Ever flip through a wildlife magazine and wish your animal pictures could look that good? Planning to come to Photo Day and want some pointers and practice first? Join us as we learn some basics of wildlife photography and take a mini-safari through the Zoo to capture some of our most photogenic animals. This session is for beginners, and a digital or film SLR camera is recommended. Cameras will not be provided.
