Deep dive into the stunning images in the 2021 Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year, a South Australian Museum exhibition and then settle into our studio with award-winning nature photographer Angela Roberston-Buchanan.

In this digital photography workshop for beginners, unlock your camera’s potential and learn simple but creative shooting techniques. Learn how to get the most out of your equipment’s modes, aperture, ISO and shutter speed. Then, guided by Angela, you will photograph a variety of set-ups featuring live animals (birds, lizards, frogs, possums and perhaps a snake and crocodile), as well as taxidermy and fossil specimens from the Museum’s world-renowned collections.

Limited capacity of 15 people per workshop to allow for individual attention and feedback.



Inclusions:

  • Guided exhibition tour
  • Workshop tutorial
  • Live animal photography session.

Please bring your own DSLR camera and memory card on the day.
