We have two photography sessions, one, for several hours on the evening of Saturday 8th October, followed by a full day on Sunday 9th October. This is with a falconer that we have worked with for the last 4 year; this year, we are hoping for some autumnal colours & settings for the owls & other birds of prey, we will focus mainly on British species, but the fantastic Great Grey Owl will, of course, be making at least one appearance as well.

Phil, who is guiding the NaturesLens White Tailed Sea Eagle Winter Photography Holiday in January has provided us with some more photos of the kind of images that our clients should be able to secure themselves if they join him in Poland during mid-January 2015. The eagles themselves are impressive, but against such a stark landscape they should look even more so.

The behaviour that singles out this site & makes the opportunities so special for White Tailed Sea Eagle winter photography, is that any gathering of eagles in these large numbers invariably leads to fights over the supplementary food put out for them. If we are lucky enough to get snow for our visit, then the fighting can reach frenzied levels, and leads to incredible photographic opportunities.

Our Welsh Birds of Prey workshop has now been moved to September to enable our guests to photograph the birds in stunning autumnal colours. Since this is the fourth year we have run this workshop, we decided it was time for a change to keep things fresh & interesting.

The location for this Welsh Birds of Prey workshop is a 500-acre working farm in mid Wales with stunning natural backgrounds, natural perches, derelict buildings, open fields & a fantastic quarry providing wonderful colours & textures for a variety of shots.

Blue Cypress Lake Osprey Photography Holiday

We have just posted the event page & details for an osprey photography holiday, ospreys are a favourite subject of ours, nesting, diving & skimming the lochs of the Scottish Highlands, they were one of the first subjects that both pushed our abilities & gave us an adrenalin rush, our latest tour ventures further afield than Scotland however; we are heading to Blue Cypress Lake in Florida, where there are between 200 & 300 osprey nests located in the cypress trees around the lake itself.

The timing of the trip is deliberate so that we can observe the parents bringing fish to their new offspring. We should be able to photograph Ospreys on their nests at eye level, diving for fish or gathering nest material. Continue reading
