Join Dylan & Peter photographing wildlife at the Koala Conservation Reserve

About the event

Join Peter from Peter Fogarty Photography and Melbourne Photography Excursions, and Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, Dylan Giannakopoulos at their Koala Conservation Reserve Photography Workshop at Phillip Island on Saturday 31st August 2024. The Phillip Island Koala Conservation Reserve is home to over a dozen koalas as well as wallabies, echidnas and native birds. The two treetop boardwalks allow for close-up viewing of koalas and other native wildlife without any fences obstructing your view.  

Participants will:

  • Learn how to use compositional techniques within your photography to create captivating imagery.
  • Master control of various camera modes and settings and learn how to read your camera’s histogram.  
  • Capture koalas in their native habitat with the latest and greatest Sony Alpha cameras and lenses.

Guest will also be invited to join a private Facebook group strictly limited to past Dylan Gianna Photography Workshops attendees. The Facebook group offers members a space to share their images, ask questions and learn tips and tricks from Dylan.

Please note, the workshop fee does not include your general admission ticket to the conservation reserve. This must be purchased on the day for $16.00.
