Botanic Gardens Trust, Sydney, Australia

Discover the wonderful art of photography

The Garden offers endless opportunities to capture gorgeous photos of flora, fauna, landscapes, sculpture and sunsets. You can hone your skills at a photography workshop in the Garden this winter.

Get started with the Beginnerís workshop or extend your knowledge and expertise further at the Intermediate class. These fun three hour workshops offer a chance to explore the Garden both through and beyond the camera lens.

Young shutterbugs will also get the chance to join a fun and interactive photography workshop. Kids can learn how to use a camera and get the best shot whilst joining new friends in discovering the amazing art of photography in the incredible setting of Australiaís largest botanic garden.

For the first time, we are offering the Shutterbug Shuttle tour. This tour will take you on a journey around the Garden in the lead up to the 2014 Budding Photographer competition. Visit popular locations in the Garden for photography and take advantage of the evening light as the day comes to a close.

Get behind the lens and explore your Garden. From frogs and beetles, statuesque wallaroos, intricate patterns of leaves and bark, bright flowers in bloom, landscapes of rolling hills, to majestic birds in flight - the opportunities are endless.
