Zoo Photography For Children


Nafari and Kalabi - Hyenas


We are pleased to announce that Zoo Photography for Children will be back from 2018. Based on the fact that this photography event will need to be at a time when zoos and wildlife parks are at their busiest; weekends and school holidays, the format will however be slightly different.

Zoo Photography for Children will be a half-day workshop
(13:00 until 17:00). After a brief introduction over a hot (or cold) drink, we will go around the zoo and help the children to get interesting images and to improve how to take photos in view of camera settings and also in view of how to approach wildlife photography. There won't be any classroom tuition on this workshop, but the children will have access to one-to-one advice, and if it is of benefit to all, our professional wildlife photographer will explain required aspects to the entire group.

This course will be open to children, aged between 10 and 14 years, and will have no more than 6 participants to ensure all children will be able to take full benefits out of this workshop (minimum number 4 participants).

The price for the Zoo Photography for Children workshop is £124 per child at Colchester Zoo. This will include besides the tuition the entrance fee and a welcome drink for the child and one accompanying guardian.

We agreed the following dates for the Big Cat Photography workshop at Colchester Zoo in 2018:
24 March 2018 (Saturday) - availability > 3 spaces
29 September 2018 (Saturday) - availability > 3 spaces
