Photograph the puppies in their outdoor enclosure! Puppy photo shoots allow a small group to meet and photograph the young wolves at their cutest and liveliest.Shoots last two hours and take place in the seven acre enclosure where puppies swim, play, eat and pose. Let the staff know ahead of time if you’re looking for a particular shot.
In September, photo shoots take place 5:00 – 7:00pm. A safety presentation will occur at 4:00pm regarding safe interaction with the wolves. The presentation is MANDATORY before your first time meeting the wolves. Please let the staff know if you are attending the presentation.
In October, photo shoots will take place earlier as the days get darker. The first two will begin 4:30pm and the October 17 shoot will start at 4pm. The safety presenation will occur at 3:00pm before the shoot. Please let the staff know if you are attending the presentation.
Puppies will be provided with enrichment of various kinds to help make the experience pleasant, and interactive for them. Puppies sleep a great deal and parents will not interrupt them when they need naps so expect to photograph both waking and sleeping pups.
Participants must be 18 years of age, wearing long pants and closed- toed shoes, no earrings or perfume, to enter the wolf enclosure. No tripods are allowed; the wolves like to chew on them. Space is limited!! Sign up EARLY!! If we receive your registration and there is no space left in the seminar you choose, we will cancel your online order, and phone or email you about choosing a different date.
Photography opportunities are rarely cancelled, but we will cancel due to severe weather. If we do cancel, or if you cannot make the event due to weather, your fees can be applied to a different seminar. Photo shoots are held in light snow and in drizzle, so bring protection for your camera.
Understand that participating in a seminar does not imbue anyone with authority to speak on behalf of Wolf Park.
In the event of participant cancellation at least 48 hours in advance, monies for this seminar will not be refunded, but may be applied to a future photography seminar.
