Walk Description

Franklin Park Zoo has over 100 different types of animals for a wide variety of shooting opportunities. Whether you have a safari trip planned and need practice or you just love animals, this walk will be diverse in subject matter and a whole lot of fun! Photographers of all skill levels are welcome!

The Franklin Park Zoo has many indoor and outdoor exhibits which present a variety of photo challenges. Learn wildlife photography in a controlled setting – no waiting hours in the hopes an animal will come along! We’ll discuss composition, action photography, and how to get tack sharp images even when your subject is on the move. We’ll work on the best settings to maximize the gear you have to make sure you’re getting your very best images.

*Please note: This ticket DOES NOT include the entrance cost to the park. MAKE SURE to purchase your ticket well in advance (because they do sell out) at zoonewengland.org. You will want to sign up for the 9am time slot.

Updated COVID-19 Policies for outdoor Hunt’s Photo Walks and Workshops
Hunt’s Photo Education is aligning with CDC and state guidelines and will no longer require face masks for our outdoor Photo Walks. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, please feel free to do so. We also recommend bringing a mask, just in case. We also ask that you maintain social distance of 6 feet from one another.
Hunt’s Photo Education will still adhere to our 8 person attendee maximum per Photo Walk with a single instructor (unless otherwise noted).
As always, if you are sick or feeling unwell, STAY HOME! We will gladly give you a credit towards a future walk.

These guidelines will stay in place until further notice. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at classes@huntsphoto.com.
