  • Join NaturesLens for a Spring Birds of Prey Photography Workshop, photographing owls & raptors within their captivating woodland environment. Spring weather conditions offer stunning lighting variety throughout the day, providing unique opportunities to capture stunning images of birds of prey in rural Wales.

    This workshop is ideally suited to both amateur & semi-professional photographers looking to expand their portfolio. NaturesLens leaders will provide guidance & advice when needed to assist you in making the most of every photography opportunity.

    NaturesLens invites you to join Pui Hang Miles on a 1 ½ day birds of prey photography workshop, taking place across varied rural landscapes in mid-Wales capturing impressive images of birds of prey within an expanse of wooded & farmed rural land. Our guides will provide guidance & assist you in interacting with the birds, allowing you to capture magnificent stationary & in-flight images.

    The fresh spring air & green foliage make the setting hugely attractive for photographers, & if we’re lucky, there may even be a bluebell or two. NaturesLens leaders will assist you in honing in your composition & motion photography skills so that you obtain editorial-quality images to cherish for years to come. Over the Saturday afternoon & full day on Sunday you will have abundant opportunity to use the varied lighting conditions & different locations at your disposal.

    We will have extensive access to our falconer’s land over the course of the workshop, providing you with optimum choice of positions from which you can photograph the elusive owls & raptors as they are held & released within the perfect controlled setting for you to capture impressive images. Our falconer has an experienced eye for photography, so he knows what nature photographers will be looking for & will assist accordingly when needed.

    The format of this workshop consists of a special late afternoon/early evening session with an owl on Saturday, giving you an amazing opportunity to get up close to this magnificent bird & take close-up images; followed by a full day of birds of prey photography on Sunday.

    Join us & venture into the expansive rural heartland of Wales, capturing majestic native birds of prey on camera as they thrive in their picturesque natural habitat. Places on our spring workshop are limited to ensure we can provide the best experience for every photographer, so book early to avoid disappointment!
