Wildlife Photographers in conversation – The Glen Grant Masterclass Series

Australian National Maritime Museum 2 mins read

Capturing the world through a camera lens takes skill and a bit of luck, but it also requires a few senses – namely sight, hearing and touch. A keen eye for your subject, audio awareness for any second-by-second changes and a feel for every part of your shutter, zoom and focus.


As part of Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the Australian National Maritime Museum is pleased to host The Glen Grant Masterclass Series. Over four special events, four award-winning photographers will be in conversation on their work and craft, presented by event partner, The Glen Grant - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Photographers will give insights into how they experience and capture the wonders of the natural world, the wildlife they pursue to find that perfect shot, as well as sharing tips, tricks and trade secrets that will deepen every photography journey.


Admission to this special event includes a whisky cocktail, whisky tastings and grazing boards. Bookings are essential. 


Masterclass Dates and Special Guests:

Wednesday 28 June: Juergen Freund - Capturing Two Worlds

Wednesday 12 July: Calumn Hockey - Up a gum tree

Wednesday 26 July: Adam Oswell - Wildlife Photojournalism - Inside the Battle to Save Earth’s Wildlife

Wednesday 9 August: Travis De Vries - Colour, Light & working with Atmospheric Conditions 

Cost: $45 per person / $40 Australian National Maritime Museum members
