John and Kendra Abbott

John and Kendra are professional nature photographers, educators and outdoor enthusiasts based in Tuscaloosa, AL. John has focused on dragonflies and damselflies throughout much of his career and has written three books on these beautiful subjects that contain much of our photography. Kendra is an ecologist and focused on endangered species and conservation issues much of her career.

Among the many projects John and Kendra are currently working on, they are revising the Peterson Field Guide to Insects of North America and writing a field guide to the Common Insects of Texas. They have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Latin America, Africa and other parts of the world where they enjoy taking photos of pretty much anything in the natural world. They feel lucky enough to be able to teach and excite others about the amazing biodiversity they have been able to observe through their travels and photography together.

John and Kendra regularly teach photography workshops and are available for private classes and one-on-one training. We also do nature outreach events and other programs for adults and children.
