There is something about owls that everyone loves and Andy does too! So it's only natural that he has decided to run Owl Workshops. Rather than use a falconry centre, Andy has decided to use the British Wildlife Centre as they have a superb collection of Owls that are trained to fly or sit prettily for portraits.
You will spend upto 5 hours of photography at the best times of the day for light (all day in Winter). All owl locations will be natural for the special and species will include Tawny Owl (flying and general portraits), Long Eared Owl, Short Eared Owl, Little Owl and Barn Owl (flying and portraits). Andy will use his expertise to ensure that you learn different techniques for each one, ensuring that you get a range of great shots no matter what the weather conditions. Before each shoot he will brief you on what he is looking for and will be there to help and advise throughout. It's a perfect day for anyone interested in improving their photography and spending time with owls.
Here's a small selection of Andy's images that he has taken using some of the owls on the workshop. You can see the kind of images that he will show you how to get.

During the Spring and Summer months our Owl Workshops will start mid-late afternoon to ensure that you have the best light. In the Autumn they will start 1.30-2pm and in Winter they will run all day. You will be informed of the exact start time, camera gear and everything you need to know on booking.
GearSince we are dealing with captive owls you will not need a long telephoto. A lens in the range of 300mm will be perfectly sufficient, so either a 100-400, 300mm fixed or a 70-200 with a 1.4x teleconverter. You will need wellingtons, that is for sure!
The cost is £149 + VAT per delegate and the workshop will have a maximum of 12 participants, ensuring that you get really personal attention from Andy. This price includes a lunch of sandwiches, soup, crisps and sausage rolls, plus the services of Andy Rouse and the British Wildlife Centre. When you book your place you will receive an email confirmation together with full instructions for the day including what gear to bring.
