Tucker will be unpacking his knowledge on photography during two sessions, one on Saturday 15 September at 1.30pm – 4.30pm  and the other on Sunday at 16 September at 1.30pm – 4.30pm.

For only R150, which includes The Getaway Show admission fee, you can learn how to take amazing wildlife pictures. Each workshop can be booked separately, to ensure everyone has a fair chance of attending. If you’re a photo enthusiast, you can book two sessions for R250 (includes admission for one person at the show).

Tucker will cover the topics of “getting off Auto”, as well as presenting his wildlife photography short course.
