learn more about improving their photography..

This workshop is designed to get photographers into the best areas to ‘get the shots’. Here is where you take your wildlife photography from ‘good’ to ‘great’. By learning the tips, techniques and methods of taking great wildlife images with professional photographers, you will gain great insight and knowledge while improving your wildlife photography.
There is a fantastic sunken photographic hide on the reserve, giving the wildlife the opportunity to seek you out. This hide has produced several award winning images. It is perfectly positioned to utilise the light, and because of the low perspective, the backgrounds are incredible. When the Elephants aren’t around many species of mammals and birds use the waterhole, so there is usually something exciting to photograph.
