Red Squirrel Workshop
Our Red Squirrel Workshop allows photographers to capture both static and action shots of Red Squirrels in one session.
Using various locations in a private, openly planted woodland, you will be able to move around the trees, walls and attractive perches to make best use of the light and obtain clean backgrounds.
From moss covered tree stumps and fallen logs to attractive pine trees and lichen covered dry stone walls, the workshop provides the opportunity to create a varied portfolio of Red Squirrel images.
Whilst this is an 'outdoor' workshop, our hides are also available for use on the day if there is bad weather. They also provide seating for lunch and drinks breaks.
I can assist with helping you set up your camera to get the best possible shots and anticipate the Squirrels behaviour. If you don't require tuition then I will still be on hand to set up opportunities for you in the best possible locations within the woodland.
A minimum lens focal length of 200mm is recommended. The photography session lasts for approximately five hours (meeting at Hawes at 8.30am and returning by approximately 2.30pm). There will be a maximum of three participants on each workshop.
Recommended accommodation (if required) can be found in the 'Links' section of the website.
If you are looking to obtain action shots then please be aware that the Squirrels move extremely fast and can be erratic. Obtaining good running and jumping shots can sometimes be difficult and requires a good knowledge of your equipment and significant patience. However, I can help you maximise your chances, show you a mix of straightforward and more advanced techniques, and ensure you will get plenty of opportunities.
Price £125 per person - Max of Three Persons (tea and coffee provided, please bring your own lunch).
I can also run a Red Squirrel Workshop on a One-to-One basis for £250.
