Geoff Coe: "Born in the Philadelphia area, I attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA and did graduate work in earth sciences at the Johns Hopkins University before leaving to pursue photography and writing as a career. I spent many years as a wedding and commercial photographer in Washington, DC. When I moved to SW Florida in 2004 I took up flatwater kayaking and quickly found that it was an excellent way to observe birds in their natural habitats. The more I paddled, the more I found myself fascinated by their behavior as well as their beauty. Somewhat against the advice of my insurance agent, I began taking my Canon digital SLR and telephoto zoom lens with me on kayak trips.

I began exhibiting at Florida outdoor festivals in early 2008. I also spend at least part of each summer shooting and exhibiting along the coastlines of the Northeast. I also teach half-day and full-day workshops on request. When not shooting nature, I love photographing musicians (I was the photography coordinator for Jazz on the Green, SW Florida's benefit concert for Children's Hospital, for five years), sports, and public service events. All of my photographs are made using Canon digital SLRs and lenses. I often use a lightweight Gitzo carbon fiber tripod equipped with a Mongoose M3.5 tripod head for my 500mm and telephoto zoom lenses."
