Together with Canon, The Getaway Show will offer four, two-hour long photography workshops at the show, featuring two of the most decorated and accomplished African wildlife and landscape photographers – Andrew Aveley and Michael Tucker.

Each Canon Photography Workshop at The Getaway Show is offered at the incredible price of R150 per session, which includes The Getaway Show admission fee (valued at R80 for adults). Each of the four photography workshops can be booked separately, and photo enthusiasts wanting to book two sessions can do so for R250 (includes admission for one person at the show).
