Wildlife and Nature Photography Masterclass

Photographers are invited to attend an interactive masterclass at the National Wool Museum with Melbourne-based Wildlife Photographer of the Year 52 finalist and photojournalist, Doug Gimesy.

Doug’s image, 'Caring for Joey', was chosen as one of 100 finalists from over 50,000 entries in the world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year 52 competition.

Masterclass participants will develop a better understanding of how to capture memorable wildlife and nature images.

Suitable for adults or older teens, the class will run for 2,5 hours and will be split into 2 parts.

The first part will examine what features and characteristics, beyond a mastery of the technical basics, gives photography in general, then wildlife/nature images real impact.

The second part will be dedicated to review (as a group) at least one image previously provided by each of the ‘active’ participants.

Pre-requisites for ‘Active’ participants:

  • a solid understanding of photography and camera basics
  • experience manipulating aperture and shutter speed on a DSLR
  • supplying two images for review prior to the masterclass (high res jpeg files with no watermarks, less than 2MB. The images will be use for the sole purpose of the masterclass). These should have an image title/name.

‘Observer’participants / Audience members:

  • No prerequisites

Bookings essential and numbers are strictly limited. Doug's photography masterclasses are in high demand so book early!
