Full Day Workshops offered March 16 & 17, 2018 from 6:30 am2:00 pm

“Photographing wildlife is one of the most rewarding areas of photography. It touches our emotions, is dynamic and fast moving, and when we feel the connection, it changes peoples’ lives! As your instructor, I promise to bring you opportunities for being near and connected to a variety of wildlife, to maximize the number of wildlife photo opportunities in the limited time we’re together, to prepare you in advance so you know what to expect, and to be your co-pilot as you capture the essence of those special moments with your camera”.
– Kathleen Reeder

Kathleen will prepare and guide you to capture the feelings and the beauty of the rescued animals. This private workshop consists of both an Online Webinar Presentation on March 12 and an exclusive photography event on March 16 & 17 at Lions Tigers & Bears, with many unique and exciting features:
