About the Course

The aim of the course is to provide the opportunity to photograph wild owls and raptors in controlled conditions and natural settings. Both static and in flight shots will be taken.

The group will meet at the award winning West of England Falconry (WoEF) for an extended private photo shoot. Founded in 2010 by head falconer and director Jay Marshall whom had a lifelong interest in ornithology. WoEF is a registered charity dedicated to the well-being of owls and birds of prey and to promoting an understanding of the historic art of falconry. WoEF’s work aims to benefit both wild and captive birds of prey through selective breeding, training and rescue and rehabilitation.

The shoot will start with birds placed on pre-planned perches, before moving on to flight shots. Fiona will direct the shoot, taking into account the weather on the day. She will also provide advice and guidance on how best to capture the beauty and power of these magnificent creatures through photography.  Around 4 hours will be spent in the field, with a break for lunch in the middle, so make sure you’re appropriately dressed for the weather – as well as lying in wet grass!

After the photoshoots, the group will travel separately back to Lacock to review images back in the classroom.

The photoshoot will be led by Fiona Turnbull.  Fiona’s wildlife photography, and birds in particular has become a passion for her over the past 10 years.  Trips all over the UK to photograph British wildlife are a mainstay of her British Wildlife diary.

About the Day

We aim to start at 10:00am, so ask you to arrive from 9:45am. We expect to be in the field with the birds from around 10:00am to 2:00pm, before returning to the training studio to review images. Bring your own packed lunch and refreshments.  The day ends at around 4:00 pm.

Bring your DSLR camera, with fully charged battery, plenty of space for images and the longest lens you have (a minimum of a 200mm lens). Tripods are not necessary.

Please note: To get the most out of this Bird of Prey Photoshoot, it is recommended that students are able to control both aperture and shutter speed, and have a good understanding of controlling exposure. These skills are taught on our Foundation Courses.
