Bempton Cliffs is home to over 400,000 seabirds from March to September. This is a very exciting place for wildlife photography, with many great opportunities to capture all the species close up, from the birds on the cliff-face to those in flight.

This 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 photography workshop will be tailored towards beginners, enthusiasts and photographers who want to learn more about the different aspects of wildlife photography. We will start with a look at the techniques and equipment needed with advice and tips on how to capture that perfect wildlife image.

You will learn about correct exposure, how to deal with tricky lighting conditions such as harsh sunlight or low light levels, depth of field techniques, apertures, ISO, autofocus, shutter speeds and composition. Advice will be given regarding the different species of seabirds and the incredible seabird colony in which they raise their young.

Facilities: The Seabird Centre includes an interpretation area, shop, toilets, picnic area and five cliff-top viewpoints.
