- Honing your technique to unleash your creativity
- Attaining mastery over your gear

While we'll focus on the art of capturing unique portraits of wildlife in their natural environment, we'll also cover other aspects of nature photography, such as landscape and astrophotography, if there is interest from the class.
What experience do I need to take this workshop?
You can take this workshop if you meet any of the following requirements:
- You're new to photography and you're willing to put in the work to learn some foundational technical skills and techniques. This work can be done before the workshop begins or during the workshop.
- You have experience as a photographer but have never photographed wildlife before.
- You have experience photographing wildlife but want to get better.
All participants will receive a survey prior to the workshop to help Adrian target the workshop to their needs as much as possible.
How will this workshop be delivered?
Each class will be streamed live using multiple high-definition video feeds to present video, images, and in-camera views. Each class will be approximately 90-120 minutes long and broadcast on a Sunday at 11 ET (North American Eastern Time).
If you need to take a quick break during a class, it will be possible to pause the playback and resume later and watch with a delay. You can also jump forward to the "live" point at any time.
If you miss a class you will able to catch (or replay) the recording of that class for up to one week after the initial broadcast.
During a class, you can questions at any time by typing in the livechat and Adrian will answer on camera. Small class size ensures all questions get answered. Continue discussion and get support between classes by joining a private online forum dedicated to this workshop. You'll be able to chat using text or voice and share images with the group or with anyone in the group including Adrian.
Mini-surveys will be used throughout the workshop to help tailor each class to the group.
After the workshops concludes you'll receive an invitation to an online forum where you can continue to interact with Adrian and other wildlife photographers as you continue to level-up your craft.
What if I can't make the scheduled time for a class?
All classes will be recorded and made available for one week. This gives you the opportunity to play it if you miss the class or even to replay it if you want to go over something that was discussed. The only thing with watching the class later is that you won't be able to ask questions live and have them answered on camera however you will be able to ask questions in the forum at any time.
Will you be offering this again with classes at a different time of day?
We understand that the scheduled class times may not work for everyone especially given different timezones. At this stage we can't commit to the scheduling for future online workshops but we will certainly offer the workshop again if there is demand. If you would be interested in registering for a workshop at a different time of day, please let us know.
If you have any questions about this workshop, feel free to use our contact form.
