Workshop Synopsis

This unique workshop is held at a bird of prey centre, 10 miles north of Northampton town, where the birds are trained and actively used for falconry training, experiences and hunting so are in excellent condition, very keen and very fit. These birds are looked after by expert falconers and maintained as active flying birds unlike many at other centres who are kept for exhibitions and flying displays.
 
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.
 
The centre has a wide range of different raptors including many species of owls, falcons from the kestrel right up to the magnificent Peregrine and other Falcons aswell as a selection of owls 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 but will use parts where locations can mirror those where the birds would be naturally found. Working with the head falconer I will select a number of natural settings for us to use to photograph the birds on each particular day, and we will have ample opportunities to photograph a wide and challenging range of birds.
 
As a falconer and professional wildlife photographer with considerable experience with birds of prey I will provide tuition appropriate to the bird and scenario throughout the workshop.

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 10:00am and runs through to 5.00pm with entrance fee, tea, coffee and all tuition included.
 
Cost £140
