Red Grouse Photography Workshops
Red Grouse are charismatic, iconic birds found amongst the moors within the Peak District. Difficult to approach, these birds can be a challenge when it comes to photography, but it is extremely rewarding when you are successful.
What to expect
A unique opportunity
With substantial knowledge and experience working with this population of Grouse, I have a unique understanding of where the best locations are to photograph them. This will give us more opportunities to spend capturing images whilst receiving all levels of tuition and support from myself.
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 are limited to 3 to minimise disturbance to the Grouse. Larger group sizes are not possible for this workshop.

What have people said?
Roy – I wasn’t sure what to expect with this workshop. I hadn’t been able to get any good photographs of Red Grouse on my own so decided to book on a day with Tesni. We started at dawn and headed out. The weather was stormy but it didn’t take long for Tesni to spot the first grouse in the distance. Before long we were practically surrounded by them, making it difficult to decide which way to face. Tesni moved us into a spot near a male Grouse and sure enough we managed to get our first shots. I was very impressed with the advice she gave me, both in terms of settings and composition but also fieldcraft. It was very clear from the start that Tesni is highly passionate about wildlife and it’s welfare and she made sure that we let the wildlife come to us rather than us chasing them. Throughout the day there were few occasions where we weren’t taking photographs and the day ended with all my expectations exceeded. I will definitely go on future workshops with Tesni, thank you!

Workshop Time (Peak District) – 7am-2pm
7am – We will meet a predefined location before heading to the moorland location. The walk up is slightly rocky and steep at points, but it shouldn’t take more than 10-15 minutes to reach the start of the areas where the Red Grouse are.
7.30am- We will spend the time searching for the Grouse to photograph. How much time we get with them is dependant on their behaviour and how quickly we are able to successfully locate them!
