Photo Safari and Workshop

Expand your knowledge of wildlife photography at this special Photo Safari and Workshop. Led by Tom Maddrey, photographer, educator and founder of the Eclipse Photography Institute, and Cathy Burkey, staff photographer for the Dallas Zoological Society, the event begins with a guided tour, leading participants to animal habitats that offer the best opportunities for photographers.

After lunch, Maddrey and Burkey will provide practical tips for making your next wildlife session as productive as possible, covering the equipment and gear that can help make it happen.

During the workshop, participants review the pictures taken and discuss what makes a “stunning” image. Color, design, composition, light, shadow, nuance, and tone will be covered, all in the search for those images that move people emotionally as well as intellectually. Students will learn the differences between portraits and behavior shots, how to set up for a great image, ethical considerations, and much more. Finally, an in-depth question-and-answer discussion will address types of photography, workflow, printing, and more.

Sign up today for this fun workshop and learn what it takes to create stunning images of nature and wildlife.
