STEVE an experienced and enthusiastic wildlife photographer enjoys helping others to avoid and overcome some of the pitfalls and mistakes that are easily fallen into while trying to photograph wildlife. As a qualified teacher of adult education Steve has set up and runs a series of practical workshops.
The aims of these workshops are to:
Help participants to enjoy, improve and succeed with their photography.
To encourage and help participants to develop their own skills.
To help participants understand more about their own equipment.
Give advice on the equipment needed, and its use.
Give field-work experience, giving participants the opportunity to photograph some real subjects in natural locations.
There are a number of different workshops on offer, using a variety of subjects in different locations, covering all the seasons of the year. Habitats included are rocky out crops with heather and bilberry cover, a church yard, parkland, farmland and buildings, bluebell covered woodland and open heath land, with each site offering its own unique features. During the day birds may also be flown and one on each workshop will be set onto prey.
Workshops usually run from 10.30am until 4.30pm with a break for lunch. Participants will be limited, and each workshop will be tailored to them, and run in a relaxed and informative way. As much time as possible will be spent out in the field with the subjects. Tuition and guidance will be given to each individual member as the day progresses. Trained, skilled and very knowledgeable handlers will be on hand to control the subjects and answer any questions you may have regarding them.
Birds available to use on the workshops:
Little Owl, Tawny Owl, Barn Owl, Long-eared Owl, Great Grey Owl, European Eagle Owl, Kestrel - Male & Female, Red Kite, Peregrine Falcon, Merlin, Red Footed Falcon, Sparrowhawk, Goshawk, Golden Eagle, and White-tailed Sea Eagle.
I am also now able to offer a Red Fox as part of one of the workshops.
COST - £90 - £100 per person per workshop - GIFT VOUCHERS ARE AVAILABLE
Group bookings can be made, if you are a camera club, college or just a group of photographers wishing to have a great day's photography in a environment which lends itself to enjoyment and good images then Steve will tailor the day to you. The date and the birds used on the workshop will be your choice (subject to the birds availability). A special rate is set for this.
Steve can also arrange half day workshops with a particular bird in mind, whilst he also offers one to one tuition.
NEW for 2013 Steve now offers a mentoring service which allows you to receive coaching from me to help and support you with your photography. All photographic standards are welcome and you can be assured of individual tuition. Please contact Steve for more details on any of the above.
