Autumn & Winter Birds Photography Workshops

Throughout Autumn/Winter the Yorkshire Coast is a hotspot for sea ducks, divers, grebes, white-winged gulls and waders. The inland lakes and pools are a strong holding for wintering waterfowl, with large numbers of ducks and geese moving in and along the coast.
Our knowledge of the Yorkshire Coast will take you to the best places along this beautiful coastline ensuring your chances of obtaining some lovely images.

This workshop is ideal for those wanting to learn more about their cameras and for gaining a good understanding of the principles and technique involved in wildlife photography. Shutter speed, ISO settings, aperture, depth of field, angles, composition and approaching subjects are all covered. This workshop is also ideal for more experienced photographers looking to find and photograph new species and learn about fieldcraft and behaviours of these different species.
Sometimes the weather can be challenging on the Yorkshire Coast as we look at these elements, so we work on how to adjust the camera settings to compensate.
Please note: If you would like to attend on a particular date listed below, but would prefer a different type of workshop, e.g. half day, group etc., please contact us and we may be able to accommodate you.
