BEGINNERS wildlife photography workshop

This workshop is aimed at those who are just getting started with Wildlife Photography and would like to have a better understanding of camera settings and the equipment required.

You will be guided through metering, focusing, and drive modes, as well as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. We will look at exposure compensation and how to use a histogram, as well as going through a variety of different shooting techniques to help you improve your Wildlife Photography.

I run my workshops on a 1 to 1 basis, in order to give you my undivided attention, but if you would like to book with a friend, I'm happy to conduct a workshop for 2 people at the same time.

This workshop runs for up to 5 hours, which gives us time to go over camera settings, techniques and equipment, plus have time to find suitable subjects to photograph.

what to bring

  • Your camera. (Ideally a DSLR or Mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses)
  • Any lenses you may own, but for wildlife photography a focal length of around 300mm and greater will give you the best chance to obtain images.
  • Tripod.
  • Spare batteries (fully charged) and memory cards.
  • Clothing suitable for the time of year, but as we live in the UK, waterproofs may be needed at any time.
