Raptor Photography Workshops
The following information gives an idea of how these events normally run, however our schedule on the day is very flexible to accomodate the best potential returns for our attendees.
NEXT DATE IS - TBA but likely March 2013
places are already being reserved
During this time we shall cover the areas of Aesthetics and Technical skills for static shots, referring to our own 'how to' guide and answering questions as they present themselves.
We work with our expert falconers to ensure that the environment is used to the optimum, your photography will be accompanied with hands-on tuition and advice throughout as required.
We shall break for lunch at no pre-determined time, it will be based on our progress throughout the morning, as well as taking into account lighting conditions, rainfall etc. Should anyone have questions that they wish to discuss in 'private' then i shall be available throughout.
Previous feedback has suggested that this is particularly worthwhile as it allows us to ensure an understanding of, and if appropriate, fine-tune the morning's lessons.
The afternoon's photography will generally involve different bird species and will finish no earlier than 4pm.
Our potential cast list includes;
'Fenn' a rather striking Barn Owl, 'Bottom' a Long-Eared Owl, 'Angus' a Bengal Eagle Owl,'Beth' a Sparrowhawk, 'Kip' a male Kestrel, 'Nell' a young female Kestrel, 'Splatt' the Harris Hawk, and most challenging of all 'Pilgrim' a Peregrine Falcon.
Please note that we cannot guarantee photography access of any specific bird on the day - that decision will be made between myself and our expert falconers who will consider the bird's health and condition etc above all else.
The full price for a normal event is £95 per attendee, but 'specialist events will be priced accordingly.
However, we believe in rewarding client-loyalty and currently offer discounts for previous attendees, or those introducing / bringing a participating friend along. The discount is not cumulative etc and offers no financial redemption value in lieu.
We are also generally happy to accomodate camera clubs, and will work out a group booking price as appropriate.
Please see example gallery and previous feedback for Raptors workshops.
Our 2012 Raptor photography days were fully attended and well received - please see our client feedback area as well as client images and critique. What i can achieve is of course of some relevance but what we can help you to achieve is of far greater import.
Please do advise of your interest to receive details of future dates, if you are looking to bring multiple attendees then we will, wherever practical accomodate your date preference.
Also we are planning a 'specialist event' workshop for returning clients wanting to achieve something marginally different.
