Zoo Wildlife Photography skills with Paul McDougall

Wildife Photography at 5 Sisters Zoo

with Paul McDougall

Outline of workshop

I have a love hate relationship with Zoos, to the point I will only visit those that demonstrate strong conservation and educational principles.

With over 160 different species from around the world, Five Sisters Zoo is the perfect place to take a “walk on the wild side”. 5 Sisters Zoo opened in 2005 and is situated just 25 minutes west of Edinburgh. The zoo is at the heart of rehabilitation and conservation and has many animals that have been rescued from captivity and hardship.

The day will be spent walking around the zoo. We will attempt to capture the various species looking as natural as possible.

Duration: 6 hours.
Equipment Needed DSL Camera
Price: £150 per person including zoo entry and lunch. Discounts for more than one participant.
