Sheep Shearing Photography Safari - Ottawa

Join us for a photo safari as we capture events surrounding spring sheep shearing - including sheep, shearing, dog agility and other farm animals.

You will document life on the farm during shearing season while receiving photo tips to make your work more compelling and technically sound.

You will photograph:

All of this with the assistance and support of your guide, Harry.

What you need:

Bring any camera - from point and shoot to high tech SLR. You may bring a tripod and flash - but they are not necessary.

Bring comfortable clothes, footwear and a friend to share the fun.

The safari is appropriate for photographers of all skill levels.

How are a Safari and a Workshop different?:

On a safari the emphasis is on fun and friends with some photo guidance and tips included.

On a workshop the emphasis is on learing specific photo skills. Fun is always included.

The group (maximum 15 people) explores the workings of the farm, inside & out. Your guide, Harry, leads you and your friends to the sweet spots to help you capture active shots of flying dogs and sheep being clipped.

We walk one to two kilometres over the safari stopping to take photos along the way. Top photos will be featured on the blog at

"Is this a digital or film session?"

It is a fun photography session - about exploring with your camera. Do not worry about your equipment - all you need is a camera and a smile - "point and shoot" cameras are fine for this event.
