What to expect

The workshop is suitable for participants of all levels of experience in photography. Most locations will be readily accessible from the road, although we may hike short distances on occasion.

This event focuses on wildlife photography as a whole; while wildlife sightings can never be 100% guaranteed, Brittany and Dave will use their extensive island wildlife experience to try to ensure some great sightings.  

What to Bring

This will be a "rain or shine" event. Weather in May on Prince Edward Island is generally beautiful but there is, of course, the chance of rain storms, wind, bugs, and hot, hot sun. Please come prepared, accordingly, for all weather conditions.

Please bring:

• suitable and comfortable clothing, which you can layer

• appropriate footwear

• your own camera equipment (preferably DSLR, which allows manual control of shutter speed, aperture and
ISO settings; bring the fastest lens you have)

• a sturdy tripod or monopod.

• a long lens (70-200MM, 300MM, 400MM, 500MM, or 150-600MM all great potential lenses)

• a laptop for editing (with editing software, preferably Adobe)
