This workshop is held within a private pine and mixed woodland with easy parking on site, car sharing is advised from meeting point carpark to workshop location 3 miles. 

We have a selection of static and flying Raptors from Hawks Eagles and Owls but please note if the birds do not wish to fly we can force them to, the birds are set in areas within the woodlands perch on pine trees or on rocks, 

We may have 2 to 3 birds out at once perched around you, 

When we fly the birds IE the Bald  eagle then we will put away the static birds as this eagle likes to fly around from tree to tree freely (when she's in the mood) 

We may not have all the Raptors pictured and we may have Raptors not pictures as we use some Raptors that are part of a breeding programme, fingers crossed this year for a male Hobby. 

You will also get the chance of holding one of the Raptors on a glove after the workshop and i will use your camera if you want some images taken. 

Partners are welcome to come along for free but PLEASE no cameras,  photos can be taken on mobile phone   

We will be looking at camera settings and the right settings for birds in flight and right tracking modes, WB and right colour balance with exposure 

Light plays a big part in photography so we will be looking how light from different angles  can make and change your images,

these workshops are designed for the photographer to practise their skills in photography and learn how to use the right settings at the right time and by using captive birds gives you plenty of chances to get it right,
