Wildlife Photography at Triple D
$2,999 (CPS Discount $100)
Have you tried photographing North American wildlife or exotic African and Asian animals but found it frustrating because capturing dramatic wildlife images requires a long telephoto lens? Or perhaps wildlife photography has always been one of your dreams, but you’ve never had the opportunity because it’s expensive traveling to natural areas — plus wildlife spotting opportunities at these locales are often unreliable and fleeting.
One solution to learn new techniques or make your wildlife photography dreams come true is to join a photo tour to a well-known, respected game ranch where well-cared for animals can be photographed in beautiful natural surroundings.
Join Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones, for an exceptional opportunity to learn and work with one of the best photographers and instructors around. This Wildlife Photography Workshop is timed to take advantage of cool winter temperatures when the animals have thick fur coats. Even better, Canon will be there with lots of gear, so you get to try different equipment and don’t even need to own a telephoto lens to participate.
Wildlife encountered may include mountain lion bobcat, lynx, wolves, bears, snow leopard, Amur leopard, coyote, Arctic fox, and red fox — and even a Siberian tiger!
