On this workshop you will learn the skills required to take photographs of native and exotic animals in a controlled environment, giving you photos that appear to have been shot 'in the wild'. It's a great opportunity for anyone who loves the fauna of our planet and wants to learn the skills of wildlife photography and how to shoot both macro (close -up) and with telephotos (long lenses). Gain first-hand experience with all cameras.

Learn how to shoot a large variety of flora, fauna, & bird photography. The perfect workshop for travellers and those wishing to build a nature photography portfolio and improve their technique. It is suitable for anyone at any skill level.

Learn how to utilize the operation of your DLSR, mirrorless or compact digital camera in order to get fantastic photographs of Australia's finest collection of native animals and a diverse collection of exotic species from around the world. We practice general camera handling, use of long focal length zoom lenses, manipulation of depth of field, shutter speed to freeze or blur movement, composition and lighting techniques.

Perth Zoo is one of the world's leading conservation zoos, supporting local, regional and international projects designed to conserve species in the wild. Perth Zoo features one of Australia's finest collection of native animals and a diverse collection of exotic species. It is a 41-acre zoo that opened in 1898 in South Perth. It is home to 1258 animals of 164 species and includes an extensive botanical collection.

The zoo has three main zones - Australian Walkabout, Asian Rainforest and African Savannah - with a few minor exhibit areas (Lesser Primates, South American birds, Main Lake, Galapagos Tortoises). All exhibits are designed to mimic the animals' natural habitats and utilise passive barriers where possible.

On this workshop, we custom tailor our tuition for those travellers, photographers and wildlife lovers wanting to photograph certain wildlife. For instance may Perth residents want to shoot in the African Savannah section with its African Painted Dogs, African lions, Cheetahs, Grant's Zebras, Hamadryas Baboons, Meerkats, Radiated tortoises, Rothschild's Giraffes, Spotted Hyaenas and Southern White Rhinoceroses.

Refunds
We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule any course, due to inadequate enrollment, bad weather, instructor illness, or an 'act of God'. We also reserve the right to cancel any course if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been cancelled. As our costs for each training event remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. If withdrawal occurs within the 14 days before the course starts we will try to put you on an alternative date if places are available. Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
