What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Visit a zoo in the winter? Absolutely! The Bronx zoo is open year-round, which is fortunate for us as animals love the snow, and nothing makes a more impressive photograph than a fierce tiger surrounding by a wintery backdrop. The winter also means less crowds, less heat and humidity and more active animals. The zoo also boasts some impressive indoor exhibits as well, giving us a chance to stay warm and toasty while photographing exotic species. Exhibit highlights include Jungle World, the Bronx Zoo's indoor rain forest featuring nearly 800 species, Madagascar, showcasing a variety of wildlife and plants from the island, Himalayan Highlands (weather permitting), Highland Himalayas (weather permitting), home to the striking snow leopards and red panda, Sea Lion Pool (weather permitting), watch them frolic, play and get fed, creating the perfect opportunity for capturing images, and Astor Court, home to the zoo's original landmark Beaux-Arts buildings.
We're keeping you safe by promoting social distancing and moving the class portion of the workshop online. We'll cover such topics as camera settings for wildlife photography, focusing on fast moving birds and animals, handling tricky lighting situations, composing great wildlife images, storytelling, and framing. For full details view the registration page on our website.
Then it's on to the animal exhibits to practice our skills, and learn new hands-on techniques. Each participant will receive a guide with helpful tips, techniques and tricks for getting amazing shots in a zoo setting.
Note: Admission IS included with your registration fee. However, participants are responsible for their own parking fees to the zoo, check the website link for full details.
