Wildlife photographer Ben Sutcliffe leads our New Forest deer photography workshop in Hampshire with fallow and red deer being our main subjects.
The New Forest is arguably at its finest in Autumn. The ancient woodlands transform into a spectacular colour chart of reds and oranges. The seasonal backdrop coincides with prime deer watching as during the rutting (mating) season deer can be easier to find.
Stags fight for the attention of the females, so sparring is sometimes seen between the larger males and the younger ones who attempt to muscle in on their territory. The males will be alert, so can be photographed standing tall as well as bellowing loudly to assert their dominance.
Keeping the group small will enable us to capture the best images and remain as inconspicuous as possible. The different locations and species should provide you with a lovely array of images for your portfolio. The New Forest provides stunning scenery for images, with heathland and forest areas providing very different opportunities and the autumn colours add warm tones, which complement the deer.
If you're interested in macro photography, we also have a Macro Photography day workshop with private departures in autumn which can be combined with this trip. Please contact us for more information.
