NaturesLens offer keen wildlife photographers the chance to encounter the impressive Dalmatian Pelican, photographing the population of this species as they thrive in their picturesque natural habitat; Lake Kerkini in northern Greece.
We have designed an all-encompassing photography experience, ensuring that internal travel & comfortable accommodation are organised for you to ensure that you can focus on making the most of opportunities to capture editorial quality images. Our trips fill up quickly, so ensure that you book early to avoid missing out!
Join NaturesLens to capture images of the charismatic Dalmatian Pelicans, in Greece, during the Kerkini’s Dalmatian Pelicans of Greece photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1199 per participant.
For the past 5 years, NaturesLens has been taking photographers to Lake Kerkini to photograph the charismatic Dalmatian Pelicans; in 2019, join Annette, a member of the NaturesLens guiding team, for a unique wildlife experience, getting up close & personal with the beautiful prehistoric bird that is the Dalmatian Pelican; capturing them on camera within their natural habitat of beautiful Lake Kerkini in northern Greece. This trip encompasses four full days spent getting to know this unique landscape, offering extensive opportunities to photograph these incredible birds, as well as neighbouring wildlife such as the Pygmy Cormorant & the majestic Greater Flamingo.
The Dalmatian Pelican is, by a small margin, the largest of the Pelican species, as well as one of the largest living bird species on earth. These magnificent birds have been in decline in recent years, partly due to habitat destruction on the part of us humans, but thankfully the population at Kerkini has prevailed & still thrives within this perfect haven.
This trip is best suited to those of you with mid-level to advanced photography skills looking for a new challenge. We pride ourselves in offering something special to clients in comparison to other trip providers, so we have coordinated this itinerary to allow you to capture these magnificent birds at sunrise & sunset.
Highlights of the trip include four boat trips on to the lake on consecutive days, four shoreline feeds offering you the chance to get up close to the Dalmatian Pelicans & witness their feeding behaviours, & cosy accommodation in a nearby hotel as an oasis from the harsh winter conditions. All the details are taken care of for you so that you can relax & enjoy this unique wildlife photography adventure.
You will be on the lake before the sun comes up to see the Pelicans at first light, & after the morning’s activities, will break for a warming lunch as a much-needed break from the cold, discussing what the rest of the day will hold. As a group you will then embark on an afternoon of further exciting photography opportunities, remaining on the shoreline of the lake through to early evening to make the most of the changing light conditions. When the day comes to an end, you will return to the comfort of the hotel to relax in front of a roaring fire, freshen up & discuss your achievements from the day.
Annette, one of our photography guides, will lead you throughout this photography tour, providing guidance & advice as needed & helping you develop your skills. Annette will help you capture images of the Dalmatian Pelicans in both wide & close up shots; capturing them in movement while feeding & fighting for fish, interacting with each other or in flight with the impressive backdrop provided by the lake & surrounding snow-capped mountains.
Our group numbers are strictly limited to allow for the highest quality experience for everyone involved, & as this photography is seasonal, we can only offer this trip to a small number of lucky individuals each year. Book early to avoid disappointment!

2019 – Atlantic Puffins of Shetland’s Fair-Isle Photography Holiday

Example of the type of image that you will have opportunities to capture during the NaturesLens Atlantic Puffins of Shetlands Fair isle Photography Holiday
NaturesLens invites amateur & semi-professional wildlife photographers to join Robin, our photography guide, on a 5-day adventure to Fair Isle, Shetland, exploring the remote wilderness of this far-north Scottish island; photographing its fascinating bird residents.
The island offers stunning backdrops of craggy cliffs, crashing waves & windswept grasses, providing the perfect setting for truly mesmerising images to be captured. Spaces are restricted due to the nature of the trip & for the optimum enjoyment of each guest, so booking early is essential.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of the comical Atlantic puffin, in United Kingdom, during the Atlantic Puffins of Shetland’s Fair-Isle photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1099 per participant.
Join NaturesLens on a journey to the remote region of Shetland in northern Scotland, to spend 5 days on Fair Isle to capture magnificent images of native wildlife & impressive landscapes. The focus species of this trip is the atlantic puffin, & you will have abundant opportunities to observe & photograph these adorable birds as they thrive in their unspoilt island habitat.
Once home to Viking Warlords, the island of Fair Isle is now dominated by its wildlife population rather than its mere 70 inhabitants. This trip offers unrivalled access to an outstanding population of seabirds which live on the tiny island, & the isle’s status as an internationally renowned bird observatory gives an indication of the potential quality of wildlife opportunities. This trip is unique in that it is designed & led by photographers, for photographers, allowing us to work with you, ensuring that you obtain incredible images to treasure for years to come.
Fair Isle offers hugely varied conditions for photography, as the nature of fast-changing island weather means that in summer you could find yourself bathing in sunshine one moment, & shrouded in fog the next. Over the 5 days your images will benefit from varied lighting & weather conditions, with photography sessions covering dawn through to dusk. We have designed a flexible itinerary to allow photography of other native wildlife as well as landscape shots, giving photographers the chance to explore the island & make the trip their own.
Your NaturesLens guides will provide advice on composition, technique & species behaviour to enable you to achieve the best possible images, making the most of this rich & dramatic environment & the bustling activity of its residents. Fair Isle offers a unique opportunity to experience an environment truly ruled by its winged inhabitants, & group sizes must be kept small so book early to avoid missing out!

2019 – Atlantic Puffins of Skomer Photography Holiday

An Atlantic Puffin With A Beak Full Of Sand Eels   Photographed During The NaturesLens Atlantic Puffins Of Skomer Island Photography Holiday
Join Ian & Robin on wild Skomer, photographing the ‘clowns of the sea’; puffins, as they thrive within their unspoilt island habitat. We offer amateur & semi-professional photographers the chance to stay overnight on the island, spending mornings, afternoons & evenings within the landscape, making the most of the scenic backdrop & varied light conditions that the island offers.
During this trip of 4 nights duration, you will be led by Ian & Robin, navigating the island & using prime viewpoints to capture stunning imagery to add to your portfolio.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of the comical Atlantic puffin, in United Kingdom, during the Atlantic Puffins of Skomer photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 4 night/5 day duration on a Half Board, Shared basis & costs £699 per participant.
For the past 6 years, NaturesLens has been taking photographers to Skomer Island; in 2019, join Ian & Robin on a remote wildlife adventure, getting up close to puffins on the unspoilt island of Skomer, where their population thrives. These special birds are considered by many to be a national treasure. Their behaviour & characteristics are hugely exciting to photograph, such as their short wings that they use to dip & dive underwater, ‘flying’ to catch fish. The large population of puffins has been able to flourish here thanks to minimal disruption of the island environment by humans, as well as the lack of threat from native predators.
We have refined this trip to give individuals the best possible exposure to these island birds, spending hours navigating the few paths which exist on Skomer to capture impressive images of the puffins surrounded by dramatic cliffs & crashing waves. Staying overnight gives you the opportunity to photograph these birds in a wide variety of lighting conditions, & your photography will also benefit from the calm that falls when the day-trippers leave the island. This unrivalled access to the island environment provides opportunities to experiment with light & be more creative with your photography, as well as witness late night visits from Manx Shearwaters.
The island environment & surrounding coastline are home to a wide range of species other than puffins, including razorbills, guillemots; who make their home in the cliffs & headlands which border the island. These contrast with the more sheltered inlets that border the island, which is home to seals & other mammal populations. You will have extensive opportunities to witness these additional species within their rugged & unspoilt island home, whilst maintaining the puffins as the focus of photography excursions.
We have taken care to make things as simple for you as possible to ensure you enjoy the trip. Therefore we organise the boat to & from the island, plus breakfast & dinner are provided. This trip gives individuals the chance to experience ‘off the grid’ living; to really escape, relax, & become immersed in this unique & remote environment.
Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment!
