Belfast Zoo is delighted to offer a number of photography workshops in partnership with Jessops Academy.

The award-winning Level 1 photography course is suitable for complete beginners and includes classroom learning and practical sessions in the beautiful setting of the zoo’s Cavehill site.

Jessops Academy teachers will guide you through the creative world of photography, allowing you to ‘develop’ your wildlife photography skills during this fun learning experience. The topics are delivered in a jargon-free style, helping you to feel confident at controlling your camera and moving away from ‘auto’ settings. The course lasts for approximately six hours including breaks.

Participants must bring along their own digital camera (DSLR, CSC, mirrorless, advanced compact, bridge or any camera with manual controls), a fully charged battery (or two) and plenty of camera memory! The full-day course costs £99 per person which includes admission into Belfast Zoo.

Don’t forget to submit your fantastic photographs into Belfast Zoo’s annual photographic competition, sponsored by Jessops and Phil Smyth Photography. The competition closes on Friday 20 September 2019.

Dates: Saturday 15 June, Saturday 20 July, Saturday 17 August, Saturday 14 September, Saturday 19 October.

Time: 10am – 4pm

Price: £99 (includes admission into Belfast Zoo)
