Zoo Photography Workshops


Marli the baby Ring-tailed Lemur at Call Of The Wild Zoo, South Woodham Ferrers, Essex

Join me for a practical photography workshop at Call of the Wild Zoo in South Woodham Ferrers, where we meet all sorts of animals, from butterflies to lemurs, lizards to vultures!

Throughout the day, we explore different areas of this small zoo, including the tropical house with its butterflies, lizards, and the wonderful Digby, who's an armadillo, the small mammal area, with meerkats, lemurs, and servals, and the birds of prey, where we might meet owls, hawks, or vultures!

Workshop Checklist
  • Maximum of 8 participants.

  • Nearly 5 hours of photography.

  • Group and individual tuition.

  • Exclusive access to some animals.

  • Just £95 per person.

This is a 100% practical photography workshop, structured to give us the maximum time with the animals. The day will consist of a brief introduction, followed by a full day of practical photography in the Zoo, with exclusive time spent with the Lemurs, Servals, birds of prey, and a selection of animals in the Tropical House. Everyone gets some 1-2-1 time to address any issues, concerns, or subjects specific to them.

Throughout the day I will provide guidance on how best to set your camera up, discussing angles to shoot from, composition ideas, and anything else you need help with. As we'll be shooting both in and outdoors, there will be lots to take in regarding settings, using the correct ISOs, white balance and so on, and we'll also cover focusing modes and how to control focus points, especially useful for those tricky flight shots!

The various areas of the zoo allow us to carry on shooting should the weather not be in our favour. There will be a maximum of eight participants on these workshops, so everyone will have plenty of 1-2-1 time with me, and as usual I will not be racing off at the end of the session, so if you wish to stay on to chat or discuss any part of the day, that won't be a problem at all.
