Talks & Workshops
Forgotten Little Creatures Nature & Photography Workshops.

These workshops are based around my Forgotten Little Creatures project so will not be species specific. Instead we will spend the day out in the field looking for different species from plants and invertebrates to amphibians to photograph.

We will cover how to find subjects, capturing characters, look at creative and artistic images and how to photograph different species responsibly and ethically.

The exact locations will only be given out on booking as these are subject to change depending on what is at each site a week before, but they will be in similar areas.

These workshops are based in Somerset around the Glastonbury area.

Depending on the workshop we will visit two different locations.

Workshops will run at different times, for details please see dates below.

Maximum of 5 spaces available (minimum of 3 people required to run the workshop)

What is Covered:

Aperture, composition, light, shutter speed, monochrome and tips & tricks to get the most out of your subject.

The focus will be on carrying out the majority of the work in camera in the field and we will be based outside combining different aspects of photography to achieve more creative and artistic images of common subjects whilst being aware and careful of the area in which you are working so as not to cause damage. I will be sharing some of my most commonly used tips, tricks and techniques with you throughout the day which can be taken over to many different areas of photography not just nature (for example I use many of them in my wedding photography).

A basic working knowledge of your equipment and a basic understanding of aperture and white balance are essential.

What to bring:

Camera(s) and manual if you can, lenses, tripod (or monopod) any filters you have, LED lights, outdoor clothing (waterproofs, fleeces, outdoor and indoor shoes etc), ideas and questions!

Dates
