Birds of Prey Photography Workshop

Birds of Prey Photography Workshop

Monday 5th March 2018


To be among the first to hear about the next Birds of Prey Workshop, sign up for my newsletter here.

After very successful workshops in 2017, Daniel is offering this Bird of Prey photography workshop on Monday 5th March 2018 at Cressing Temple Barns near Witham, Essex, in association with Eden Falconry.  We will be photographing a variety of species from natives such as Kestrel, Barn Owl and Tawny Owl, to others like their beautiful Eagle Owl 'Big Alice', and some of these will be flying, some static, giving us a range of different compositions throughout the day.

We will meet at Cressing Temple Barns at 9.30am for a brief introduction and orientation, discussing what we will be covering during the workshop, which is 100% practical photography to give us the maximum time with the birds.  We'll then get started, using the woodland, barns, and beautiful walled garden on site to give us a wide range of styles and settings for the birds. There's a Tiptree Tea Room here too, so we can have a delicious lunch before carrying on until we finish with the birds at 3.30pm.

Throughout the day Daniel will be there to advise how best to set your camera up, discussing angles to shoot from, composition ideas, and anything else you need to ask me.  As we'll be shooting both in and outdoors, there will be lots to take in regarding settings, using the correct ISOs, white balance and so on, and we'll also cover focusing modes and how to control focus points, especially useful for those tricky flight shots!

The barns allow us to carry on shooting should the weather not be in our favour, but also provide a wonderful backdrop for the Barn Owl especially.  There will be a maximum of ten participants on this workshop, so everyone will have plenty of 1-2-1 time with Daniel, and as usual Daniel will not be racing off at the end of the day, so if you wish to stay on to chat or discuss any part of the day that won't be a problem at all.

Ideally participants will be using a DSLR or Compact System Camera with interchangeable lenses, as these cameras generally have quicker focusing and greater control, but any camera will be fine for the static photos.

The cost for the day is £90 per person, but we have a limited time 'Early Bird' offer of £85 for bookings taken before midnight on Thursday 30th November, book now to save some cash!  Use the form below to book and pay, you do not need a Paypal account to book your place, you can simply pay by credit or debit card.
