Quokka Photography Workshop with Alex Cearns

September 16, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn how to capture great photos of quokkas in the wild.

Join Alex Cearns, professional animal photographer and author of The Quokka’s Guide to Happiness, for a fun and informative session on how to capture fabulous photos of the island’s iconic animal – the quokka!

Alex photographs thousands of animals each year and has spent countless hours with the quokkas of Rottnest Island, so who better to learn from?

Learn the tried and tested ‘FLASH’ acronym which will give you the tools to take your quokka photography to the next level.

You’ll also learn about interacting with wildlife safely before heading out on a photo walk around the settlement, where Alex will help you put your newfound skills into practice as you perfect your quokka portraits.

These workshops are suitable for everyone, with any sort of camera, including phones.

The Quokka Photography Workshop is free to attend, but registrations are required.

Please ensure you register all members of your family, including adults and children. Children must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times during the event.

While every intent is for events to go ahead as planned, in some circumstances they may have to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Where to find the event

Meet for this workshop at the Picture Hall in the main settlement, easily accessible by foot from the main jetty.
