Framed in a broken window, the barn owl photographed during a NaturesLens Birds of Prey Workshop in Mid Wales

We conduct our Birds of Prey workshop in Mid-Wales for many reasons, the main one being that our falconer is also a farmer who has a great photographic eye. He has also allowed some of his buildings to fall into rack & ruin to give us some fabulous settings for our photography workshop.

Amanda joined our Autumn Birds of Prey workshop as part of her birthday treat. It was her first time attending a photography workshop, but as you can see, Amanda has a real talent!

By spot metering on the owl’s chest, she was able to achieve a studio-like image of the barn owl.

An image of one of the kestrels, perched on a gate post, captured by Ian Roberts, on the NaturesLens Autumn Birds of Prey Photography Workshop

We ran our Autumn Birds of Prey workshop a little later than usual to try & get more autumnal colours. Ian enjoyed our Spring Birds of Prey workshop so much that he decided to join us again.

The workshop started with our usual 2 hours Saturday taster session. The weather forecast didn’t look great, so we brought the workshop forward to avoid the worst of the rain.

We kept the sessions short so that the birds wouldn’t get too wet. Some, like the peregrine falcon & kestrel, didn’t seem to be bothered by the rain as you can see below. I love how Ian has captured the water on the birds’ heads.

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.
