  • Granite Belt Cunningham’s Skink
  • West Aus. Gold Fields Shingleback
  • Central netted Dragon
  • Woma Python
  • Brown Tree Snake (Night Tiger)

Join Mark as he instructs you on the best techniques to photograph an amazing lineup of wildlife.

Some of the species are virtually impossible to photograph in the wild, so this is a chance you will not want to miss.

You will have an exclusive opportunity to photograph tame native wildlife at a private breeder’s collection.  Some of the native wildlife species that we will photograph (depending on availability on the day) include:
  • Leaf-tailed Gecko and Knob-tailed Gecko
  • Bearded Dragon, Southern Angle-headed Dragon, Water Dragon and Boyd’s Rainforest Dragon
  • Pink-tongue Skink, Blue-tongue Skink and Shingleback Lizard
  • Carpet Python, Diamond Python and Brown Tree Snake
  • Magnificent Tree Frog, Gold Tree Frog, Green Tree Frog, White-lipped Tree Frog and Burrowing Desert Frog
  • Various other reptiles

Mark will give professional photographic tuition throughout the workshop. He will teach you how to take better photos as well as getting the most out of your camera.
