Introduction to Nature and Wildlife Photography
Three dates for summer 2020 workshops: June 19-21, August 28-30, and October 2-4
This workshop is aimed at those who consider themselves beginner photographers, whether you’ve just picked up a DSLR camera or you’re looking to expand your skills beyond the automatic mode. Immerse yourself in beautiful Algonquin Provincial Park for the weekend as you learn how to use your camera to create compelling nature and wildlife images with photographer Samantha Stephens. At the end of the workshop you’ll have a basic understanding of photography gear, exposure and composition.
The cost of this workshop is $450, which includes two-nights of accommodation and all meals at the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station.
