About This Wildlife Photography Course

Capturing a wildlife photograph is not as easy as it looks. Not only does one need creativity and technical knowledge, but also a knowledge and understanding of one’s subject matter.

We start the course with a discussion on the equipment needed to become a versatile nature photographer and then discuss the various fundamentals that combine to make a good wildlife photograph. Participants will spend mornings and afternoons in the bush looking for photographic opportunities followed by a lecture each day and constructive criticism of any digital photos taken during activities.

Why do the course?

The Wilderness Photography course aims to reveal more of the thought processes behind the making of a good wildlife photograph. The course will give photographers time and opportunity to put these thoughts into action in the field, under the guidance of an experienced wildlife photographer.
