Do you feel the call of the wild? Want some great safari animal shots but don’t want to spend weeks on an airplane flying to the remote reaches of Africa. Experience the next best thing to actually being on an African Photo Safari!

Join us on a thrilling workshop with the international award-winning photographer Laurie Rubin at the world-renowned Fossil Rim Wildlife Sanctuary in Glen Rose Texas.

Discover this amazing sanctuary that is home to a great variety of free roaming, endangered species, while receiving expert photographic instruction from experienced, award-winning Pro Photographers. 

You’ll get the opportunity to capture images of animals in the best light, and great views from our private vehicles as you receive hands-on instruction during our venture around this 1,800 acre center that is home to over 1,000 animals. 

This is more than just a basic how-to photo workshop. Learn the ins-and-outs of getting that ‘hero’ shot, including what to look for and how to anticipate animal behavior before you press the shutter. We will demonstrate best practices for capturing great wildlife images as well as post-processing techniques and critiques.


We base our workshop at The Inn on the River in Glen Rose, Texas. This is a fabulous Bed & Breakfast that is only a few miles down the road from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Refuge.

We will begin and end our workshop at the meeting room at the inn. A private tour has been planned for Friday morning and again on Saturday Afternoon. This gives us two opportunities to visit the park with different lighting conditions.  

At other times we will be meeting at the inn to discuss how to plan your trips and also the best practices for capturing and processing great wildlife images.
