Wildlife Photography Courses

Wildlife Photography Courses

If you have a passion for wildlife photography and want to develop essential skills without having to travel, our Wildlife Photography Courses are perfect for you. Armed with your camera we’ll go deep into Richmond Park – the largest enclosed space in London – to photograph herds of Red and Fallow deer.

In a natural environment, you’ll get a hands-on experience of observing and photographing wild animals. As with all of our photography workshops at City Academy, you will learn from professional photographers with years of experience, and your amazing photos will reflect the level of teaching.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
