What you'll learn in this wildlife photography class:

Learn to capture dynamic photographs of raptors, small birds, and mammals. After an evening classroom session, enjoy a Saturday field session at Willowbrook Wildlife Center, home to fox, bobcat, eagle, sandhill crane, and many more species of local wildlife. A naturalist will give a brief overview of the center and the wildlife that call it home. 

Enjoy the rest of the morning photographing the array of birds and animals (no flash, please). Then return to the classroom on Wednesday for additional instruction and a critique session. By the end of this class, you will:

  • Know which camera settings and lenses will capture the best images of wildlife.
  • Be able to focus and compose photographs for stationary and moving wildlife.
  • Know the best time of day to photograph wildlife.

Notes:

  • Held indoors (Wednesday) and outdoors (Saturday). 
  • Bring your fully charged DSLR camera.

School Notes: The registrars office is the one who confirms registrations ([email protected]). They respond to emails Monday through Friday between 8:30 and 4pm. If a student registers through Coursehorse on Friday evening for a Saturday class, we will not have a way to confirm them.
