The workshop will be largely based on practical experience that will suit all skill levels. Discussions and assistance on specialized topics such as the following will take place:
- Different lens techniques

- Motion techniques
- Discussions on Adobe “Creative Cloud” Light Room vs Photoshop

Why take part in this workshop?
The wildlife photography workshop gives you the chance to work in a beautiful wildlife setting, whilst fine-tuning your skills in a friendly environment. Techniques will be discussed, demonstrated, and put into practice throughout the workshop.
All will work closely together, sharing your knowledge and experience. You will also get the time to relax in our luxury accommodation and get spoiled with our hearty food. Depending on the moon activity, you will also get the chance to learn more about Milky Way Photography under the guidance of our Professional photographer.
The workshop will be aimed at helping the beginner, novice and semiprofessional.
The workshop will be facilitated by a Professional Wildlife Photographer. It is about shooting – lots of shooting. Because of the unique location and the luxury accommodations, this workshop adventure is open to spouses as well as photographers. Even non-photographers will find the locales visited and the wildlife viewing opportunities to be thrilling. The cost for non-photographers is the same as for active participants.
