|Red Fox and Birds of Prey workshop|
This photographic workshop offers the chance for participants to capture images of a young dog Fox along with Birds of Prey and/or Owls. Although the Fox is a captive bred animal it must be remembered that he is not tame and therefore his welfare will always be kept in mind. This full day's practical informative workshop features some time spent with a Fox and also with a selection of Birds of Prey and/or Owls. The course has lots of photographic opportunities giving participants ample time to capture plenty of images

CAMERA EQUIPMENT – Steve will help you to get the most out of the equipment you have. As a guide, a digital camera with interchangeable lenses would be best along with any lenses you have ranging from a wide angle through to 400mm or larger telephoto. For the fox photography up to 400mm lens would be suitable. A tripod and flash gun would also be useful.

Bring with you any food and drink you wish to have during the day (tea and coffee will be provided), photographic equipment and lots of memory or film as the day is very full with lots of photographic opportunities. You will also need to bring along suitable clothing for the time of year and footwear for the terrain in which the workshop is run. Finally something you might find useful would be something you could kneel on or lie down on to keep you from getting damp and dirty.
