Join experienced adventuring professional travel and bird photography experts Mark Rayner and Dick Jenkin on a bird and nature photography adventure not to be missed.
Dick is passionate about birds and has spent his entire life pursuing countless species all over the globe. More recently, having observed all but three Australian birds, he has decided to revisit his secret places with camera in hand.
Dick is now a full time photographer pursuing this new goal.
Together with his wife Lynn, also a passionate photographer, he is setting about making bird photography more accessible to everyone.
Dick returns to UNI in 2016 to further advance his knowledge by gaining a Post Graduate Diploma in Ornithology.
In short, if there is a bird in the bush, Dick knows what it is and how to find it. His knowledge will be invaluable as we bring you this brand new bird and nature photography workshop in the Hunter Valley region of NSW.
This amazing photography tour workshop is designed to suit the beginner or serious enthusiast.
A digital SLR or mirrorless interchangeable lens camera camera is recommended. Best lenses to bring include a longer zoom or prime. Lenses such as Canon 100-400, Nikon 80-400, Tamron or Sigma 150-600 are ideal as are 400, 500 and 600 primes. 1.4x and 2x teleconverters are also very useful.
A sturdy monopod or tripod is recommended, preferably fitted with a gimbal head. For the reptile and other animal sessions a shorter zoom or macro lens would be ideal.
A standard zoom (24-70) would also be advisable as some landscape opportunities will present. An external flash could be useful in certain circumstances.
Some of the topics that will be covered:
• Bird Photography techniques
• Exposure and metering techniques
• Streamlining your digital workflow and image post-processing techniques
