When discussing the workshop with Sean, he reinforced the fact that strong images can be captured at the end of the day, as well as the start; this lead us to develop the idea of an overnight workshop that will, hopefully, add a selection of fantastic rutting red deer & stag images to all our workshop participants photography portfolios.

Sean has been awarded a number of times in the British Wildlife Photography Awards for his stunning red deer imagery & this is your chance to learn from Sean himself on an evening session, then a following morning session – light allowing, you will be capturing images similar to the following:

Black Grouse Lek Photography in Scotland

, ,
Calling Black Grouse photographed in the Scottish Highlands during lekking season

One of our personal highlights during 2014 was photographing Black Grouse in Scotland. We have photographed lekking black grouse before at a number of sites, but 2014 was very special! The setting for these sessions of black grouse photography was perfect & the conditions all came together. We are now able to offer this to others, but why stop at just Black Grouse Lek photography? Our trip consists of a packed pair of days which will allow you to also photograph red grouse & the ptarmigan, (a white grouse variant), plus we have great accommodation lined up & some of the best backdrops you could hope for.
