Join The Photo Academy on this one of a kind Wildlife Photography training experience.
The course is broken into 3 different sessions:
Session 1 – Theory
We meet the week before the practical and run through the basic principles behind wildlife photography such as ethics, gear and photographic techniques used. This entire session is dedicated to preparations for the following practical session.
- Theory Session
- Course Notes
Session 2 – Practical
Our practical session takes place at the Big 5 Dinokeng Game Reserve just North of Pretoria. We arrive well before sunrise for a game drive where each photographer is guaranteed a “window seat” as we only accommodate 6 persons per game viewer. Knowledgeable guides, trackers and photographic instructors are always close at hand to assist with any questions.
The rest of the day is filled with reviews, discussions on good photographic techniques and a great lunch before an evening game drive with the sun setting over the African bushveld.
- Guided Game Drive – Morning
- Review Sessions
- Technique Sessions
- Refreshments and Snacks
- Guided Game Drive – Evening
Session 3 – Review
A few days after the great practical session we head back to the classroom for a review session where images from all participants receive constructive critiquing and analysis from our professional instructors.
