Workshop Synopsis
 
This workshop is deliberately scheduled to offer an opportunity to photograph the birds and especially owls into the magical evening light or “golden hour” in the summer. The session is scheduled to start at 2 PM and run through into the evening.
 
This workshop is offered no where else and has been specially arranged by Natures Photos to allow you to shoot in that beautiful light that is only available in the summer. It is 5 hours and starts at 2:00pm running through till 7:30pm with a short break.
 
In common with my other bird of prey workshops this one is held at a private bird of prey centre in North Northamptonshire which provides the opportunity to photograph a truly unique range of birds. Unlike most other centres most of these birds are trained and actively used for hunting so are in excellent condition, very keen and fit. Uniquely for falconry centres they are kept with the minimum of equipment making semi natural shots all the easier and much more realistic. The centre itself is located in the centre of a splendid 3,000 acre private estate providing us with excellent opportunities to photograph birds in a wide range of natural settings. We will have access to the whole of the estate and working with the owner and head falconer I will have selected a number of natural settings for us to use to photograph the birds.
 
In addition to static shots we will have the opportunity to practise more taxing flight shots. We will start by encouraging some species to fly the same path repeatedly thus enabling you to practice and fine tune your tracking abilities before attempting to photograph the large falcons the true high speed masters.
 
To ensure that everyone gets the best angles and opportunities when taking photos numbers on this trip will be strictly limited. The day starts at 2:00pm and runs through to 7:30pm with entrance fee, tea, coffee and all tuition included.
