Do you want to take images of rarely photographed species? Do you like those wide-angle, “animal in its habitat” shots that are impossible to get with telephoto lenses? This eight day SLR camera trap photography workshop will provide hands on experience in using SLR camera traps to obtain these unique photographs. I have used SLR camera traps for over fifteen years, all over the world, to create prize-winning images of rare species like pumas, fishing cats, and snow leopards.
All SLR camera trap equipment will be provided for you. Please feel free to bring your own SLR camera and lenses as there will be lots of wildlife to photograph during the workshop. If you would like to bring your own SLR camera trap to the workshop, please feel free to do so. If you want to build your own camera trap before the workshop begins and have questions, please reach out to me.
