14th December 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Join Olympus and leading UK wildlife photographer, Andy Rouse, for an action packed day of talks, workshops and photography tuition from the man himself!

WWT Slimbridge is one of nine wetland centres across the UK, founded by Sir Peter Scott in 1946. Now a renowned reserve for waterbirds set in 120 acres. The new £6.2m visitor centre houses a wildlife art gallery, The Hanson Discovery Centre, a waterside restaurant, cinema and the Sloane Observation Tower (providing the best view of the Severn in the whole of Gloucestershire). Wild swans from Russia visit every winter and all six types of flamingos delight the crowds during the summer months.

Andy’s reputation for incredible wildlife images from around the globe is well documented. He’ll begin the day with a presentation covering his recent expeditions using the flagship Olympus E-M1X and PRO range of lenses. Then moving onto more practical photography sessions – and given that Andy has photographed and run workshops at Slimbridge for many years, he is perfectly placed to show us around!

There will be tech advice and hands-on help from Olympus Technical Specialists plus a macro area for the break out groups! Of course there will be the latest Olympus cameras and lenses available to borrow for the day. Please let us know if there is anything specific you wish to try out on registration and we’ll try our best to accommodate requests!

Ticket price: £50 inc. VAT
