Kingfisher Photography Workshop


The Kingfisher is arguably the UK’s most stunning bird  and is very high on every wildlife photographers wish list. Paul is offering you the chance to join him photographing these fantastic birds with tuition. If you are a keen photographer looking for some tips on better composition, or simply advice on how best to use your camera in wildlife photography situations, whilst taking home some images that you are really pleased with then this would make the ideal photography day for you.

We will be doing perched photographs with them eating fish and preening in front of us, and diving shots with them coming out of the water, hopefully with a fish in there beaks.

Equipment and Clothing:

A 400-500mm lens is needed for perched photos, and a 200mm lens for diving kingfisher shots. For diving kingfisher you will also need a long shutter release lead or a remote control shutter release. On a good day there can be many sightings back and fourth from the perch so make sure you have enough space on memory cards and a spare battery. You will also need a tripod, it can be muddy, so suitable footwear is needed and as you are not moving around much, extra warm clothing may be required.

The workshop is £250.00 for a 1-1. £120.00 each for a 2-1. I have a spare canon camera and lens that can be borrowed if needed.
