Each of the three days will follow a similar format, in the morning we head out on the boat, travel down the lake, pick up fish for feeding, then feed the pelicans on the way back up the lake; the intent here is to draw the birds away from the shoreline, this is for a couple of reasons, firstly, so that the pelicans fly in towards us for some great flight and landing shots, secondly, to ensure that we have nice clean backgrounds.

Following this boat trip, we return to the hotel for lunch in the early afternoon: at about 3pm we head out for the afternoon shooting session, we drive down the edge of the lake to the location where we perform and capture images of a shoreline feed, we shoot literally until the light is gone. When the light is no more, we return to the hotel, clean up & have an evening meal.

The cost is £949 per person for 2017, with no single supplement & everyone having their own room – no need to share!

Although bookings have only just opened, the trip is already half full, so book a place now.
