Get up close and personal to some magnificent birds of prey at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary with professional photographer Lindsey Bucknor. 

This is a really wonderful opportunity to take some stunning shots of a range raptors from kestrels, to hawks, eagles, vultures and a selection of beautiful owls.  Expert falconers position the birds in natural surroundings, so you can take photos without glass or wire fences getting in the way.

Lindsey will start the day with a short tutorial on photography, sharing techniques for wildlife photography and offering guidance with the key settings for capturing a good image.

Throughout the course of the day the group will join 2 or 3 public flying demonstrations to photograph birds on the wing.  The bird’s short flights are repeated several times giving you a chance to practice this tricky subject!

Lindsey will offer photographic support throughout the day both in group sessions and one-to-one tuition.  The experienced falconers are also very happy to share their knowledge of the birds if you’re curious to find out more about them.

This is special and fun day out for beginners and more experienced photographers alike.

(You may also like to join Lindsey on Sat 05 September for photography workshops in Woodbridge – part of the Suffolk Sketchfest events.)
