Florida Macro & Nature Photography

Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my website. My name is John Koerner, and I am an author and professional photographer specializing in Florida nature photography, with a particular emphasis on macro photography. We have all seen beautiful sunsets and landscapes (and we all admire them!), but what I try to capture is the kind of beauty most people don't see--and that is the beauty of "the little things" in life: such as tiny insects, spiders, and even fungi!
Most people do not bother to consider such things "beautiful," and yet when you look at them up-close through a macro lens, the little creatures of our world are as exquisite and beautiful as the most compelling sunsets, and this is what I try to convey with my photography :)
Of course, I enjoy capturing the beauty of flowers, sunsets, and landscapes as well--but what I primarily focus on are the tiny creatures of our world. Regardless of what subject I am trying to capture, there simply is no greater joy for me than getting out into nature and trying to preserve the beauty I see with my camera. Even though I am an author and enjoy writing as well, I realize the truth in the age-old adage, "A picture's worth a thousand words." Well, I have taken thousands of pictures, and so what I hope to convey to you are the thoughts, feelings, and exquisite beauty of Florida's wildlife through my photography that transcend mere words. It is my belief that truly compelling nature photography captures what cannot quite be put into words.
As I hike and travel through Florida's untamed wilderness, when I am fortunate enough to have another magic opportunity to capture that perfect subject, displayed in perfect lighting, I try to preserve that moment forever. Though I have thousands of images, I have hand-selected some of them to offer for sale to the public through various media. While my efforts at completing my books are still ongoing, I do have a series of Nature Calendars available, and I also offer my images as Fine Art Prints, for those who would like to display the beauty the Florida has to offer permanently. The inks, papers, and display materials I use for my prints are all museum-grade, and are rated to last over 100 years.
Whether in calendar form, or as fine art prints, these images can be purchased to enhance your home or office—or they can be licensed for use in nature books, your own calendars, or for other forms of publication. For the particulars of your own unique needs or desires in obtaining the perfect Florida nature photograph, please email me to discuss how I can best serve you.
You are also welcome just to browse this site and simply enjoy the photos :)
