Course Description

The theme of this course is Autumn.

Your sessions in the classroom on the two Saturdays will be accompanied by a Sunday on location in a Nottinghamshire park where you'll photograph the rutting deer, the changing colour of the leaves and the ornamental fungi that has begun to pop up.

There'll be plenty of opportunities to capture some amazing moments with your camera.

There'll be plenty of mistakes and missed opportunities, but all part of what'll 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'll have a unique understanding of wildlife photography and its demands as well as rewards.

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

“I just wanted to say thank-you for the autumn short course you did last year. Off the back of that, I have gone on to obtain a scholarship for a Masters in photography, specialising in wildlife. I can guarantee that I wouldn't have even thought about doing photography without completing your short-course. So thank-you.”
