From the wilds of Padre Island National Seashore to the glistening sunsets across the bay, Corpus Christi and the Texas Coastal Bend have earned a reputation for their photographic opportunities. Thanks in part to the presence of some of the richest photo contests in the world, including the Coastal Bend Wildlife Photo Contest, and the travelingImages for Conservation Pro Tour of Nature Photography, photographers travel from across the globe to photograph the landscapes, waterscapes, and wildscapes of Corpus Christi.
Many Texas landowners have discovered that nature tourism, specifically Wildlife Photography and Wildlife Watching, is a viable economic means to sustaining and supplementing the private ranch. Realizing that value, several private ranchers around Corpus Christi have built wildlife photo blinds with the nature photographer in mind, taking into account lens requirements and sunlight. Of course there are endless photo ops on public lands as well in our many nature parks; and state parks around South Texas, and in the National Seashore. If you're not confident with the camera, then pack your binoculars to witness some of nature's most wondrous sites in the Corpus Christi area.
