Monarto Zoo Day Photographic Workshop is a photographic day trip where you get to shoot the wildlife . This is Australia’s largest open range zoo and we will be spending the entire day shooting there. The cost of the Monarto Zoo Day Photographic Workshop trip doesn’t cover any meals or food costs. We will be stopping for lunch as there is a cafe there that has a good selection of food for you.

I have hired a special bus that has sliding windows where you can shoot in the open air and not through glass.The bus holds 24 people but I only take 10-11 away with me so you you will always have  window to shoot through no matter what side of the bus the animals are on.

The bug advantage of doing this day workshop with me is that we have an awesome guide with us and we can spend time in each enclosure until we are all happy with what we have photographed. You are not rushed and we certainly don’t zip through each enclosure. This is an ideal time to get close and personal with the animals.

The other big plus is that we get to go behind the scenes with the Rhinos where you are so close to them as this time spent is so special. You can give them a rub, feel the texture of their skin ranging from rough through to silky smooth. This section is not open to the general  public.

Your investment covers the special bus I hire, the driver I hire and the guide that I hire along with the other fees for Monarto Open Range Zoo. This is the next best thing to being on safari in Africa.

Together Pete and Vicki will help you with all of your settings if you should need.
