Event Description

This wildlife workshop is specially designed for Wildlife photography enthusiasts who have either attended our workshop at Ngomo Lodge (Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve) previously, or have at least total confidence to photograph on full manual, aperture, or shutter priorities with their own DSLR cameras and lenses.  In addition, enthusiasts should have their own gear and have a good understanding of their functions and settings.

The workshop will be for a maximum of 6 enthusiasts and run over a course of 4 days at Monate Game Lodge, Limpopo.

Bruna will share her insights, techniques as well as knowledge of animal behaviour  – all of the ingredients of what it takes to be an established wildlife photographer.  

Due to the unpredictability of wildlife photography, we are hesitant to release a set syllabus, however, as opportunities present themselves on the day, Bruna will help each person to master some of the following techniques:

  • Panning/ tracking
  • Fast exposures
  • Shooting in low light
  • Slow exposure shooting
  • Mastering birds in flight
  • Creative use of depth of field
  • Wide and angle creative composition
  • Create uses of exposure compensation

Practical shooting will be held from an open game drive vehicle in a group, each morning and each evening within the perimeters of Monate Private Game Farm. http://www.monatelodge.com/accommodation.php

During the day, the theoretic side of this workshop will be covered in a comfortable conference environment.
