About Red Grouse
Relative of the willow grouse, found in the northern boreal forests, red grouse are found on open moorland in the upland areas of the British Isles. Highly competitive birds, male red grouse compete primarily for areas of moorland rich in heather and bilberry bushes, ideal sites in which the female will produce a nest scrape for her eggs.
What can I expect?
Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to capture a range of images, from portraits and silhouettes to action shots and behavioural photographs. My red grouse photography workshops will show you how to capture a stunning portfolio of images of these iconic moorland birds.
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 ‘day rates’ and group options are also available.
Potentially long walks along uneven boggy ground.
A 500mm lens or 300mm with teleconverters is ideal (or equivalent on crop/bridge camera).
There may also be opportunities for landscape photography, so a wide angle or standard zoom lens and a sturdy tripod are recommended.
Due to the nature of the location we may be walking up steep inclines and across rough boggy terrain to get close to the grouse. Waterproof walking boots are essential and waterproof clothing is strongly recommended.
Camouflage is not essential for this workshop, however neutral colours – browns and greens are advisable.
