Course Description

The theme of this course is Spring. Your sessions in the classroom during the evenings will be accompanied by a Saturday on location at a Nottinghamshire nature reserve where you will photograph the wild flowers, colourful invertebrates and birdlife that are plentiful at this time of year.

**For this course we'll be visiting two reserves close to each other: wilwell farm cutting and wilford clay pits, for dragonflies, butterflies, wild flowers and migrant birds.**

There will be plenty of opportunities to capture some amazing moments with your camera. There will plenty of mistakes and missed opportunities, but all part of what will be a fun and valuable experience of real wildlife photography.

On this course you will:

  • learn a range of natural history photography techniques so that you can master the perfect shot
  • be involved in practical workshops and interactive lectures
  • undertake group critiques of your work.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have a unique understanding of wildlife photography and its demands as well as rewards.

This course is ideal if you are building a portfolio for future employment or studies in photography, or else it is perfect for amateurs and professionals who simply want to immerse themselves in the subject.
