Bird of prey photography workshop


Buzzard eating rabbit

After the success of the bird of prey photography workshop last weekend I have added another workshop on Sunday 21st August 2016.

The afternoon session is divided into three sections: first we work on getting you static shots of the birds in their natural environments, such as buzzard perched on oak trees in woodland or kestrels perched on farm equipment. We’ll then move on to capturing these beautiful birds in flight, a difficult but rewarding challenge! We’ll progress from relatively slow birds, such as the harris hawk, all the way up to extremely fast species such as the lanner falcon. Finally we will photograph a barn owl on farm posts and within rustic farm buildings – a perfect end to the session.

Subjects differ on each workshop but include common kestrel, American kestrel, common buzzard, barn owl, ural owl, white-faced owl, harris hawk, steppe eagle, lanner falcon, barbary falcon, saker falcon, peregrine falcon.

To view a selection of photographs taken by group members, please click Bird of prey client photographs.

Skokholm puffin photography 2016 dates released

puffin silhouette

Exciting news!!The Pembrokeshire Wildlife Trust has exclusively allowed me to once again lead a small group of photographers on two puffin trips in July 2016. The trips will take place between the 1st – 4th July and 4th and 8th July on Skokholm island, off the coast of Wales. Skokholm is limited to just 16 people at a time and as a result it feels incredibly isolated and wild. With 4500 puffins, 2000 razorbills, 45,000 manx shearwater and a multitude of other sea birds the photographic opportunities are almost boundless, it’s really quite an experience and one you won’t forget. The trip cost is a bargain at £295, places are limited and will be filled on a first come first served basis so book early to avoid disappointment. For more information visit the dedicated page for this trip.

UPDATE 27/10/15: Both trips are now fully booked. Contact me to be placed on the waiting list incase of any cancellations.

Another fantastic trip to Skokholm

Puffin

Last week I returned from running two trips out to Skokholm Island. I am glad to say that it remains one of my favourite places in the world. Sharing the island a small group of photographers, over 6,000 puffins, 90,000 manx shearwaters and a host of other seabirds is a real privilege. This year the trips took place a little later and we were rewarded by views of baby puffins, pufflings (!), peeking out at the world for the first time from their burrows. The drama continued at fever pitch as adult puffins brought in sand eels for their growing young, whilst being attacked by gulls and even a peregrine! As soon as the 2016 dates are released I will let you know. If you are not already then sign up to my newsletter on the homepage of the website, that way you get first dibs on the limited places.
