The rivers of Washington on the Eastern coast of the United States runs through some of North America’s most dramatic scenery; the forests are home to diverse wildlife species, including the Bald Eagle, the rivers provide a fantastic spawning habitat for salmon. It is the only large river system in Washington that contains healthy populations of all five native salmon species & two species of trout.

NaturesLens invites mid-level & experienced wildlife photographers to participate in a new photography holiday, which involves navigating the waterside territory around Concrete, Washington, by boat, to photograph the population of bald eagles that winter in the area.

A Red Deer Stag Amongst The Mist This Image Was Captured On A Previous NaturesLens Red Deer Photography Workshop

If you are considering attending a Deer Photography Workshop during the deer rutting season of autumn 2017, then you should know that we’ll be taking the format, that has worked for us in the past, north for 2017, & they will still be led by Sean Weekly, but for 2017, we fancied a change of scenery & after some recommendations & Sean having looked into matters further, we have decided to relocate the bulk of our workshops for 2017 to Bradgate Park, Leicestershire.

The format is similar to that of 2016; that is an all-day session on the Saturday, starting at 6.15am, after which you return to the hotel accommodation that we have booked, & included as part of the price; last year after the afternoon session, Sean conducted some image review sessions of the deer images captured earlier that day or provided a quick lesson in Lightroom processing in the evenings. The following morning, an early start sees you locating the deer & aiming for those classic deer images that Sean is well known for. After several hours of capturing images of the red deer, a break for breakfast that again we include in the price. The Sunday session continues until mid-to-late afternoon.

Creative red deer & stag imagery can be achieved not only during the magical “golden hour” but also, if the weather is kind, in the short time after the golden light period. In fact, this is probably the best time to do something really innovative with light & composition as evidenced here by Sean’s stunning, award winning images.

We have always maintained that strong images can be achieved at the end of the day as well as at the start of the day which is why holidays such as our Dalmatian Pelicans of Lake Kerkini offer late afternoon to sunset sessions (weather & light permitting) & we also offer afternoon to late evening Birds of Prey workshops. Sean’s beautiful images lend further credence to this belief.

As noted on another blog post, Sean Weekly has joined our leading team, & we will be announcing a series of workshops & photography holidays that he will be leading over the next year. Hopefully this will be a long & fruitful relationship, as we have been talking about events for several future years with him; but right now, we’d like to announce the details of the Red Deer in Rut Photography Workshop that he will be leading for us in October 2016.

When discussing the workshop with Sean, he reinforced the fact that strong images can be captured at the end of the day, as well as the start; this lead us to develop the idea of an overnight workshop that will, hopefully, add a selection of fantastic rutting red deer & stag images to all our workshop participants photography portfolios.

Sean has been awarded a number of times in the British Wildlife Photography Awards for his stunning red deer imagery & this is your chance to learn from Sean himself on an evening session, then a following morning session – light allowing, you will be capturing images similar to the following:
