What can I expect on the day

If you want know your aperture from your focus depth, book yourself onto these beginners’ photography courses based at Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool. This workshop is designed especially for newcomers to the art of taking photographs and aims to show you how to get the best film results for whatever camera you’re using out in the ‘wilds’ of the park with the animals as your focal points.

As with any photography course for beginners, this session explains and demonstrates the different camera settings available, when to use them and how to adapt other aspects like exposure and composition to create stunning snapshots of your chosen subject. All half day courses have an emphasis on being hands-on, so alongside the instructions and tutorials, you’ll be able to get out into the safari park and put your new skills to the test on a range of landscapes and wild animals.

Class numbers for the novice group are kept low, to just three participants, giving you plenty of personalised time with your ‘photography for beginners’ instructor to iron out the kinks in your techniques. There’s also the chance to bring along some of your existing photos for some friendly and constructive advice on how to improve them.

For those with more advanced equipment, such as tripods and filters, you can bring these along to the photography course and get some beginners’ tips and advice on how to make best use of them. Workshops run either in the morning or afternoon and last approximately three hours in total, giving you plenty of time to absorb all those fantastic facts about photography methods. The experience price also includes admission to Knowsley Safari Park, so during your downtime you can explore the wildlife park at your leisure and perhaps even capture some dramatic scenes thanks to your new-found skills.

These fast-focus experiences are the perfect present for any lens-loving photography enthusiast and, when combined with time spent exploring the safari park, can make for a brilliant day out for all the family. So why not bring your flash and macro skills up to scratch with these beginners’ photography courses in Merseyside and see if you can catch some incredible wildlife and landscape shots at this thrilling snap-happy location.
