Over the last few years, we have seen that there is an increasing interest in photographing primates. On our new Primates Photography workshop, participants can observe and photograph the wide variety of primates at Colchester Zoo, including apes, monkeys, macaques and lemurs.

Although there are seasonal differences in their behaviour there will always be some action with the different types of primates. Our customers will be able to learn how to get photos, through observing the behaviour and anticipating potential photo opportunities. Throughout the photography workshop, participants will have access to advice on any photography aspects and help with the settings on their camera.

Additionally, our customers have the option to have a 30-minutes online photography tuition session before the photography workshop. Through this, participants will get one-to-one tuition on a level, they require The session could cover anything from an introduction to the exposure and focus settings to refreshing previously gained knowledge and more.

The Primates Photography workshops will start at 9:30am and will finish at 3:30pm.

The maximum number of participants on our Primates Photography workshops is limited to 4 photographers per event (minimum of 2 people). The small group size will benefit our customers in respect of getting good positions around the enclosures and having easy access to one to-one support when needed.

As this is a new photography workshop, the price will be only £129 per participants for booking until 14 March 2023. The price will increase in line with our other photography workshops at Colchester Zoo to £134 per participant from 15 March 2023 onwards.
