Monday 7 March – Friday 11 March 2016
Residential workshop based in Old Hunstanton, organised and led by Chris Gomersall. Begins Monday evening, ends Friday morning after breakfast.
Late winter in north Norfolk is usually a reliable time for encounters with hunting barn owls, while there are still plenty of wildfowl and wading birds to be found on the coast.
We shall visit Titchwell, Cley, and other wonderful nature reserves along the Norfolk coast, make use of permanent hides, learn how to stalk bird subjects on foot, and use vehicles as mobile hides. These workshops are designed to give participants greater confidence in their fieldcraft, to foster independence, resourcefulness and responsibiliy in wildlife photography, and to promote the creative process from conception through to successful conclusion. We don’t work with captive subjects or depend on pre-baited sites, preferring to find our own subjects as we go along. Join Chris in one of his favourite photographic locations and try your hand at capturing the essence of Norfolk’s winter birdlife.
Previous bird photography experience desirable, and telephoto lenses of 400mm or longer recommended.
