Master Bird Photography is a small group 4hr workshop hosted in Centennial Park on select Saturdays.

Master Bird Photography

Bird Photographing changes with the seasons and every time you venture out, weather and nature will influence each experience, making it a unique opportunity to observe wildlife at its best and make connections with nature.

Photographer and tutor Sara Corlis will introduce you to small natural environments throughout Sydney. She has an ethical approach to Nature and Wildlife Photography, and when out in the field, will respectfully introduce you to endemic and migratory birds, as well as some backyard favourites.

Private tuition allows us to enter the landscape anonymously, find the birds and focus on capturing images that reflect not only portraits of birds in their environment, but also photograph their behaviours, interactions and individual personalities.
