The Park gives the workshop groups exclusive access to photograph their beautiful and well-cared-for animals just as the sun is rising, 3 1/2 hours before the park opens to the public, with staff-only access to habitats. The animals are treated into the best spots within their habitats to capture STUNNING portraits. A large number of the animals are rescues and live a wonderful life at the Park.”
Kathleen Reeder
Workshop Information: The workshop begins Friday evening with Kathleen explaining the basics of capturing extraordinary animal portrait and behavior photos. Kathleen will walk thru optimal camera settings so that you’ll be ready to start photographing the animals.
Saturday morning we begin at the first habitat at sunrise. Transportation is provided throughout the day to get us around the park quickly. The workshop ends at about 2 PM, after which you're welcome to stay in the park until closing.
