Coastal Birds Photography Workshop
Every year, hundreds of thousands of sea birds return to their nesting sites on the eastern coast of the UK. Gannets, Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Fulmars are just some of the charismatic and beautiful birds you may encounter. This wonderful spectacle is a fantastic opportunity for any budding photographer to get up close and personal and capture images to cherish forever, whilst learning new skills and techniques along the way.

What have people said?
Giselle – I had a brilliant day at Tesni’s Coastal birds photography course in May 2016. I was delighted with the images I had taken. As a complete beginner to wildlife photography the day catered really well to my needs. Tesni was able to help with some useful tips on how to get the best composition and also helped explain in very simple terms the best settings to use on my camera to get the best shots. She was on hand during the day if I had any questions or needed any help and all the learning was very much geared to my skill level and taken at my own pace. I feel that I learnt a lot of useful new skills on the day in a very relaxed environment and also had a lot of fun! Tesni’s passion and enthusiasm for wildlife photography really shines through. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend one these day courses for anyone interested in doing some wildlife photography, regardless of their skill level. Thanks! See more testimonials here…
