The Day’s Events

The day begins with a 2-hour session photographing various birds of prey in natural, static settings, in the nearby woodland. As well as ivy-covered tree stumps, mossy rocks and natural perches, there will also be a selection of props, such as a mock thatch, that can be used to create realistic and imaginative images.

The afternoon will continue with a further 2-hour session photographing birds in free flight, including the impressive and majestic flight of the Eagle. During this session you will have ample opportunity to capture images from a range of angles using trusted techniques.

During both sessions, professional wildlife photographer Chris Weston will be on hand to pass on his knowledge and expertise in capturing compelling wildlife images, making sure you capture the images you’ve come to get.

After the two photographic sessions, Chris will give a presentation about the work of the charity Animals on the Edge, including many of his stories from the field during his time working on the book of the same name.

To conclude the day, there is a complimentary barbecue with drinks, where you will have time to socialize and talk to Chris about his photography and his challenging charity cycle ride.

All proceeds from this event are being donated to the charity Animals on the Edge.
