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 Alan & Ian, 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, Alan & Ian, 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. 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!
