BBC wildlife photo masterclasses, for free

You could do much worse than learning from the best wildlife photographers. Actually, the BBC Wildlife Magazine is now providing an impressive list of compact training courses for wildlife photography. There are titles like:


  • Wild Places
  • Mammal Portraits
  • Plant Portraits
  • From Dusk to Dawn
  • Underwater Photography
  • Invertebrate Portraits
  • Birds in Flight
  • Animals in their Environment
  • Bird Portraits
  • Reptiles and Amphibians
  • Creative Visions of Nature
  • Wet Weather Wildlife
  • Cold Weather Wildlife
  • Black and White Photography
  • Urban and Garden Wildlife
  • Zoo Photography
  • Bird Behaviour
  • Mammal Behaviour
  • Extreme Close-Up
  • Innovative Wildlife Photography
  • The World in our Hands

Those are complete courses that have been published previously on paper in 2006 and on. If you did not get them at the time, you can now grab the PDF files. You will appreciate the progression from mostly animal portraits to more sophisticated or more subtle kinds of pictures. All of them are great.
