My workshop programmes are designed to help people take better photographs of the natural world.
Many people have fantastic camera equipment and lenses but still fail to get the kind of images of
nature that they want. The truth is that beautiful images of wildlife come from an understanding and
knowledge of the natural world, whatever camera or lens you are using. It’s called field craft. and the
most expensive equipment won’t help very much if you have no feel for wild creatures and how to get
close to them.
