Well actually every season is photography season but spring brings about the first of many photography days and workshops that we will be running at Knowsley Safari Park in conjunction with Martin Birchall and Wild Arena.
The first session will be a half day workshop on 11th April with Martin Birchall to help improve camera skills and is a great session for any level of photographer from those with a top of the range Canon to those with a camera on their phone. These sessions are all about getting the best shot with what you have and will cover topics from lighting and composition to depth of field and angles. These sessions are based in the walkaround area of the park but after your half day photography session you will still have access to the rest of the park if you want to practice your new skills. If you can’t make it to the session in April there are plenty more throughout the year and all are bookable through the Knowsley Safari Park store online.
Also in April, the 22nd and 23rd, we have the Wild Arena photography days. These are full days at the park giving you greater access to some of the animal enclosures to allow you to get that perfect shot. You will have a driver and a guide for the day to get you into all the best locations around the park and a member of the Wild Arena team will be on hand to give you any tips, technical help or instruction you may need. As with Martin’s sessions you don’t need a top of the range camera for these sessions, if you have a compact camera and just enjoy taking photos this will still be a great day and with friendly, helpful staff around you will be sure to take a camera full of great shots home with you. The Wild Arena days are very popular and already the first two dates are booked up with a waiting list for any cancelations but there are still places available on other dates through the year so book now on the Wild Arena website.
Knowsley Safari Park is a great venue for photography of any level and you will not be stuck for subject matter, you might even need to bring your spare memory card. So next time you visit bring a camera and have fun.
