Our popular Young Photographers Workshop runs each school holidays and provides great practical learning for any budding young photographer. The participant will be introduced to basic technical terms and concepts with opportunities to develop skills in operating manual modes for those who feel confident - all set at the Zoo! 

Our team of approved professional photography tutors have a range of experience, styles and interests. They are fun, enthusiastic and all well versed in life at Auckland Zoo. You’ll enjoy their fascinating stories, experiences and insights as they guide you on a photographer’s journey through Auckland Zoo.

You’ll confidently master your camera in the companionship of a small group of photography enthusiasts. Auckland Zoo will certainly provide opportunities that will both inspire and challenge, not to mention a portfolio of images, experiences and new technical skills that will be highly valued by any budding photographer. Plenty to take home!
