Clients photos from Specialist Raptor Photography day
 

This unique workshop is held at a raptor centre in North Northamptonshire where the birds are trained and actively used for hunting so are in excellent condition, very keen and very fit. Unlike many other centres and because these are working birds many are kept with the minimum of equipment making semi natural shots all the easier and much more realistic.
 
The centre has a wide range of different raptors including many species of owls, falcons from the small Merlin right up to the magnificent Gyr Falcon, a wide selection of eagles and hawks. It is part 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 have selected a number of natural settings for us to use to photograph the birds. During the day we will have ample opportunities to photograph a range of birds, from owls to magnificent eagles and challengingly fast falcons.
 
As your wildlife photographer guide I will be on hand all day to assist by explaining relevant techniques, camera settings etc. to help you to master the lighting and composition for static shots or the more complex focusing and tracking techniques required for successful flight shots.
