Bird Of Prey Photography Days
In The Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire
with Photographer Steve Coomes
Photographing birds of prey in the wild, is wonderful. Although it can be challenging and frustrating, if you are not prepared. Our photography days are designed for photographers of all levels of expertise, looking to practice and finesse the skill of photographing birds of prey in both static and flying compositions. The day offers the opportunity to be better prepared, for the next time out photographing wild birds of prey. Or if you are very comfortable with capturing wild birds of prey in flight, the day offers a chance to photograph some different raptors in stunning locations.
We have a beautiful location for you. The historical and simply stunning Thoresby Park, in Nottinghamshire, part of Sherwood Forest is the perfect place. Thoresby provides a wide variety of natural habitats to photograph in and we aim to respond to the weather conditions and seasons so that every workshop provides different opportunities.
Each day features around 10 birds, with a mixture of native and non-native species. We start at 10:30am and finish around 4pm. The day starts indoors with an illustrated talk, with photographer Steve Coomes, who will be on hand throughout day, if you need assistance. The short talk by Steve, focuses on camera settings and composition. You will then head out to meet the birds and start by taking static, portrait and flying shots of the birds in beautiful natural settings.
As the day progresses, after lunch, we move onto the more challenging flight shots, with a wide range of birds and flying styles, in different environments.
We aim to keep group sizes to around 6 photographers. If you would like to have someone come with you to spectate, this is no problem – we do limit one spectator for each photographer, to keep the group as small as possible.
