THE REPTILIA ZOO WALKABOUT IS CANCELED FOR THE TIME BEING SINCE THE 10 PEOPLE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT WAS NOT MET...
Instead we will visit the Sharon Temple at 18974 Leslie Street Sharon, Ontario. This is an interesting place and there are definitely quite a few photo opportunities. We will meet on Saturday April 13 at 10:00 a.m. at the usual Tim Hortons located next to the Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School.
Sharon Temple is very close by and we can be there within half an hour. We can take either one or two cars depending on how many people show up. I will be happy to drive and give a lift to those people who need it.
If you have signed up to go to Reptilia and do not wish to participate in the trip to Sharon Temple outing, please please click on the "cancel signup" link below to remove your name from the list.
We haven't had a walkabout for a quite a while. As mentioned at the last meeting, I propose that our next walkabout be at Reptilia Zoo Toronto. They have a program meant especially for photography clubs where they offer the following:
- 1 1/2 hour photo shoot with up to five animals
- Private room
- Dedicated wrangler
- Variety of Backdrops, Backgrounds,and Props
- Unlimited time in the zoo afterwards to photograph the animals on exhibit, take in a show or even see a live feeding.
We also have the option to choose specific types of reptiles such as:
- venomous animals
- native species
- custom themes
The only downside to this particular walkabout is that it's not free. There is a cost of $25 per person, with a ten person minimum. The bonus of course is that once done with the private session we can also tour the rest of the zoo for as long as we want.
Please sign up for this activity ASAP so that I can gauge whether or not this is something people are interested in. I would estimate that this activity will probably take place between 11 a.m. and 5 or 6 p.m. Remember that you need to be logged in order to be able to sign up.
