Photographing Kingfishers in the Wild

Specific hides can offer great encounters for kingfishers, though they can be expensive and not for everyone. This workshop offers a different approach. Focussing on seeking out kingfisher habitats that allow you to enjoy the spectacle of kingfisher behaviour day after day.

We'll spend the day looking at fieldcraft techniques and  camera skills that will enable you to go out and start creating magical encounters of your own, in your own local patches. 

Intro to Wildlife Photography at the spectacular Leighton Moss

In terms of wildlife places don't get much more inspiring than Leighton Moss. Otters gliding on ice, Red Deer marching over the marsh as Marsh Harriers dance overhead, spooking large flocks of waders that overwinter here. It's the perfect place to get lost in nature (with a camera!).

And if you hang about afterwards you might be lucky enough to catch the epic murmurations this reserve is famous for!

Can I bring children?

From an early age, photography has played such a key role in my life. As part of my desire to champion photography to young people I offer free places for under 16s when accompanied by a paying adult

What if the weather forecast is bad?

You may be surprised just how many bad forecasts result in beautiful days - it happens a lot!

Walking Photography will always try and proceed with a planned photo walk. If extreme weather conditions or severe accessibility issues arise, then the walk date will rearranged for a convenient date. 

What if the weather is bad? 

It is surprisingly rare to have an event that is completely marred by the weather. With a deep to commitment to offering fun and enjoyable photo walks and workshops, if the event is judged to have been ruined by the weather participants will be given a 50% discount voucher off a future Photo Walk workshop up to the same value. 

Can I bring my camera phone or tablet?

Yes! We welcome camera phone and tablet walkers on most photo walks. There are some events like Get a Grip Course and the Night Photo Walks where you require manual functions on your camera. Such events are clearly noted in the descriptions.

What is the accessibility like? 

Accessibility varies widely from event to event. Please get in touch with any accessibility questions.

Walking Photography also offers Private Leisure Tours at a fixed rate that can be tailored to address any accessibility needs.
