This was my second time attending Kathleen's Minn. Wildlife and Spring Babies workshop and I had a great experience and was able to capture some great images of the animals. Kathleen is such a great trip leader, providing on-site assistance to photographers of varying skill levels concerning their shooting technique, equipment, post processing, etc. She is very organized and puts participants in the best position to capture great images. Minn. Wildlife Connection also does a great job presenting and caring for the animals.

I decided to do the Out of Africa Photo Workshop after being inspired by a photograph taken there of a lion in beautiful early morning light. It was one of the best photography workshops in which I have participated. Part of what made it great was the close relationship between the animals and the zookeeper, who facilitated our shots and gave us interesting insights into animal behavior. He got the hyenas to "laugh" - not what you think - and went into the enclosure of two juvenile tigers to get them to play! We got very, very close to the animals and we even got to touch the rhino and feed a giraffe. The animals were impressive and adorable. I particularly enjoyed the interaction with the white tiger, the grizzly bear, the giraffe, the zebras and the rhino. It was a very memorable zoo experience. Overall, the tour was great because of the thoughtfulness put into the organization by Kathleen and her team. Kathleen is a world class photographer (Getty Images) and an attentive teacher who shares her first person experience unsparingly, in clear language. There was a webinar the previous week and a final briefing the night before the tour. We knew exactly what to expect, what gear to bring and how to use it to the best effect. That made the day of the shoot so much smoother. The logistics, the meals, the breaks and the communication were perfect, unobtrusive and well timed. After the workshop, pictures taken of us interacting with the animals were shared online. I particularly liked an iconic group shot with the rhino. Nice to have. We were also able to share our pictures with the zoo. Finally, we were gifted a post-processing webinar detailing Kathleen's personal workflow from shots taken at the zoo. I learned a lot of new things.

Kathleen does an excellent job helping with settings and where to position yourself for great shots. She is warm and personable making everyone welcome and totally approachable for questions. I just completed Out of Africa Wildlife Park workshop with her and she arranges everything including a great guide, access right up against predator fences, etc. for wonderful shooting opportunities unavailable to the general public. I got fantastic shots. Thank you, Kathleen.

Loved it !! We attended Kathleen's photography workshop at OOA park in Arizona - Fantastic in every way! I Kathleen gave great instructions and assistance, very thorough. The animals and views were amazing, we were able to shoot directly through a fence inches from the animals, early morning shots before park was open, a really great opportunity for photos !! Very organized, nice small group. Can't wait to try another workshop ! Highly recommend!

I signed up for the workshop because I had not shot in a while and was a little skeptical, but it was an amazing experience. I got fantastic photos of a ton of animals and also enjoyed the educational information that was shared. The people at the park were awesome and professional. Kathleen was available to help anyone that needed it and provided great advice on how to get the best shots. I would consider doing it again and have already shared the information with several friends
