Intensive Great Grey Owl Photography Workshop

We are pleased to announce an intensive Great Grey Owl photography workshop on the evening prior to our main September Welsh Birds of Prey Photography Workshop, on 27th September 2015. It is our intention for this workshop to focus on an extended session with a beautiful Great Grey Owl, an owl which is always a favourite subject on our owl workshops. The emphasis will be on pushing the boundaries of what is possible with this stunning bird. The Great Grey Owl or Great Gray Owl is a very large owl, documented as the world’s largest species of owl by length. It is distributed across the Northern Hemisphere. Great Grey Owl in flight as photographed during the NaturesLens Great Grey Owl Photography workshop

Reserve a place on the NaturesLens Great Grey Owl Photography in Evening Light Photography Workshop, with a deposit of only £50, your balance will be due August 2015.
The 2 – 2½ hour Great Grey Owl Photography workshop will begin with us capturing images of this striking owl on some perches & old posts. For the next part of the workshop, we will relocate to some nearby woodland & photograph our subject in it’s natural habitat, including hopefully the elusive peeking round the tree shot. Staying on or on the edges of the woodland, we will try for some flight shots. These can be challenging but generally work brilliantly, affording attendees some amazing shots which show off the wing span of the bird. At this point the Great Grey Owl will be fed, allowing for some great shots of the bird feeding, but you have to be quick!

The event page has just been published & contains a booking form for those who might wish to join us on this specialist workshop. Please note: should the bird not be available, we will substitute in either a barn owl or a little owl & make use of farm buildings & abandoned machinery instead of the woodland locations.
