Arden Falconry has teamed up with local wildlife photographer Ashley Grove, to offer you the chance to spend a day learning how to photograph Birds of Prey.
Whatever your level of experience, you’ll be able to take your time, to get well composed, natural images of our stunning birds, with advice from the expert photographer. Our location provides an ideal site for some natural wild location images and we will use a variety of birds including Barn Owls, Tawny Owls, Little Owl, Merlin and Kestrel.
Course numbers are limited to 10 people, so you have ample opportunity to receive expert advice on taking photos of birds perched and in flight.
Days start at 10am and finish at 4.00pm with a break for lunch. Lunch is not included, so bring along a packed lunch.
We would recommend using a digital SLR camera, although it is possible to get good photos with a bridge or compact camera for the perched birds. Lens choice for those with a SLR camera would be a short zoom, ideally between 24 and 200mm and between 200mm and 600mm for flight shots.
Our next workshop will take place on 20th June 2020, places are limited so contact us to book your place.
NEW - Night Owl Photography Workshop
On this NEW workshop we will work with captive bred owls and photograph them in an indoor area, using a multi flash set up, to get some truly atmospheric images of these wonderful birds.
We will provide all the necessary flash equipment, so all you need to bring is a DSLR camera with a lens of ideally between 50mm and 150mm. if you have a tripod, please bring it along, if you don't we can provide one.
We start the workshop at 6pm, through until 9pm, thus avoiding any unwanted daylight that may effect the images.
If you need any more information about the day, do get in touch. Full venue directions and further instruction will be given upon booking.
This workshop will take place on 3rd September 2019, places are limited so contact us to book your place.
