Photograph Red Kites in flight with Wildlife Photographer Paul Miguel
Available Winter and Spring
Book this photography workshop and enjoy the breathtaking tumbling and diving of these magnificent raptors! Red Kites were released at Harewood and Bramham in Yorkshire around 15 years ago. Since then they have spread rapidly and are now seen regularly around Leeds. We meet at a choice of reliable sites where good numbers of birds congregate each day – the exact site chosen will depend on activity and time of year. As well as opportunities for flight shots you may also photograph kites perching in nearby trees. Please note: these are wild birds and whilst these are reliable sites, their behaviour can change day by day. However, kites can often come within ten metres of photographers – sometimes closer! Please note: there may be other people watching/photographing the Kites.
Flight photography is difficult to master so I’ll spend time setting up your camera to give you the best chance of successful images. In particular, it’s important to understand exposure, auto-focus and focus points in order to achieve quality results. Your camera and lens combination needs to reasonably fast to keep up with these fast flying birds. DSLRs and mirrorless cameras are advised; this workshop is generally not suitable for bridge style cameras. This is a fun packed afternoon with plenty of opportunities for action shots!
These Red Kite Photography Courses in Yorkshire can also be purchased as a Gift Voucher.
