'Basic Wildlife Photography'


Next course: To be announced.

The next course will not take place until sometime in the spring of 2014.
Please email if you are interested in receiving details.

This is a one day workshop which will get you started with wildlife photography.
In the morning our resident photographers Gary Beers and Ross Andrews will teach you some
of their valuable tips and tricks for setting up your camera, finding a subject and designing images. This will be illustrated by some of their images.

Following this there will be a rare opportunity for a tour of the hospital
while it is working.

In the afternoon you will have the chance to put into practice what you have learned with
practical sessions – these are likely to include a perched falconer’s bird of prey, and some
of the current patients.

There will then be a final session in the classroom on the basics of processing your images.

We will be limiting the number of delegates to 8 so everybody will have the best opportunities
to learn, ask questions and get some great images to take home.

The workshop is designed for photographers with advanced compact cameras, bridge cameras
(these are the ones that have an electronic viewfinder), or digital SLRs, but anyone with a
digital camera with at least a 3x zoom (the bigger the better!) should be able to get a lot
out of the day.
Users of film cameras are also very welcome! Unfortunately camera phones will not be suitable.

The minimum age is 16

The cost of the workshop is £60 which will include tea and coffee, but not lunch.
Full payment must be made at the time of booking.
The workshop will be held in our Education Centre and around the hospital grounds.
All proceeds will be going to the Hospital.

The next course will take place on: Sunday 15th September 2013.
Please email if you are interested in booking a place.
