An intensive day with your camera photographing wildlife is a superb way to improve and perfect your photographic techniques and an excellent opportunity to take some superb photos.
A workshop where you are taught in small groups techniques and approaches by a skilled experienced teacher and photographer is the very best way to hone and develop your skills.
Over the last 50 plus years, I have had the great good fortune to learn from some fantastic photographers and value it enormously. As an experienced wildlife photographer and educationalist, I enjoy sharing this knowledge and experience with small groups on my workshops. A workshop with Natures Photos isn’t just a chance to take good photos, but also a chance to learn and hone the skills you need to take better photographs in the future too. This is very important to me and I limit the numbers so that I can personally support and assist you as required. All my workshops are carefully tailored to support everyone from the novice photographer to those who are considerably more experienced. If your requirement is more specific, I also offer 1–1 sessions where I explore and teach specific techniques and skills. Please contact me at email@example.com to discuss possibilities and options.
My aim in all my workshops is quite simple; to help you master many of the field techniques required of a competent wildlife photographer and to come away having improved your technique, your confidence, your knowledge of the subjects and some memorable images.

This amazing location offers the very best opportunities for photographing British wildlife. The centre has been especially created with large enclosures designed specifically with photographers in mind. I have many years of experience working with the centre and am well known to the owner and staff. As a result, we will have the centre to ourselves and privileged access into the pens with some of the animals, so there are no barriers or wire obscuring your view! I keep numbers to a minimum so that I can teach and support all attending. You will come home with stunning photographs that would be extremely difficult in the wild and have learnt more about your camera and shooting wildlife. Working with the centres staff we also aim to make this an extremely enjoyable day, this is a workshop not to be missed.
Having spent many years studying and photographing our British mammals I know first-hand exactly how difficult this can be. I am therefore thrilled to be able to offer an opportunity to use a private wildlife collection in Devon for this 2 day workshop/safari.
The aim of this workshop/safari is to provide an unparalleled opportunity to British mammals in highly realistic and landscaped surroundings and to learn new techniques and more about your camera. We will have unrestricted access and can spend as much time as we like with any species. As well as the normal range of mammals specialities include the rare European beaver, European Lynx, water shrews and pine marten.
This unique workshop is held at a bird of prey centre 10 miles north of Northampton where the birds are trained and actively used for hunting so are in excellent condition, very keen and very fit.
The centre has a wide range of different raptors including many species of owls, falcons, eagles and hawks. It is part of a 3,000 acre private estate providing us with excellent opportunities to photograph birds in a wide range of natural settings. During the day we will have ample opportunities to photograph a range of birds, from owls to magnificent eagles and fast falcons.
To ensure that everyone gets the best angles and opportunities for photos and so that I can provide as much 1-1 support numbers on this trip will be strictly limited.
This workshop is held at the same venue I use for my specialist raptor workshop in Northamptonshire. It is deliberately scheduled to offer an opportunity to photograph birds of prey 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 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 the afternoon we will photograph birds in unusual situations e.g. on prey and as the light changes we will swap to shooting owls, both static and flying.
Numbers will be kept to a minimum, usually lower than 7, to ensure everyone gets the best opportunities and so that I can provide as much 1-1 tuition as require throughout.
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.
As Britain’s smallest British rodent harvest mice are the only old world mammal to have truly prehensile tails which they use to help them climb. They are extremely active and agile climbers feeding in the stalk zone of long grasses and reeds. I was introduced to this little mouse nearly 50 years ago and I have been fond of and photographed them ever since.
They are truly fascinating and attractive subjects for wildlife photography a project I first undertook 40 years ago but have revisited recently thus have immense experience breeding and photographing them. With all this background I am thrilled to be able to give others the opportunity to photograph them for themselves.
This is a chance to capture some really stunning images and to have some fun at the same time. The workshops are ½ day and I limit the numbers to 2 or 3. I am offering these ½ day workshops at my house in North Northamptonshire within easy access to all the main routes. Morning sessions run from 10am to 12:30pm and afternoon sessions run from 2:00pm to 4:30pm.
Just a word of warning – photographing harvest mice is addictive !
