This hands-on workshop, featuring live animal models, will guide you through the basics of wildlife and nature photography.

Start with a 30-minute viewing of the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year exhibition and then settle in with an experienced photographer and educator.

Learn how to unlock your camera’s potential with simple but creative shooting techniques and find out how to get the most out of your equipment by mastering camera modes, aperture, ISO and shutter speed. Then put your new skills to the test in an hour’s shoot of live subjects including birds, lizards, phasmids, frogs and possums with possible cameo appearances by a python and baby crocodile.

Please bring your own DSLR camera along on the day.

Limited capacity of 15 people per workshop – book early to avoid disappointment!
