British Wildlife Centre Photographic Workshops 2017

Join me at the British Wildlife Centre, where I’ll be hosting a photography workshop and offering advice as we get up close with some the UK’s finest wildlife. The BWC is host to some of the best native wildlife in Britain with over forty different native species from tiny harvest mice to magnificent red deer. In conjunction with David Lloyd Photography, I will be hosting this workshop when the centre is closed to the public. Because of this they offer photographers an opportunity to get exceptionally close to the animals.

The workshops are aimed at amateurs to advanced amateurs and regardless whether or not you have been using a camera for weeks or years, I will be on hand to offer advice and help you make the most of the day.


May 19th – with Richard Peters and David Lloyd

June 19th – with Richard Peters
June 21st – with Richard Peters

The June dates with Richard are limited to group sizes of ten. The May workshop with two co-hosts are limited to twenty, split into two groups of ten.

We have arranged with the British Wildlife Centre to allow you to photograph during the time of the day which offers by far the best light for that time of year, the hour or two before the sun sets.

The price for the day is £170. This includes tea, coffee, and refreshments.

The small group size enables each participant plenty of time for guidance and tuition as required. Subjects covered will include everything from camera settings, exposure, histograms, focal lengths and the best options for use on the day.
