For the budding wildlife photographer! Guided by expert tutors, kids will explore during this workshop how to capture daily life at the National Zoo and Aquarium. Day One is a field trip to the zoo, with participants trying out different approaches to creating great images of different animals. Day Two is based at PhotoAccess, where the kids will be introduced to Adobe Creative software, review and edit their images from the zoo and create their own printed safari scrapbook to take home. Cost includes entry to the Zoo.
Participants are welcome to use either a provided point and shoot camera or bring their own DSLR camera. Laptops loaded with the appropriate Adobe software are provided.
Suitable for Kids 10-15 years old. *Cost includes entry to the Zoo.
Parents and siblings (below 10) are welcome to attend the day at the Zoo, however they will be required to pay to enter separately and siblings MUST be supervised by a parent at all times.
This workshop is suitable for 10-15 year olds. Beginners to more advanced photo-makers are welcome to enrol.

Emily Blenkin is a Canberran photographer, youth worker and small business owner who really, really loves photography. She studied photomedia and applied anthropology at the ANU. After graduating, she worked in the remote NT and WA doing community development.
After returning to Canberra to start a family and spending most of her days with very cute children, Emily founded Wild Little Things Photography to photograph families and pets, two of her absolute favourite subjects. She also works with vulnerable young people, both in groups and individually, to use photography and art as a medium to foster resilience and build skills in emotional literacy. She has been teaching digital photography at PhotoAccess school holiday programs for several years, and runs community workshops to share the mental health and mindfulness benefits of photography and create strong connections within communities post-pandemic.
Her artistic practice plays with ethnography, documentary and narrative photography. She uses images to tell both completely true and entirely fabricated stories about motherhood, social justice, adventure and suburbia.
