From November onwards, Grey Seals congregate on the shores of England to give birth to their pups and breed. This can be a unique opportunity to photograph these charismatic animals in their natural environment. We will spend a day observing and photographing them from a safe distance, giving us an insight into their day to day lives.

What to expect

A British spectacle

Every winter thousands of Grey Seals come to the shore to give birth to their young. This presents a unique opportunity to photograph this new generation, but it is vital we do this ethically. This workshop will give you this chance whilst respecting the animals welfare and space.

All levels of experience welcome

From complete beginners to seasoned professionals, this workshop will be tailored around your individual requirements. Whether it’s settings, composition, fieldcraft or even post processing, I’m on hand throughout the day to provide this support.

Groups or individuals welcome

Group sizes remain at 4 to ensure everyone receives 1-2-1 support and tuition throughout the day. Larger group sizes are possible on request.

Gift vouchers available

 What have people said?

Janet –I travelled to the UK to join Tesni on a tailored photography workshop. From the beginning, it was clear she had an incredible depth of knowledge about photography, settings and post processing software. Her enthusiasm and passion for photography was evident from the onset and she was always happy to verbalise to me on site how to capture great images. During the week I felt more and more confident with my camera, settings and composition, as she was quick to share all her tips, tricks and knowledge. She was always patient and informative whenever I had a question, whilst also offering constant advice when not prompted by myself. My advice would be to take advantage of Tesni’s expertise and love of photography, I thoroughly loved my time with her and would do it all again! See more testimonials here…
