“Captain Brian Holaway is well versed in the intricacies of our unmatched locale. He can guide to and through a multitude of out-of-the way tidal creeks, bayous, keys and islands. More important is his passionate interest and respect for the region. With unique insights from his many explorations and his studies, not only does he identify the birds and wildlife that inhabit our semi-tropical watery land, but he explains their interconnectedness to their environment and each other. In addition, he shares the fascinating history of rugged people who came long before us: Florida Native Indians, the Calusa, the Spanish, the Cubans, early homesteaders, and the wisdom evident in the growth of their culture.

You will come away with great enjoyment and a new understanding of this beautiful place and its history.”

Capt. Brian Talks At The Ft. Myers Camera Club










Last spring I took out the members of the Ft. Myers camera club. The president of the club asked me to do a talk about what I do on the water. Tonight I  gave a thirty minute PowerPoint  to the club. My daughter was extremely helpful in this project. She helped set up the PowerPoint and sat with me looking at over three thousand photos giving me the nod on which pictures were good and why.( I used 50 pictures in the Power Point) She has a great eye for photography and colors in the natural world. Tonight she was the AV tech and photographer for dad. She did a great job and took all of the above photos with a D300 Nikon manually. The club asked me to do another PowerPoint in January. Looks like it is time to get out there and start taking more photos.
