Deer Rut Workshop


Deer Rut Photography Workshop

Join me, on a day photographing the annual Red Deer Rut in a fantastic  parkland setting at Studley Royal near Ripon, The park has some amazing Red Deer stags along with Sika and Fallow Deer.

This workshop runs on a One-to-One basis (or a Two-to-One for two photographers that know each other), this reduces disturbance to the deer and allows us to get closer, allowing us to photograph their natural behaviour. It also enables me to offer the best advice on composition and camera settings. We will discuss safety, and i will show you how to make the most of the landscape and light to show off the Deer at their best. 

The park is quite large, and the Deer can move around quite a bit so good footwear is needed, wellies are a good option if it is wet, Waterproof clothing may be needed if rain is forecast. (Dark or muted colours preferred)

Lenses of 200mm and longer are suitable. For lenses over 300mm in length a tripod or monopod is recommended.  There is a cafe on site were we can take a break and discuss and review images.

Although the park is open all year, the best time for the Rut is October and November.

The price is £150.00 for 1 person, or £100.00 each for 2 people booking together. If you would like to reserve a place, or make a group booking, please e-mail or fill in the form below and i will contact you for availability. If you would prefer a different date please let me know.
