Could you let me know if the bird of prey course is suitable for a beginner .. Thanks
Yes, they are certainly suitable for beginners. I had two beginners on a course yesterday. The main thing is to ideally have a lens of at least 200mm as it makes for better portraits. If you want to know anything else just ask. Thanks for the interest.
I have just paid my deposit for the Summer Workshop 18th July 2014 via PayPal.
I will also complete the booking form and send it by email.
Best wishes. Martin
Thanks Martin. Look forward to meeting you.
I am slightly disabled would the course be suitable for me
There is some walking on uneven ground. Let me know what difficulties you may have any I can give you more of an idea. July’s workshop is in one location where everything is pretty close by – I’m sure we could accommodate you.
Hi again Paul, I shall be interested in your Macro Workshop but not until next year. Can you keep me in touch? Kind regards. John Harrison.
Good to hear from you John. I will keep in touch, and I’ll let you know if it starts to get booked up etc.
Hi There Paul, I am hoping to make this course with you, so can you put my name down please, just up my street. David.
Could you please let me know when your dates for 2015 will be available.
Hi Helen. Confirmed dates above for these workshops. Thanks, Paul
Hi. All Workshops for 2015 are now on the Workshops page The majority can have the discount applied for under 18s. Thanks.
I would say the best Fish & Chips in Yorkshire at http://www.naked-fish.co.uk/ !!
If you are looking for a gift for a keen photographer, this Bluebell Photography Course is ideal. Following professional photographer Paul Miguel in a semi-private woodland you will be able to capture stunning photos at a leisurely pace.
We are now in the 21st year that Malham Cove has attracted nesting Peregrine Falcons. If you want to photography something really exhilarating and witness a true wildlife spectacle, this wildlife photography workshop is definitely for you!
I’m thoroughly looking forward to two of our brand new Bird of Prey Workshops next year at http://www.smjfalconry.co.uk/ The settings are some of the best I’ve seen and the variety of birds incredible.! Bring a partner along at half the price…
Read some of the feedback on these One to One Photography days at
There’s no better way to learn than shadowing a professional nature photographer for the day.
Can I double check the 2015 dates for this workshop please? e.g. the June date says Saturday 19th June, but the 19th is a Friday. Is this workshop on the Friday 19th or Saturday 20th please?
Sorry about that – it is Friday 19th June. Just let me know if you have any more questions.
Could you please give me details when the Little Owl Hide or the Reflection Pool are available to hire? My friend has a birthday coming up in February and I thought it would be a brilliant present to treat her too, and of course I would have to go along too!
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Regards and a Happy New Year
The little owl hide will run once I have confirmed the birds are nesting again, so this won’t be til April time. Everyone on my mailing list will receive an email to confirm if and when the hide is available. Unfortunately the reflection pool is not ready to be used as yet. I’ll send you an email with some more suggestions.
Thank you for your prompt reply to my booking request.
This new workshop has been added for 2016. The perfect location for a mixture of woodland scenes and close up photography.
Hi and apologies if I have missed the info, but could I ask where the barn owl sessions are being run and whether these are still taking place??
Hi Matt. Yes I’m currently offering Barn Owl evening sessions. Situation at present is a female on nest so male bird is doing all the hunting and feeding her.
My names Simon, I have just been working outside today, painting a house in the country and I believe ( I could be wrong but defiantly a big bird of prey) I have seen a honey buzzard over the past few days, and today it was being hassled by two crows, interesting to see!
I love my wildlife photography and it got me thinking it would be great to get the chance to photography birds of prey given the chance. I found your site and workshops on line and I was just wondering where you are actually based? I’m in south east Surrey myself. If you are reasonable local I may try and book a date for a course.
Hi Paul. Is this suitable for enthusiastic amateurs?
Hi Lisa. Yes this is suitable for amateurs. You need to have a macro lens or extension tubes and be prepared for an early start!
Hi I am very interest in the next macro course on 7th Aug please can you email me the location as a 5:30am start is very early
Hi Steve. It may not start that early but if clear weather then it’s best. Meeting place will be Lin Dyke car park which is very close to Fairburn Ings nature reserve (WF10 2BH).

Hi Paul, in the hope that you’ll be running this trip in 2019, I would like to declare interest. Although my main reason for joining would be for the Wildlife in great settings, I would not want to miss landscape opportunities. Will there be chances to photograph any iconic scenery (not necessarily the most well known) such as waterfalls. Also if you have any further example images, love to see them. Regards Conrad
Hi Conrad. Thank for your interest in an Iceland Tour for 2019. I will email you later today with further informatoin. Best regards, Paul

Hi Lawrence. This Red throated Diver was photographed in Iceland. I would love to see them in Finland as well though.

Really looking forwards to the day.
