Learn how to photograph lions and other rhinos, meerkats and other wild animals on a photographic safari

Have you ever flipped through the pages of National Geographic or seen a wildlife documentary photography exhibition and wondered how the photographer managed to capture such incredible footage? Now you can learn how to do it yourself, with a tailor-made safari and photography class – and the animals are at a safe distance in the gorgeous surrounds of Werribee Open Range Zoo.

The five-hour class is aimed at beginner and intermediate level photographers and will cover things like shutter speed; aperture; ISO; different types of metering; how to deal with hard, soft or dappled light; background; composition; exposure compensation; and three-camera set-ups for wildlife photography.

You should bring your DSLR or mirrorless camera; a fully charged battery; lenses (long ones if you have them; memory cards; an instruction manual for your camera; water, hat and snacks; and a monopod if you have one.

After an introductory class, there will be a safari trip through the zoo's African plains to practise what you've learnt. You'll be able to photograph rhinos, hippos, giraffes, meerkats, antelope and the zoo's other exotic residents.
