By Steven Gotz

This is a ZOOM meeting




There are many reasons to practice photography at a zoo. It is not just about crafting photographs of animals looking like they are in their native habitat. It might also be about the environments that have been created for the animals or the people who visit the zoo.

When Steven retired in 2015, he started practicing his photography at the Oakland Zoo in Northern California. He became the volunteer photographer and a Docentat at the zoo and he realised that Zootography was his true love. Steven will stress the importance of studying the animals at the zoo to learn their habits and understand their biology in order to provide better opportunities for photographs.

He will address some of the challenges of zootography, such as shooting through fencing or glass as well as using the zoo to prepare yourself to photograph animals out in the wild.
