Part one of this workshop begins with an online educational seminar on Thursday, February 22nd. Photographing animals at the Zoo in the Winter offers some unique challenges and perspectives.

Whether you are new to animal photography or a seasoned enthusiast, this is a workshop for you! The seminar will roughly cover the first hour, and we will wrap up with a Q&A portion at the end—be sure to bring your questions!



Part two of the workshop is on Saturday, February 24th, at the Minnesota Zoo. This is where you will put what you’ve learned from the online seminar into practice! Click here to learn more about the Live Event.



Workshop attendees are encouraged to submit images they took at the zoo for the online image review on Tuesday, February 27th. This is an opportunity to share your unique visual perspectives, and how that may differ from person to person. Click here to learn more about the Online Image Review.
