Badger Photography Workshop

Visit operator website

Run by: Wildlife Worldwide

Reference number: 7818

From: £Contact us

A purpose-built photography hide in a secluded valley in the Devon countryside offers a perfect opportunity to photograph an extensive and well-established badger sett in the company of expert Nick Garbutt.

Badgers are undoubtedly one of the UK's most popular and best loved wild animals (at least by all those not connected with the farming community). Yet as they are primarily nocturnal and generally shy, they are usually difficult to see. However this well-positioned hide has been thoughtfully modified for photography (i.e. the glass can be removed the windows), and offers unimpeded views of the badgers as well as providing a perfect opportunity to take pictures.  

In addition the workshop will offer a chance to enjoy the splendours of nearby Exmoor*, where there are exceptional opportunities to capture images of habitat and landscape, plus a chance to photograph the iconic and eponymous ponies. There will be an indoor workshop on digital workflow*, during which you will learn Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop techniques to complement your field skills, allowing you to get the most from your digital images.
