These new photo experience days have evolved from those we have successfully staged for adults over many years and provide an opportunity for younger photographers to take advantage and develop their skills further. Edinburgh Zoo provides fantastic opportunities for photographing animals and a selection of these have been chosen upon which to test and demonstrate a range of techniques on the day. With a small group size and the opportunity to offer one-to-one tuition, we are confident of helping you improve your photography, whatever your level of expertise. Please note that this Workshop is for participants aged 11 – 15 years.  

We are privileged that renowned professional photographer Laurie Campbell will be running our junior photography workshops. Laurie was actually a keeper at Edinburgh Zoo before embarking on a highly successful thirty-year career as a nature photographer and has now returned as the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland's nature photographer in residence. He has over thirty-five years’ experience in leading photographic workshops, has illustrated and authored several books including the bestselling ‘RSPB Guide to Bird & Nature Photography’ and has won twenty-three awards in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. In 2014 he was awarded the RSPB's Lifetime Achievement Award. A selection of his work can be viewed at 

Do you have a camera and can take a good basic shot, but are unsure of how to get the most out of all the settings and functions? Are you keen to find out a bit more about the basics of photographing animals and nature? In this workshop, Laurie will take you through the fundamentals of nature photography and help you to get more out of your camera. There will be options for one-to-one tuition throughout the day, so don’t worry about being at a different level to others in the group.
