1:1 Photography Workshop - The Big Cat Sanctuary

1:1 Photography Workshop

The amazing opportunity to photograph our cats with expert tuition.


What to expect

On a 1:1 Photography Workshop with a pro-photographer, you can expect to have a prime position within the stand-off area of each enclosure.

No more Auto! You will be advised on camera settings, such as exposure, composition, colour balance, shutter speed, and advice on post-production/editing.

If you wish to work on your portfolio this is the ideal opportunity. All cameras and abilities are welcome. An additional photographer may be added to this 1-1 experience when booking.
