Wildlife Photography | Cormac Hanrahan

Photography and animals are a perfect match, but sometimes it’s not always easy to get the shots you want. In this online course join professional photographer, Cormac Hanrahan, as he guides you through how he gets great animal photos.

Utilising an extensive array of images taken on assignment for Zoos Victoria, this course explores technical aspects of photography and relates them to photographing an animal in a variety of situations.

Aimed at beginner and intermediate photographers who love animals, this 2 hour session deconstructs a number of Cormac’s images to explore why they might be considered ‘good’ shots. While the examples provided focus on animals, the lessons can be easily applied to other aspects of photography including sports and family portraits.

Recommended for: Beginner and Intermediate Photographers
