About Owls

 The UK is home to 5 very different species of owl; the barn owl, little owl, short-eared owl, long eared owl and tawny owl. Owls are widely considered to be strictly nocturnal but many are actually crepuscular (active at dawn and dusk). The exception to this is the Tawny owl which is almost exclusively active at night. The incredible range of habitats present in the Peak District means that all of our native owl species are found here, offering some fantastic photographic opportunities year-round.

 What can I expect?

From close up detailed portraits to environmental and behavioural images my owl photography workshops will show you how to capture a stunning portfolio of images of these unique birds. 

I have studied and photographed owls in great depth, and I will teach you all the essential fieldcraft and technical skills needed to get close without causing any disturbance. I will also explain how to recognise different behaviours and habits of so that you leave with a much better understanding of these evocative hunters.

Throughout the day we may have the opportunity to photograph (season dependent); little owls, barn owls, short-eared owls, curlew, buzzards, kestrels, wagtails, skylarks and much more!

How long do your workshops last? 

I typically run my workshops for a maximum of 6 hours, allowing you to get the most from your time without feeling too overwhelmed or tired. Reduced or extended hour workshops are available on request.
