This workshop begins on Wednesday, October 10 at 4:00pm and ends on Friday, October 12 at 4:00pm.

Create all the dazzling images of an African photo safari—without leaving the country. Join us in the heart of Texas with Canon Explorer of Light Rick Sammon, as we visit Fossil Rim Wildlife Center for a multi day workshop to photograph zebra, wildebeest, cheetah, rhino, giraffe and other rare and remarkable creatures in a natural environment.

Where we're going:

We'll be based at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Texas (75 miles southwest of Dallas), where Rick will share his vast knowledge, tips and photographic skills. You will see over 1,000 animal species over 1,700 acres.

You’ll even have the option to stay in an authentic safari-style tent where you’ll overlook one of Fossil Rim’s most popular wildlife watering holes and wake to the view of free-roaming animals—just like an African safari.
