What camera and equipment do I need?
A digital camera is a necessity, as well as empty memory cards and charged space batteries. It is also useful to bring along your tripod if you have one. You can use any DSLR, bridge or mirrorless camera, however if you are unsure about the suitability of your camera please don’t hesitate to check with Alex on email@example.com. You’ll also be learning lots of helpful hints and tops throughout the day so remember to bring a pen and paper.
All participants must be over the age of 18, unless accompanied by an adult.
What is included?
The cost includes the workshop, entry to Twycross Zoo as well as a complimentary hot drink upon arrival. Further refreshments and food throughout the day will need to be purchased so we recommend bringing some money or a packed lunch.
How big are the groups?
There are six places on each workshop. This allows Alex to provide one-on-one assistance with each student.
What if the weather is bad?
No matter what the weather, we will ensure the workshop will go ahead, with the utilisation of indoor and outdoor enclosures used appropriately. It is important to dress appropriately and make sure your kit is protected.
