About this course / workshop

This workshop is of particular interest if you love animals and wildlife, or maybe you’re going on a safari or holiday and want to get more familiar with your camera before you go.  Our day starts with a morning session consisting of three hours of essential camera theory where we will guide you through and explain the key features of your camera. You will learn how to control the aperture, shutter speed and ISO for absolute creative control of the camera and discover how to shoot confidently in the manual mode – no more Auto! After a light lunch (included) we begin the afternoon practical session and take a casual walk around the Zoo where there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the different techniques discussed in the morning session and photograph animals as diverse as crocodiles, snakes, koalas, birds, tigers, zebras and more.

What you will learn
Understanding and controlling exposure using the camera manual and priority modes, aperture and shutter speeds, what are they and how do they affect the image, the advantages of using the manual versus auto, focusing modes and selective focusing, understanding lens focal length, depth of field, focus modes, using and understanding ISO, white balance.

What camera do you need
Digital SLR or Mirrorless / micro four thirds cameras are ideal as you will need to use the manual functions of the camera (if you are unsure about the suitability of your camera please contact us). A telephoto zoom lens will also be required.

Tripods are provided on the day if you do not have one.

    I attended the Australia Zoo Workshop recently, and have already completed another Photo Genius workshop. Once again it was a great day – very informative and a perfect venue to get some great shots with lots of guidance along the way from Paul. Paul knows how to make all the technical information understandable and I have a greater confidence in using my camera now. It is a well-planned day with a good balance of essential theory and hours of practice as well as a nice lunch with your small group. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to learn how to better control their camera and get more enjoyment using it.

    Recently did their Australia Zoo experience. Fantastic teaching which moved at a great pace while making sure everyone understood the concepts of photography they were getting across. The small group size allowed for ample time one to one with the instructors to optimize the photography techniques you are applying after the classroom session. The day was great, everything ran smoothly and the lunch was quite tasty. I would highly recommend for anyone starting out in photography or those that only know the basics and want to take more control over there photos.

    I thoroughly enjoyed a recent workshop with Paul and Andrew – this being my second workshop with PhotoGenius and like the first I came away with further confidence in using my camera and a greater understanding of how to snap that perfect shot. The day itself was well planned and faultless. Both Paul and Andrew willingly share their knowledge. I would highly recommend Photo Genius workshops to anyone with a love of photography – novice or not.
