Photography Workshops

Photography Workshops 

Our photography workshops are a great opportunity to perfect your snapping skills!

If you want to learn to take better photographs, understand your camera better or want to take photos on that once in a lifetime trip! Our workshops are a must for all amateur wildlife photographers. Run by professional photographer Dave Stevenson, our day long workshops combine a tutorial session and two incredible locations to practice in! 

Your experience

  • General workshops will teach you more about the technical side of photography and start to look at the fundamentals of composition, leaving you with the knowledge to keep your photography moving forwards.
  • Advanced workshops explore composition and how to approach the art of photography, with a view to telling incredible stories through taking more unusual, creative and impactful photographs.

What to expect on the day

The session starts at 10:30am with hot drinks and the tutorial session, after this it’s time to head out into the zoo to explore and try out the tips from Dave! The experience runs until 4:30pm.  

There will be a maximum of ten people taking part in the workshop, giving you lots of time to explore and get those perfect pictures!

Tip: You will have plenty of opportunity to take some fantastic photographs so don’t forget to bring a spare battery and memory card!

What we've done to keep you safe on our experience...

Our Photography Workshops have been adapted to ensure that you don’t miss out on our usual experience whilst keeping everyone safe. This includes moving our tutorial session to a larger room to accommodate everyone whilst allowing for social distancing, following the one-way systems around the Zoo, and offering no-contact feedback on photographs that you take during your workshop. We also have hand sanitiser available throughout the experience and encourage participants to wash their hands regularly.
