Your day starts by learning how to take great wildlife photos at the Walkabout Creek Wildlife Centre, including an assortment of birds in the rainforest aviary, Pretty-faced Wallabies with their joeys and other native wildlife. 

Mark will start off with a session detailing correct camera settings and the best techniques for optimising exposure and focus. If you are not familiar with Back Button Focus all will be revealed and your cameras set up.

After lunch when we will relocate to a private wildlife breeder’s premises at Closeburn.

The day's tuition so far will prepare you for the highlight of the day, a 3 hour session photographing rare and unusual wildlife.

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