A chance to photograph a variety of Reptiles, Frogs and other animals close up and personal. This day will see you photographing a mixed variety of Geckos, Lizards, Frogs, Snakes and other creatures close up and personal in our purpose built and fully equipped photography room. During the Workshop we will use a variety of props and sets to ensure variety in your images, and you are welcome to bring your own should you wish to do so (subject to being suitable for use with the animals).

Full Day Weekend Public Days: Your day will start at 10 AM with a quick safety talk followed by photographing each animal in turn on a variety of props. There will be a 1 hour lunch break at 12 Midday and we will resume photography at 1 PM ending at 3 PM.

What you will need: You will need a camera that can be used in manual exposure mode where you can set the Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture on the camera. Most DSLR cameras and Mirrorless System Cameras can do this and you will be expected to know how to change these settings. You will need plenty of battery power and memory cards. Best lenses are something like a 70 – 300 mm zoom and maybe a Macro lens if you want to shoot detail close-ups.

What we supply: We supply all the animals, props, all the lighting equipment including triggers as well as any other equipment that we might use during the session. Tea, Coffee and snacks are available from the Liberty’s Cafe as well as toilet facilities in the Centre. Ample free parking available.
