Technically Creative Wildlife Photography

Join specialist photographic safari guide and co-founder of Wild Eye Gerry van der Walt for a presentation on using a strong technical foundation creatively to create striking wildlife images. Through examples and an easy-to-understand approach, Gerry will connect the creative side of wildlife photography to the technical basis of the craft, from “in the field” creativity to camera settings and processing your final product. He will follow with a Q&A session to help you apply these concepts to your own work.
