You can join Sean Weekly, who is leading this workshop for us for 6 days & venture to the coastal region of Lincolnshire, photographing the impressive Atlantic grey seal within this bleak & dramatic landscape. You will stay in a hired cottage, which will provide you with comfort & convenience so that you can focus on obtaining photographs that you will cherish for years to come. You will benefit from private access to a secluded beach, which is used by the seals, which provides excellent viewpoints from which to capture them on camera as they rest & interact with one another.

There will be two main photography sessions per day; one early session as the sun comes up & the second taking place in the late afternoon & evening as the sun goes down, both giving you the chance to make the most of varied lighting & tidal conditions with your photography. Our unique & private accommodation provides the opportunity for an ethical approach to photographing the Atlantic grey seal colonies without compromising the welfare of these iconic mammals.

A New Atlantic Grey Seals Photography Holiday for 2017

,

Sean & I have been planning this photography offering for a while, & we’re now ready to announce the details of the NaturesLens Atlantic Grey Seals Photography Holiday that will be taking place during November 2017, which will be lead by Sean for NaturesLens.

When discussing ideas for the photography holiday, we decided that rather than it be one or two days, what we really wanted to offer was something immersive, something that would allow for the capture of strong images at both the beginning & the end of the day. We wanted to be able to offer an experience away from the crowds that gather to photograph the seals & their newborn pups, we wanted to offer something that would allow for intimate photos of the seals in an unhurried & respectful fashion. This lead us to develop the idea of a week long residential offering that will, hopefully, enable our participants to add a selection of fantastic male & female seal images & of course, those of their the young seal pups to their photography portfolios.

The NaturesLens Atlantic Grey Seals Photography Holiday is held in a secluded location in Lincolnshire.

The Atlantic Grey Seals Photography Holiday has places for only 3 participants. The workshop includes 7 nights accommodation on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis, in a cottage that we have hired. The best part is that the cottage has private access to a secluded beach that the seals make use of. Photography guidance will take place around the two main photography sessions each day, an early morning , pre-dawn session, followed by an late afternoon to early evening session that will run up until sunset. Your meals will be warming, homely affairs – think spaghetti bolognese & similar, we will ensure that there is plenty to get you warmed through & filled up after a long day on the beach.

Every day, you will be making a very early start, to take full advantage of the, hopefully, beautiful early morning light. This photography holiday is primarily an opportunity to enjoy photographing wild animals on location in their natural habitat, in an unhurried manner away from the crowds. Sean will be on hand to offer practical advice & guide you to get the best images that you can capture, & make the most of this wonderful opportunity.

Due to the location of the cottage & the private access that we have to the beach, we believe that this approach avoids the issues that have plagued seal photography, notably at Donna Nook, in recent years, but at all times, our photography holiday leader, Sean, will be mindful to ensure that the seals are not disturbed, are kept a respectful distance from & in no way is the seal pups welfare compromised. For this very reason, our lens recommendations on this trip will be at the longer end of the range.

The dates for the Atlantic Grey Seals Photography Holiday are 18th – 25th November 2017 – & the cost is £849 for the whole week, including the  accommodation in the cottage, breakfast & dinner, & guidance from Sean on an as needed basis. If you’re confident & achieving what you want, then our leaders will not hassle you!
