The Zoo Photography for Junior Explorers is a photography workshop for our youngest customers (aged 6-10 years). This photography workshop offers the children and their guardians to explore photography by taking images of their favourite wildlife species around the zoo. The main focus of the Zoo Photography for Junior Explorers workshop is for the children to learn how to approach taking photos by observing the animals, recognising photo opportunities and looking for the best angles.

On this photography workshop any type of camera from a digital SLR to a compact camera or even a mobile phone could be used. Though saying this, cameras with a longer zoom range will be of benefit. Furthermore, if a digital SLR camera or a bridge camera is available, the children and their guardians will also be able to learn more about technical photography aspects like exposure, focus and other functional settings on the cameras.

As with all our photography experiences, our junior participants will have the option to have a 30-minutes online session prior to the photography workshop at the zoo. This allows us to tailor the tuition to each child’s individual needs.

On the actual photography workshop day, professional wildlife photographer Barbara Meyer will help the children with setting up their cameras and teach them how to approach wildlife photography. Advice on any photographic aspects and how to capture the animal action will be available to the children (and their guardians) throughout the photography workshop.

The Zoo Photography for Junior Explorers workshop will start at 9:30am and will finish at 1:00pm. As with all our photography workshops we limit the number of participants; in this case to 3 children and one guardian each. The small group size benefits our junior participants and their guardians as they will have more easily access to good positions around the enclosures and to one-to-one support when required.
