Marina Scarr is an award-winning nature photographer and certified Florida Master Naturalist based in Sarasota, Florida. She grew up in New England as an equestrian on a farm full of animals so she has always had a curiosity, love and respect for nature and all of its creatures. Her fascination with birds was spawned when she witnessed an incubator full of duck eggs successfully hatch. Her introduction to photography came just after moving to Florida at 18 when her father gave her a 35mm camera. After enrolling in several classes, her love of nature photography was born and her two passions fused.  Avian and wildlife subjects are her primary focus.  

Although much of her time is spent in the field in pursuit of compelling images, Marina also enjoys swimming, walking, boating, bird-watching and reading. She is an avian moderator on the popular nature photography critique forum at Throughout the year, she finds great joy volunteering “for the birds” with various local rescue/rehab facilities.

Marina has won several awards and her images have been published in National Wildlife, Nature’s Best Photography, Living Bird, Popular Photography, etc. Her images are being used on various websites, Apps and brochures.

Marina offers private and semi-private photography workshops.  Please contact her directly for more information and pricing.  Also please contact her directly concerning purchasing and licensing of any of her images.
