Reptiles Plus Photography Workshop

This is an amazing opportunity to photograph a colorful 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.

These days run from 09.45AM until 13.30PM and take place at:

Townsend Community Centre, Jewell Road, Townsend, Bournemouth BH8 0LW
(Right next door to the One Stop Convenience Store)

We provide all the studio flash lighting equipment, stands, backgrounds and standard hot shoe triggers (users of Sony cameras that use the old Minolta Flash fitting will need to bring an adapter) as well as a variety of frogs, small reptiles and other creatures for you to photograph in a studio setting.

Public Days are shared between up to a maximum of 9 photographers working on two separate tables as a way of keeping costs down. This gives everyone ample opportunities to get some stunning images of these creatures.
