Australian Wildlife Photography Workshop

Melbourne Camera Club would like to invite you too a unique photographic experience in our studio.

Australian Wildlife Displays offer an enchanting and immersive experience for nature enthusiasts and photography enthusiasts alike. Australia boasts an array of fascinating native animals that captivate photographers with their distinctive behaviours and vibrant colours. From iconic marsupials like possums and crocodiles to elusive creatures like the pythons, lizards, birds, frogs and bats you will be provided an up-close encounter with these most extraordinary wildlife.

Photographing these native animals up close in our studio with some native props, backdrops and mirrors add an extra layer of excitement to the experience also allowing us photographers an opportunity to capture images close up with some subtle studio lights and reflections .

We will have multiple shooting stations spread out with the wildlife expert rotating the animals so everyone gets the perfect shot  of each creature without any risk of stressing the creature.

These animals are used to being handled and their well being is paramount for their handler. The handler will pose the animal to maximise your photographic experience.

Moreover, Australian wildlife displays contribute to conservation efforts by educating visitors about the importance of preserving these unique species and their habitats. Many exhibits prioritise conservation messaging, fostering awareness and a sense of responsibility for the protection of Australia’s incredible biodiversity. Photographers, in turn, have the opportunity to use their images as a means of sharing the beauty of Australian wildlife and advocating for the conservation of these iconic species.

In conclusion, Australian wildlife displays offer a delightful combination of entertainment, education, and photographic opportunities. The chance to observe and capture images of native animals in a controlled and informative environment enhances the joy of photography while contributing to the broader goal of wildlife conservation. Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or a casual observer, these displays provide an immersive experience that celebrates the uniqueness of Australia’s incredible fauna.
