Wildlife Photography Course at Pensthorpe natural park

Wildlife Photography Course at Pensthorpe natural park

This full-day photography course (over seven hours of tuition) will focus primarily on how to get great wildlife images. Pensthorpe natural park offers fantastic opportunities to learn and practise the photography skills needed to shoot wildlife images with real impact.

We will cover the technical side of wildlife photography such as controlling depth of field, focusing modes for wildlife photography, avoiding camera- shake when using long focal lengths, exposure modes for wildlife photography, exposure histogram, white balance and choosing the right shutter speed.

We will also look at composition, use of light for wildlife photography and how to approach and plan a wildlife photography trip.

Pensthorpe offers so many varied habitats for wildlife photography. From wetland areas, woodland photography hides, to the resident populations of flamingoes and photogenic wading birds. Along with learning how to take great wildlife pictures you will also go home with some very memorable wildlife images. 

A full set of comprehensive notes will be sent to you at the end of the course.

There will also be time to look at more general techniques such as achieving a big depth of field for landscape photography and close-up photography. The varied habitats of Pensthorpe really lend themselves to many types of photography.  The number of students on the day will be limited to no more than six – this means that Steve can get around to everyone and personally tailor their learning experience.

The cost of this course is £99.00 per person for the day, which includes entry into Pensthorpe Natural park. 

We meet at 9.30am at the Courtyard Café for a quick coffee before entering Pensthorpe the day concludes at 5pm.
