Do you want to learn to photograph wildlife?

Lyle Radford, photographer of more than 40 years will show you how. Join Lyle for a day of fun and nature photography – using live animals in a controlled environment.

We bring the wildlife to you. No need to go wandering into the bush looking for subjects while you are learning your craft. With the assistance of a registered and licensed wildlife handler we bring the subjects to you.

After 40 years of working in the PR and Press industry as a full time photographer I am now pursuing my passion of Natural Environment photography. I am keen to pass on my experience to fellow photographers. This workshop is aimed at the photographer starting out with some or limited understanding of basic photography and a love of nature, wildlife and the environment.
