she doesn’t consider herself an expert in the field of photography, she is happy to share any tips and instruction that has helped her capture the beauty of Florida. Her mission is to guide you to great shots and to share the incredible natural world of SW Florida.

Jean’s photography has been featured on Audubon.org ( North American Bird Guide) and in several papers in the Naples/ Marco Island area. She serves as an Audubon Shorebird Steward as well as a volunteer maintaining the Burrowing Owl population on Marco Island. Jean is also certified as a Florida Master Naturalist by UF IFAS.

Every tour client will have a window seat since some of the wildlife photo opportunities occur from the “blind” of the vehicle. We operate our tours during the most reliable seasons for wildlife photography, but private bookings are available throughout the year by contacting us directly.

Epic Florida Photo Tours strongly believes in the conservation efforts and ethical wildlife photography guidelines of the Florida Shorebird Alliance.
