Wild Eye Webinars – Week #6

At Wild Eye our goal is to change the way you see the world and now we still super excited about our new online webinars which we kicked off on the 29th of April.

If you are anything like our guides, and longing for African adventure, you’ve probably been scrolling through your image archives reminiscing about the amazing time’s you’ve had on safari. Given that we are not able to travel during these uncertain times and experience these incredible destinations with you, our team have launched a series of brand new and exciting Premium Webinars which will see us taking the learning and teaching that we are known for in the field, online.

Each in-depth Premium Webinar presentation, of varying lengths depending on the topic at hand, is followed by a 30 minute interactive Q&A session. Space is limited to only 50 attendees per event, and, as a newsletter subscriber, we want to offer you priority in signing up for these paid premium webinars whilst space is available.

Not only would you be exposed to a bunch of really useful wildlife photography and post processing techniques, we’d have some fun in the process!

The Premium Webinars are hosted via Zoom with attendees receiving a personalised link to the event upon booking and completing payment via PayPal. Whilst we would suggest downloading and installing the Zoom application, it is possible to view and participate without doing so.
