It's a great opportunity for anyone who loves the fauna of our planet and wants to learn the skills of wildlife photography and how to shoot both macro (close -up) and with telephotos (long lenses). Gain first-hand experience with all cameras. Learn how to shoot a large variety of flora, fauna, & bird photography. The perfect workshop for travellers and those wishing to build a nature photography portfolio and improve their technique. It is suitable for anyone at any skill level.

We practice general camera handling, use of long focal length zoom lenses, manipulation of depth of field, shutter speed to freeze or blur movement, composition and lighting techniques.

Perth Zoo is one of the world's leading conservation zoos, supporting local, regional and international projects designed to conserve species in the wild. Perth Zoo features one of Australia's finest collection of native animals and a diverse collection of exotic species. It is a 41-acre zoo that opened in 1898 in South Perth. It is home to 1258 animals of 164 species and includes an extensive botanical collection.

The zoo has three main zones - Australian Walkabout, Asian Rainforest and African Savannah - with a few minor exhibit areas (Lesser Primates, South American birds, Main Lake, Galapagos Tortoises). All exhibits are designed to mimic the animals' natural habitats and utilise passive barriers where possible.
