NaturesLens invites amateur & semi-professional wildlife photographers to experience the wonders of Welsh rural landscapes, capturing beautiful images of birds of prey against stunning backdrops on a variety of natural perches. This workshop is designed to give you a wide range of photography opportunities to hone your composition & birds in flight skills.

Pui Hang Miles will provide guidance & advice when needed to assist you in obtaining outstanding images to add to your portfolio. Booking early is essential as spaces are limited.

NaturesLens invites you on 1 ½ day birds of prey photography workshop, based in Welshpool, capturing impressive images of birds of prey using the varied backdrops which the locality has to offer; including disused quarries, barn & farm areas & expanses of woodland. Pui Hang Miles will offer advice to ensure that you obtain magnificent photographs of these bird species both posed & in-flight.

Autumn brings rich textures & colours to rural areas, as the leaves turn to red, gold & brown, & begin to form a soft blanket which covers the ground. This provides a stunning backdrop for nature photography, & the soft light & warm colours will allow you to capture breathtaking images of bird species. 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.

Our falconer, who is also a farmer, will allow you extensive access to his land over the course of the birds of prey photography workshop, providing you with optimum choice of positions from which you can photograph the charismatic owls & raptors as they are held & released within the perfect controlled setting for you to capture impressive images. He himself 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, followed by a full day of birds of prey photography on Sunday. Shorter days move in during autumn, giving you the chance to use the soft light in our unique late afternoon / early evening session to achieve creative imagery.

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

A Kestrel Amongst The Rocks   An Example An Image That You May Have Opportunities To Capture During The NaturesLens Welsh Birds Of Prey Photography Workshop


Join Ian & Alan, one of the guides for NaturesLens on a photography adventure to the picturesque coastline in Norfolk, home to an impressive population of Atlantic grey seals. Ian & Alan, 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 Grey Seals of Norfolk photography workshop. This photography workshop is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £999 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 Grey Seals 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 Ian & Alan, 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, Ian & Alan, your photography leader will guide you during the photography activities & will be mindful of the seals, 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. Your meals will be warming, homely & plentiful to get you warmed through & filled up after a long day on the beach. Numbers are limited to ensure that the trip is sustainable, ethical & enjoyable for every photographer, so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!
