2015 Dalmatian Pelican Photography Holiday Report

I had planned to write a blog post about each trip as they came to end but as with all the best-laid plans, things did not quite work out that way! So, now, eight months after our return from Greece, here is a report on the 2015 NaturesLens Dalmatian Pelican Photography Holiday

In mid-January, NaturesLens took a group of clients to Greece for a 2-day trip to photograph the Dalmatian Pelicans of Lake Kerkini. Our base was a lovely hotel, 5 minutes walk from the lake itself, with a roaring fire in the bar & lounge area, superb food & each guest had their own room with no single supplement required.

The first morning began with a hearty breakfast after being treated to a special demonstration on how to turn phyllo dough into delicious Bougatsa breakfast pastry. Once we had eaten, we headed out onto the lake in a boat in search of the pelicans.

Join our Skomer Puffin Photography Holidays in 2016

Once again, NaturesLens are proud to be running a pair of three night puffin photography holidays on Skomer Island to photograph the fantastic puffin population – and other wildlife. Our trips for 2014 & 2015 yielded some fantastic images, mainly due to the fact that we are able to stay with our photographic subjects well after the day-trippers have left the island, this, without fail, produces stunning photographs.

During the NaturesLens Puffin Photography Holidays, you will stay on the island in the converted farm buildings which make up the hostel, this is the base for your holiday, we provide food and tuition if you require it; the puffins should be at the height of their season, hopefully producing the famous shot of a puffin with a mouthful of  sandeels.

If you would like to experience one of these superb puffin photography holidays for yourself, you can find the booking pages under the workshops & tours heading, secure a place on the first trip with Drew & Richard, to be held during June 2016, or the second trip with Drew & Daniel in July 2016 … a deposit of £125 holds your place with the balance due in April 2016.

Ospreys Photographic Holiday Place re-available

We have just had a participant advise us that they cannot attend the Ospreys Photographic Holiday that is taking place in Florida during April 2016 – when we put it on the web site, this trip sold out very quickly, but this means that we do now have a single place available again – the main focus of the trip are the stunning ospreys that make their nests on Blue Cypress Lake – but we also have sessions scheduled for many days to photograph snail kites, roseate spoonbills & more. It should be a stunning trip, if you fancy joining us, please view the details of the holiday here. You can hold a place with a deposit, the balance is not due until early 2016, but we are advising people to book flights now, they are cheaper than we’ve seen them for a long time.
