Event description

Description

Have an unforgettable morning at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo learning how to take better photographs of stunning animals and nature and understanding how to get the most out of your camera.

These new photo experience days have evolved from those we have successfully staged for adults over many years and provide an opportunity for younger photographers to take advantage and develop their skills further. Edinburgh zoo provides fantastic opportunities for photographing animals and a selection of these have been chosen upon which to test and demonstrate a range of techniques on the day. With a small group size, and the opportunity to offer one-to-one tuition, we are confident of helping you improve your photography, whatever your level of expertise. Please note that this workshop is for participants ages 12-15 years.

We are privileged that renowned professional photographer Laurie Campbell will be running the workshops. Laurie was actually a keeper at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo before embarking on a highly successful thirty year career as a nature photographer and has now returned as RZSS Nature Photographer in Residence. He has over thirty five years’ experience in leading photographic workshops, has illustrated and authored several books including the bestselling ‘RSPB Guide to Bird & Nature Photography’; and has won twenty-three awards in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. In 2014 he was awarded the RSPB's Lifetime Achievement Award. A selection of his work can be viewed at www.lauriecampbell.com

FAQs

Which animals are involved in the workshops?

We aim to include meerkats, red pandas, rhinos and pygmy hippos. Please note, that we are unable to guarantee any specific animals on the day due to animal welfare issues. If any animals are off-show, we will replace this part of the day with an equivalent opportunity.

Can I bring anyone with me when I’m doing my experience?

Participants must be accompanied by a spectating guardian or adult (maximum one per child). Both the participant and accompanying adult's entry is included within the workshop voucher. After the workshop you are then able to go and explore the rest of the Zoo for the afternoon.
