The Bird Photography Workshop with Andrew Goodall is a fantastic way to practice your skills – and learn some new ones – while working with some amazing and colourful characters.
The workshop is held in two parts over one day. In the morning we meet at Parrots in Paradise at Glasshouse Mountains, where you will practice photographing birds at close quarters. Some of the best subjects are brought outside the aviary to provide more natural settings – you are going to love George the Gang-Gang Cockatoo! This morning session is a great way for Andrew to see how you are going with the basics and offer some special tips on focus, exposure and more to produce sharper, better quality photos. Then in the afternoon we head to Caloundra where Andrew explains the settings and techniques to prepare you for a whole new challenge…photographing birds in flight. Photographing moving subjects requires very different camera settings so the practical skills you learn here will take your wildlife photography to a new level.
The Bird Photography Workshop is fun. It is hands-on with a little theory and plenty of time to practice and you are sure to take home a great collection of new photos. It’s also great value, and note that your workshop fee includes your entry to Parrots in Paradise, where every dollar received goes into caring for the birds.
This is an intermediate workshop, suitable for people with some experience who want to take their skills further. It was originally designed for people who have done Andrew’s Photography Essentials workshop but now it is open for everyone. But please note: it is not designed to teach first principles of DSLR photography, so if things like shutter speed, aperture and ISO are a mystery, you should consider doing a Photography Essentials workshop first.
DSLR and Mirrorless DSLR cameras are welcome, and you will need a suitable telephoto lens…standard 250mm and 300mm lenses are fine, and if you have anything stronger – great, bring it along!
