Half day - private one to one - Introduction to bird photography
in association with Haven Falconry - Isle of Wight
£145.00 per person
Join award winning wildlife photographer KJ Dudley of K1 Photography in association with Haven Falconry, Isle of Wight , for an exciting half day photography private one to one photography experience, with an introduction into the art of bird photography.
This half day photography workshop hosted by KJ Dudley begins at 9am and finishes at around 2pm.
Set in a beautiful woodland setting, the first section of this half day photography experience will focus on those all important camera settings and exploring the art of composition.
You will then move onto an opportunity to produce static portrait shots of a number of stunning birds of prey from Haven falconry in a natural setting. The knowledgable staff from Haven Falconry will be on hand throughout to answer any questions you may have about birds of prey and caring for these most beautiful birds .
As the day progresses, this unique photography experience will eventually move onto the skills of photographing birds in flight with a number of birds of prey from Haven Falconry and an opportunity to put your newly learned photography skills to the test as the birds stretching their wings and taking to the skies with a spectacular aeriel display .
The welfare of the birds is paramount at all times, so specific species of bird that will be photographed at each photography experience may vary, this will also be determined by conditions, the individual birds and falconer available.
The birds are just like us and may have an off day now and again so we cannot guarantee a specific bird will be joining us.
There will also be plenty of opportunities to learn about these magnificent birds of prey throughout the workshop through the knowledgable staff at Haven Falconry who will be on hand at all times.
A great deal of care has been taken to ensure the birds and the environment you will be photographing in looks as natural as possible.

A lens that will enable you to zoom in order not to crowd the birds during static portrait session will be required. A suggested minimum focal length of 200mm is ideal.
Tripods are NOT ideal for photographing the birds in flight, a monopod would be more beneficial for stability during the portrait images especially if you are using a heavy / long lens. Tripods are also restrictive especially when tracking a bird in flight.
A photography beanbag can prove handy for low level shots but is not an essential item
