Cover Artist... Arthur "artie" Morris

      We are thrilled to have world renowned bird and nature photographer, instructor and writer Arthur “artie” Morris as our cover artist for this special issue of High Tide St. Simons. Artie is widely heralded as one of the premier bird photographers and educators on the planet. Many of the current crop of top bird photographers have learned from his books and videos, his educational blog, or attended one or more Instructional Photo-Tours (IPTs). 

      More than 20,000 of Artie’s images, seen above his most-fitting credit line, — BIRDS AS ART,  have been published in American Birds, Audubon, Birding, Birder’s World, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Duck’s Unlimited, Florida Wildlife and Nature, Living Bird, National Geographic, Natural History, Outdoor Photographer and numerous other magazines as well as in hundreds of books and calendars. Artie has also published several books including The Art of Bird Photography  (ABP) and the digital follow-up, ABP II (on CD only). 

      Artie’s blog at offers free lessons pretty much every other day along with links to an impressive gallery of his work, the BAA Online Store,  a slew of books and CDs,  Fine-Art Prints  and the hugely popular Used Photo Gear  page.  For the photographic experience of a lifetime, check out artie’s Instructional Photo-Tours  He returned from a trip to Homer, Alaska where he led two hugely successful IPTs.  He traveled by boat with small groups of photographers to Kachemak Bay to photograph Bald Eagles for 15 of 16 days with only a single day of rest. 

      Artie is currently living his dream, traveling the world to enjoy his two great passions: creating memorable images and teaching others to do the same. Healthy at age 73, he feels that he is amazingly blessed to continue to travel, teach, and speak extensively.
