Wildlife is one of the most popular subjects for people to photograph, but comes with a whole set of challenges – not just equipment choice, camera settings and techniques: we also need to learn a little about getting close to the subject without disturbance.
This is Ian’s favourite subject when not working and he has 40 years experience of photographing our native birds and animals in the wild.
Our Wildlife Workshops are held at Nature Reserves rather than zoos, to enable us to appreciate the challenges of habitat and the importance of ‘stealth’.
This 6 hour workshop starts with a discussion of settings & technique at the JSCF private nature reserve near Bouth. After practicing in and around the study centre, we will venture out into the reserve after lunch to put theory into practice, before returning to the study centre for review and feedback of your images.
NB. Unfortunately this workshop is not suitable for people with significant mobility issues, as this is a completely natural reserve without level surfaced paths.
Please also note there can be no guarantee of any particular species being within ‘range’. Lenses of at least 200mm focal length are recommended.
