Amazing Overnight Photography Class

Saturday, August 12-13, 7pm-9am

Led by professional wildlife photographer George Ritchey

See the Zoo in a whole new light as you join professional wildlife photographer George Ritchey for a unique overnight photography workshop. Photography enthusiasts, from beginner to expert, are invited to learn tips and tricks for capturing images of animals, especially in low light as you explore the Zoo at night. You will also have opportunities to see a few animals up close in a special animal demonstration as you explore the Reptile building. Have fun listening to the lions roar, and hear other animal sounds as you camp in the Junior League of Birmingham – Hugh Kaul Children’s Zoo. This is a truly one of a kind experience and you will leave with plenty of photographic memories.
