The UK is arguably home to some of the most diverse and photogenic Waterfowl in the world. From Great Crested Grebes to Northern Pintails, along with more exotic species including Whistling Ducks & Hooded Merganser, this workshop offers a huge variety of birds to develop your portfolio throughout the day.

What to expect

A workshop of opportunity

With over 40 species of waterfowl, including numerous exotic species not found elsewhere in the UK, this workshop gives you the unique opportunity to develop a varied portfolio within the space of a day. With the opportunity to get right down to the waters edge and shoot low and short walking distances between the sites, we will spend the majority of the day shooting.

What have people said?

Mark – Thoroughly enjoyed the Waterfowl Workshop with Tesni. A wonderful venue stocked with an amazing range of native and introduced species, where it was straightforward to get the camera down to water level and shoot against fine backdrops. Tesni gave really helpful guidance tailored to each photographer’s needs, and I could see my images steadily improve throughout the day. Despite steady rain during the morning, we were taught how to make the most of the conditions and accordingly we all came away with a range of less-usual shots where the raindrops in the air and on feathers and water gave added interest. Strongly recommended, and excellent value! See more testimonials here…
