Photograph the spectacular seabirds of Bempton Cliffs with Professional Wildlife Photographer Paul Miguel.
This Photography Workshop concentrates on the bird life around Flamborough cliffs, the only mainland U.K. breeding colony for gannets. Home to thousands of seabirds, these cliff tops are the ideal location to photograph the masses of breeding birds. Gannets will be our main target; from the same height we photograph clear portraits against an ocean backdrop – and capture stunning flight shots! Guilemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and puffins can also be photographed, along with stiff winged fulmars that patrol the skies.
We will start the workshop over coffee before visiting the best viewpoints along the cliffs. Tuition will be given on exposure control, shutter speed, composition and focusing technique. Flight photography is particularly difficult to master so we will spend plenty of time looking at techniques for sharp images of birds in flight. If the weather is good there will be the added option of staying til sunset for evocative silhouettes, at no extra cost.
This is not just a Photography Workshop but also a Full-on Wildlife Experience – making it the ideal Gift!
