During the annual Getaway outdoor expo, wildlife photography workshops are offered.

Has anyone perhaps attended some of these and would like to hear from you whether it is value added.

Any additionl info also welcome.

I am considering attending wth next round of expos.

Kaapsedraai, I have not attended any myself, but I have heard really good feedback.

Thank you, Meandering. Mouse. :thumbs_up:
Someone was also commenting positively about the workshop when we visited the coffee shop at Lourensford.

Hello ello, Kaapsedraai I attended one and it was pretty decent, some good tips and tricks along with all the general stuff. It depends on how much experience you already have with wildlife photography, as you may know most of what they teach. But either way it was informative and helpful.

Ranred, thank you for sharing your experience. :thumbs_up:
I agree, it depends on your level of experience. The energy around and the insights must have an positive impact on one. Perhaps next year a consideration to attend. :hmz:

Pleasure, apologies for such a late reply :redface:
They should indeed. And even if you do know all they have to say, they might point out some interesting perspectives not thought of before. Am also considering some more courses next year.
