Wildlife Photographer of the Year – The Glen Grant Masterclass Series

Capturing the world through a camera lens takes skill and a bit of luck but it also requires a few senses – namely sight, hearing and touch. A keen eye for your subject, audio awareness for any second-by-second changes and a feel for every part of your shutter, zoom and focus. You can save the other two senses for a glass of The Glen Grant whisky.

The Glen Grant is proud to be the Event Partner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Masterclass Series at the Australian National Maritime Museum. The Glen Grant Masterclass Series is a four-part content series where we speak to some of the photographers involved in the exhibition about how they capture the world, the wildlife that they chased for the perfect shot and how their tips and advice can help those starting out on their own photography journey.
