Extraordinary way to see big cats and other animals up close to photograph them as part of a group with special access. This is over and above any other zoo trip I have taken as a member of general public, for general access, up close interaction is always iffy. Reeder does her best to prepare attendees for the experience and engage in positive active coaching during the photoshoot. Sometimes our subjects just don't cooperate and sometimes we mess up the shots with our cameras. But following her direction at least minimizes photographer operator error. I have done a number of guided photoshoots involving various nature genres. And, all things considered I believe Reeder puts it all together better than any I have seen so far. Her preparatory material is high quality. IMHO, if attendees want to maximize such a quality experience like this, they have a significant responsibility to review the material furnished in advance and practice in advance. Practice the camera settings especially since some may have never been attempted before. And, most important, practice keeping the critters in viewfinder with point of focus where you want it to be. Doing this with moving subjects is harder than it looks. Opinions vary. But in some circumstance I personally would have preferred to experience more time with carnivores than with the hoofed critters, as majestic as the later can be. All in all, for photographing the animals, this is better than searching the African wilds for subjects to shoot. How many days would one spend finding the number of subjects that one did in the one day workshop? My guess is significantly more with greater probability of not finding animals to successfully photograph. Bottom line, would I do this again? Absolutely.

This was my first experience trying out wildlife photography. The workshop works with Triple D Wildlife, which is a game farm that provides the animals to be photographed. You are in locations and habitats that puts you in close proximity to the animals providing a unique photography experience. The animals are well cared for, and the trainers are very experienced. Kathleen is passionate about wildlife photography, and it is contagious. She provided excellent hands on instruction throughout the workshop, constantly providing tips and tricks. The workshop size is kept small to allow kathleen the ability to work with everyone as needed. Workshop days scheduled anywhere between 3-6 sessions depending on the weather. Overall, an excellent experience, highly recommend for anyone interested in wildlife photography.

Kathleen is an amazing, passionate and professional wildlife photographer. She recently spoke at our photography club. Her presentation and visuals were topnotch. Some of our members have also attended her workshops and have come away thrilled they took the time to attend.
