    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. 

    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.

    You'll be shooting in lovely rainforest environment utilising a number of natural displays where, you'll get to shoot all manner of snakes, lizards, birds and mammals. We'll have strobes, soft-boxes and LED lighting on hand to help you achieve amazing images. The lighting equipment provided is fully compatible with any DSLR or mirrorless camera. We'll have you up to speed shooting with outdoor studio lighting in no time.
