2022 – Welsh Puffins of Skomer Island Photography Holiday

An Atlantic Puffin Silhouetted On One Of The Headlands   Photographed During The NaturesLens Welsh Puffins Of Skomer Island WIldlife Photograhpy Holiday
Join Robin on wild Skomer, photographing the ‘clowns of the sea’; atlantic puffins, as they thrive within their unspoilt island habitat. We offer keen wildlife photographers the chance to spend 3 nights on the island, making the most of the scenic backdrop & varied light conditions that the island offers.
Over 3 days you will be led by Robin Lowry a member of the NaturesLens guiding team, navigating the island & using the best viewpoints to capture stunning images to add to your portfolio.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of comical Atlantic puffin, in United Kingdom, during the Welsh Puffins of Skomer Island photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 3 night/4 day duration on a Half Board, Shared basis & costs £599 per participant.
Join Robin on a remote wildlife adventure, getting up close to the atlantic puffin on the wild & 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 inspiring 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.
For the past 7 years, NaturesLens has been taking photographers to Skomer Island; we have perfected 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 stunning 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 is home to a wide range of species other than puffins, including razorbills, guillemots, all of whom 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.
This trip gives individuals the chance to experience ‘off the grid’ living; to really escape from the modern world, relax, & become immersed within this unique & remote environment.
Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment!
Photographable Species: atlantic puffin, little owl, short-eared owl

2021 – Seals & Pups of Norfolk Photography Holiday

Join Robin on a photography adventure to the picturesque coastline in Norfolk, home to an impressive population of Atlantic grey seals. Robin, our experienced photography leader will guide you throughout, assisting you in capturing stunning images of the Grey Seals, these endearing animals, whilst respecting their fragile natural habitat.
Sustainability is a key issue when it comes to photographing seals in this region, so NaturesLens have designed this photography trip to provide brilliant wildlife photography opportunities whilst behaving in a way which does not pose any threat to the native wildlife & environment. This trip is suited to both amateur & semi-professional photographers looking to add magnificent images of coastal wildlife to their portfolio.
Book early as space is limited.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of the Grey Seals & their pups, in United Kingdom, during the Seals & Pups of Norfolk photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Shared basis & costs £749 per participant.
NaturesLens invites wildlife photographers to join a five night, six day photography holiday to the coastal areas of Norfolk, spending a week undertaking Seal & Pup photography 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 beautiful images to add to your portfolio.
Shooting from dawn to dusk under the guidance of Robin, you will learn techniques that ensure that you leave with some stunning images captured throughout the days on the beach. The cottage we use is located very close to the beach & dunes, which are used by the seals. The cottage location means no long walks to the seals & ensures excellent viewpoints from which to capture them on camera as they rest & interact with one another.
Wildlife photography of the Atlantic grey seal population has been a contentious issue in recent years, & therefore ethical & respectful photography practices are necessary to ensure that the seals & the environment do not come to any harm. NaturesLens have put together this photography holiday with issues of sustainability & animal welfare in mind by designing a schedule which allows wildlife enthusiasts to undertake Grey Seals photography first-hand & capture memorable images, all the while being mindful of their welfare & what precautions are necessary to protect their natural habitat.
There will be two main photography sessions per day; one early session from before the sun comes up & the second taking place in the late afternoon & evening as the sun goes down to make the most of different lighting & tidal conditions.
At all times, Robin, your photography leader will guide you during the photography activities & will be mindful of the seals & pups, preventing any disturbance of the animals by keeping at a safe distance from both adults & pups, while using longer lenses to capture the best possible images.
This holiday includes five nights accommodation in a gorgeous cottage on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis. Numbers are limited to ensure that the trip is sustainable, ethical & enjoyable for every photographer, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!

Join NaturesLens on a journey to the remote region of Shetland in northern Scotland, to spend 5 night 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 the puffins of Shetland 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 nights, 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 the Puffins of Shetland, & group sizes must be kept small so book early to avoid missing out!
