Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved going to the San Francisco Zoo. Although I wish the animals were roaming free in their natural habit I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to see these magnificent creatures up close. Especially for those of us who might never otherwise have such a chance.

Its one thing though to look at the animals as a whole, I mean we all know what a Giraffe or Elephant looks like…but have you ever looked closely at a Giraffe’s eyelashes or isolated an Elephants eye? How about closeups of a bird’s feathers or other fine details of a critters hide? If you enjoy abstract photography you can go crazy breaking down these fine details of nature.

Join me for a three hour session at the San Francisco Zoo. In addition to seeing in a different way I will help you with proper camera settings and photographic techniques. This is a great setting for learning wildlife photography in the field as well.

This is for 35mm DSLR and MFT type cameras.

Bring your longest lens you have. I suggest a minimum 300mm. (My favorite here is my 100-400 zoom. I use a tele-converter as well for portrait shots. A wide angle lens is quite handy as well.  Tripods can be unwieldy in this environment and are not allowed,however mono-pods are handy and are ok.

Definitely bring layered clothing as it can get cold.

You will be responsible for your meals & transportation….
