Do you love animals and photography? Capturing great images and clips of animals requires a combination of an understanding of photography and an anticipation and knowledge of animals and their behaviour.
In this workshop you will learn specialised animal photography methods and tips from qualified Keeper and our in-house photographer Rochelle Walton. Take the opportunity to finesse and improve your skills while getting up close and personal to the many extraordinary animals at the Macadamia Castle.
This workshop covers methods to capture the trickiest of creatures. It is perfect for those with an interest in photography who are looking for the opportunity to further develop their skills using the guidance and knowledge of a trained animal handler and photographer while having special access to a range of different species.
One of the highlights of this workshop at our Animal Park is that is provides plenty of diversity with our subjects and settings allowing for experimentation. Rochelle can also provide access to areas and animals not normally accessible by the public
The day begins with a discussion in our conference room to understand every persons wish list. We then explore the Animal Park where participants can implement strategies and take guidance from Nicolle, participate in practical experimentation and take the opportunity to capture still images and clips of a variety of animals.
Participants should bring along their camera, phone or tablet and charger.
Suitable for 10 years and over.
A $25 deposit will be charged at the time of booking and on the day of the workshop participants can present their Creative Kids voucher or pay the $100 balance.
Time: 10am to-3pm course time (participants are welcome to stay in the Animal Park until close a 5pm). Includes lunch, a digital print and Certificate of Completion.
Each student will be required to provide the Castle with three of their best shots from the day for us to share on our Facebook page. The photos taken on the day may be used by the photographer for any not for profit use. They may not be used for any commercial purpose
