Liberty’s “Reptiles Plus” Photography Workshop

This is an amazing opportunity to photograph a colourful selection of Frogs, Geckos, Lizards and more from very close up with no glass or wire to get in the way between you and your subject. During your day you will have various frogs, reptiles and invertebrates placed on a table top set in front of you for you to photograph in comfortable indoor surroundings. An experienced photographer will be on hand to assist you should you require any pointers to get the most from your day. A great day for beginners or experienced photographer alike.

The Morning group session runs from 10.00AM to 12.30PM
The Afternoon group session runs from 1.30PM until 4.00PM
