    Welsh Birds of Prey Photography Workshop

    For the fourth year running, NaturesLens are running a Birds of Prey Photography Workshop at the venue that we use in Mid-Wales.

    For 2015, the NaturesLens Welsh Birds of Prey Photography Workshop is timed to allow for the photography of the birds in autumnal coloured woodlands. Accompanied by a dedicated falconer, this is a fantastic opportunity for photographers of all levels of ability to get up close & personal with some amazing & charismatic avian predators both perched & in flight. Female Buzzard looking down on kill as photographed during the NaturesLens Welsh Birds of Prey Photography workshop Our highly experienced falconer who is always present, may even be able to accommodate special requests. We have access to plenty of beautiful backgrounds, natural perches, derelict buildings, fields, fencing & a fantastic quarry setting to ensure a good variety of shots.

Photograph taken during the NaturesLens Welsh Birds of Prey Photography workshop There will be a mix of flying & static shots – we will endeavour to make use of a selection of the following species Buzzard, Red Kite, Peregrine, Merlin, Hobby, Tawny Owl, Kestrel, Long Eared Owl & a brief session with the Short Eared Owl, plus at the end of the day we will have allowed time for photography of the Great Grey Owl – for this beautiful bird, you will have the opportunity for both perched & in-flight shots. Flying Great Grey Owl photographed during the NaturesLens Welsh Birds of Prey Photography workshop The photography sessions will take place in a variety of locations, but should include the quarry backdrop, derelict farm buildings, autumnal coloured woodlands, old moss covered trees, fencing & farm gates covered with lichen. Little Owl on mossy tree photographed during the NaturesLens Welsh Birds of Prey Photography workshop You will be able to get incredibly close to most of these charismatic birds of prey for some eye level frame filling portraits with natural backgrounds. But you are not limited to portrait shots alone, birds in their natural environment shots are also a key part of the workshop. Our falconer will do his best to hide the jesses to make the shots look as natural as possible. Long Eared Owl peering around tree.
