Deer Rut Workshop - Wild Dales Photography

Deer Rut Workshop


Join me for a day photographing the annual Red Deer Rut in a fantastic oak parkland setting. Studley Royal near Ripon holds some mighty stags along with Sika and Fallow Deer.

I run these days on a One-to-One basis (or a Two-to-One for two photographers that know each other), to reduce disturbance to the deer and also to allow me to offer the most thorough advice on composition and camera settings. We will cover techniques such as how to take images of rutting deer safely, how to use movement in herds to produce creative images and how best to use the light and landscape to show these magnificent animals at their best.

The session will involve a reasonable amount of walking as the deer park is fairly large and the animals do move around over the course of the day. There are some minor inclines. Suitable waterproof footwear and clothing are advisable if the conditions are changeable.

Lenses of 200mm and longer are suitable. For lenses over 300mm in length a tripod or monopod is recommended. Please bring drinks and a packed lunch alternatively, there is a cafe on site.

Price £150 (One-to-One), £100 per person (Two-to-One)
