Renown wild life photographer offering a free photography workshop for teen girls

Renowned professional wildlife photographer, Suzi Eszterhas, is offering a free wildlife photography workshop for teen girls.

Eszterhas wants to offer this opportunity to girls between the age of 13-18 in an effort to encourage more girls to enter the male-dominated field of wildlife photography.

The workshop will take place in Moss Landing, California, on November 6th, 2016.

“Wildlife photography is such a male-dominated field. It is my hope that this free workshop might spark a few young girls to make the dream of being a wildlife photographer into a reality," Eszterhas said in a statement. "Making it in this field takes confidence and persistence, which teenage girls don’t always have. When I was a teen, my life took many crazy turns - boys, family instability, etc - and there were a few landmark moments with professional women in various fields that helped to keep me from becoming totally lost and stay the course. Maybe the next generation of wildlife photographers will include more women”.

The event is part of Eszterhas new initiative to encourage more women to enter the field of wildlife photography. The day includes a photography lesson and a picnic lunch, followed by a private boat charter on the Elkhorn Slough to photograph sea otters, seals and birds.

All girls must have their own transportation to Moss Landing, and must bring their own camera (this can be an SLR, point and shoot, or even a tablet or phone). There will be two slots for low-income girls (in which camera gear and transportation will be provided).

There are 15 spaces available. Applicants must apply Oct 15th by email to For more information about the photographer, visit her website here.
