Event description

Description

Geckoes Wildlife offers a photographic workshop venue in a natural bush setting and a range of wildlife subject matter. See www.geckoeswildlife.com.au

Geckoes Wildlife has been in operation for over 15 years. They regularly supply animals for Steve Parish and a number of other wildlife photographers and camera clubs. Commercial photographers also conduct workshops here.

You will have access to a range of wildlife species. Geckoes Wildlife animal handlers will rotate a range of species, sampled from the following list, through the photography location so you have multiple opportunities to capture great images. There will be 2 staff in attendance and a minimum of 3 photo stations operating throughout, with animals rotating every 10-15 minutes or as demand dictates.

The wildlife species include the following: spiny stick insect or some other invertebrate, 2-3 species of frogs, 2-3 species of geckoes such as a leaf tail or knob tail gecko, a legless lizard, 2-3 species of dragons such as Boyds rainforest dragon, frillneck, a skink such as a shingleback or cunninghams skink, a goanna, a crocodile, various pythons such as green, jungle, woma etc. a tree snake, two birds, usually a tawny frogmouth and another owl, 2-3 mammals, usually a glider, possum and bettong. Some of these are virtually impossible to photograph in the wild.

Camera Gear to bring: Camera Body and lenses (macro if you have one but not essential), off-camera flash unit(s) if you have it, camera batteries, memory cards, tripod.

Cost: $65 per person. This is extremely good value (commercial operators usually charge around $250 for a three-hour workshop at this venue). There will be a maximum of 10 participants so everyone gets lots of opportunities for great images.
