About the Mountain Hare
The mountain hare is actually the UK’s only native hare. Their European cousin the brown hare was introduced to our country by the Romans. The Peak District is home to the only population of mountain hares outside of the Scottish Highlands. Since their reintroduction in the 1800’s the population has been steadily growing, with the high moorlands providing an ideal habitat for these beautiful animals.
What can I expect?
From detailed portraits to environmental and behavioural images, my mountain hare photography workshops will show you how to capture a stunning portfolio of these amazing mammals.
Throughout the day we may also have the opportunity to photograph; red grouse, golden plover, short eared owls, kestrels and much more!
The welfare of the subject is of utmost importance in all my wildlife photography workshops. I will teach you the essential fieldcraft skills required to get close and capture stunning images without causing stress or disturbance.
How long do your workshops last?
Unlike many other photographers that insist on you booking a full day, I run my workshops on an hourly basis (minimum 2 hour booking). This means I can tailor the session to your personal requirements. The day can be just as long or as short as you would like it to be!
How much does it cost?
£25 p/h for one to one tuition
Discounted rates also available.
Potentially long walks along uneven and steep boggy ground.
A 500mm lens or 300mm with teleconverters is ideal (or equivalent on crop/bridge camera).
Due to the low angles we will be shooting at, a beanbag is advised.
There may also be opportunities for landscape photography, so a wide angle or standard zoom lens and a sturdy tripod are recommended.
Camouflage is not essential for this workshop, however neutral colours – browns and greens are advisable.
Due to the nature of the location we may be lying on boggy ground and crossing slippy peat groughs to get to eye level with the hares. Waterproof walking boots are essential and waterproof clothing is strongly recommended.
