‘Wonderful Wildlife’ Photography Course
Join me on Cape Clear Island in sunny Cork on August 20th – 24th
at Cape Clear Bird Observatory
The Bird Observatory on Cape Clear has been an island feature for over 50 years now, and is a key destination for bird watchers and naturalists throughout Ireland and Europe. This five day course will combine both indoor and outdoor sessions in some of the finest scenery in the country. Visitors will soon learn to adjust to the relaxed pace of island life! After an introduction to cover basic photographic skills and techniques, equipment, editing software etc., it will be into the field to photograph as much wildlife and landscape scenes as possible. Participants will learn to photograph birds in the hand and in the field. A session covering landscape and light, will teach participants how best to frame landscapes with wildlife included. Subject to suitable weather conditions, a boat trip around Fastnet is planned to photograph the Lighthouse and seabirds at sea.
The rich and varied biodiversity of the islands bogs and stone wall lined lanes are perfect for exploration with the camera. Together with a rocky coastline that is ideal for capturing seascapes and life in rock pools, we expect to have a lively finish up to this course with a competition to find the best portfolio of the week.
