Kingfisher Photography Workshop

Sunday 22nd July 2018


405 Kingfisher, Scotland405 Kingfisher, Scotland

With exclusive use of a photography hide, this is a full day workshop concentrating on photographing the ever popular Kingfisher.

Limited to a maximum of 3 people, the intention is to get some great portraits of the birds and there may also be the possibility of trying for some diving shots.

The hide is located near Kircudbright in South West Scotland, and the day will start by meeting near the hide at 7.30am ending when the light goes. (Car sharing may be possible from the North East).

Equipment needed is lenses of about 300mm to 400mm for perched shots, and shorter for the diving setup where something like a 70-200 is ideal. A bean bag is also needed (it may be possible to borrow one, let me know in advance) as is a remote shutter release cable. 

The site is accessed by a very wet and muddy path and so Wellington boots are also essential.

Help will be given throughout the day to enable you to get the most from the situation, and although wildlife is never totally predictable, this hide has never failed me and regularly produces some excellent images. Advice given will include composition, use of shutter speed and aperture to achieve a desired result, exposure compensation and focussing methods as well as information about the birds themselves.

The cost of this day is £105 each.
