Summer Wildlife Photography Course @ The Nature Discovery Centre
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Photo by Bob Coyle

Photograph the summer wetland wildlife with practical guidance and tuition from wildlife photographer Iain Green. Discover and learn about seasonal specialties of the reserve and how to photograph them. A practical course, the day will begin with an introductory session inside, before heading out to explore. Suitable for both beginner and intermediate photographers, the tuition is tailored to suit. Due to the small numbers on the course there will be plenty of time for individual tuition. During the day we will learn how to photograph breeding bird life and stunning scenery and enjoy some creative photography. We will explore colour, texture and the form of the natural landscape in Spring.

This course is suitable for anyone who would like to improve their photography skills or those who are new to photography and are mystified by the settings and buttons on the camera! The course is aimed primarily at adults but older children accompanied by an adult would be welcome.

Please come dressed for the weather, the terrain around the Centre and nature reserve is fairly level but can be uneven and muddy, so please wear sturdy footwear.

Please bring you camera and instructions if you have them. The course fee includes refreshments throughout the day, lunch and afternoon tea. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
