Bugs ‘N’ Beasts Indoors: Photography Workshop

From: £Contact us

Join award-winning photographer Alex Hyde on this one-off photography workshop at the Bishops Wood Field Centre in Worcestershire.

Using captive-bred subjects like mantids, tarantulas and snakes (all harmless), we will recreate the experience of photography in a rainforest and similar exciting tropical habitats. Good close-ups and portraits of such animals are always dramatic, but taking photos of these creatures is not necessarily straightforward and can seem challenging. However, this doesn't have to be the case....

Based at the Bishops Wood Field Centre located between Kidderminster and Worcester, expert wildlife photographer Alex Hyde will introduce and explain the necessary principles and techniques of this type of photography, so you too can create images with impact and successfully photograph small creatures next time you travel to the tropics or indeed in your back garden. On day 2, Jonathan Cleverly (aka Jungle Jonathan) will join Alex with a host of critters for you to put your new skills to the test.

The aim is that this weekend be informative and enjoyable and that you will leave with a selection of pleasing images and a new set of skills that you can put into practice on your next trip abroad or while visiting your local nature reserve.
