This photographic workshop has been designed to capture stunning images of birds of prey in their natural environment. The workshop will be held in a private woodland/ moorland in the heart of the Scottish Highlands close to Aviemore.
Natural Wild Location
We will have access to some very stunning backdrops for each species we photograph. For Each species we Photograph on the day, we will have the choice of a variety of perches, stumps, mixed woodland, Scots Pines and heather Moorland.
On the Day we will concentrate on photographing British Bird of Prey species, but we will have some very unique non- resident raptors and owls available.
