Telephoto Wildlife Photography Workshop
9:45am - 5:30pm

Nick Upton is coming to Combe Grove to lead a series of workshops aimed at people who already enjoy photography using a Digital SLR camera and want to learn more or improve their technique, acquire some new tricks, or would like to photograph forms of nature they haven’t attempted before. You do not need to be an expert photographer but if you use more than the auto settings and have an understanding of aperture control, shutter speed, ISO and how these affect an image, then these workshops are just right for you.
Workshop 2: Telephoto Photography of Wildlife and Field Trip to Corsham Lake
This workshop is for photographers who would like to use telephoto lenses – from modest-sized to massive - to capture classy photos of birds, mammals and other subjects in nature.   It will show how a combination of good technical skills, field craft, imaginative shooting angles and knowledge of seasonal opportunities all help to create memorable work in locations ranging from domestic to further afield.
The workshop will include:

A presentation and demonstration of equipment and techniques
Buffet lunch
Field trip to Corsham Lake for a photography session
Tea, coffee and an afternoon snack 
Transport to and from Corsham Lake

All you need is a Digital SLR camera and some creative energy! 
The workshops can be taken individually or as a course of three, sequentially building on skills taught in previous workshops.

There are one or two that can teach you the basic rules and shots of the game - just ask if you would like this help. The people that have been coming along for over two years now are mixed ability, all ages and good fun. You will be very welcome.

It's about having fun!

The table(s) are booked for 10.30 - 12.30 this has to include set up and putting away time, so please arrive promptly at 10.30am. Coffee and/or lunch afterwards at a nearby venue for those who want to stay on. We have to vacate the school promptly at 12.30pm having already packed away the tables so apologies in advance if I have to cut your game short.

I book and pay in advance. Please make sure that if you RSVP you come so that I am not out of pocket. Thank you.

I will limit numbers to a maximum of four more than tables booked so please be prepared to swap in and out and have some possible non playing time. I will swap people in regularly to minimise this.

Looking forward to it :-)

This is a popular event. Please respect others and change your RSVP to No if you find you cannot attend after all, especially if there are people waiting. Please do not simply not turn up, that prevents others from the opportunity to play and costs me personally. Thank you for your respect.
