BIAZA Love your Zoo Photography Week
Why not join us to celebrate the beauty of nature from the 25th May to 1st June. We will be holding a week-long event focusing on loving our Zoo, through Photography. The event will focus on conservation, education and research, with specialist talks. Why not enter our competition to capture images of the animals and the Zoo in various ways to win prizes! Don't worry if you only have a phone to capture images, all pictures will be considered.
On Thursday 30th and Friday 31st May we will be holding five, FREE, photography composition workshops. Peter Hitchman from Going Digital will be leading these, which range in age and will be able to be booked on the day. Please note there will be more information to follow.
