Photograph a range of UK Deer in the Autumn Rut with wildlife photographer Paul Miguel.
Please note: this page is being updated to provide workshops on a 1:1 and 2:1 basis.
The red deer photography workshop takes place in the magnificent grounds of Studley Royal in North Yorkshire. During October, the deep sound of roaring deer stags reverberates around the trees as the annual rut gets under way. During this time rival males compete for females, sometimes resulting in full blown battles with clashing antlers. This is one of nature’s most magnificent events – a display of true power and might! The surroundings of the deer park are very natural, and using the changing colours of the mature trees we will compose pleasing portraits of red, sika and fallow deer. We photograph mid-week to avoid the crowds.
We will photograph individual animals and herds: tuition will be given on exposure control, composition and focusing technique. We may also have the opportunity to try some creative action techniques. Whilst the Deer are used to people, we do need to treat them with respect and avoid causing them disturbance.
Please note: there is an additional National Trust Car Parking Fee of £5 for a full day. NT members will get free parking.
