Workshop Plan

During this 3 hour workshop you'll have the opportunity to photograph many species of bird at very close range in a fun and creative setting.


The day will begin with a brief introduction on wildlife/flora we should find and tips on photographing birds in pose and flight.

We will then head into Regents Park to photograph iconic London species such as friendly Grey Herons, courting Great-Crested Grebes, many species of duck such as Pochard and Mandarin, and Ring-Necked Parakeet flocks. Bird activity is highest in the morning and the lakes are often shrouded in wonderful mists, allowing possibilities for beautiful images. We may even see the Tawny or Little Owls which roost in the park's oak trees or a Kingfisher on the Serpentine. 

The workshop is led by Paul Collins, a professional wildlife photographer and tv cameraman. With images awarded in the British Wildlife Photography Awards and Scottish Nature Photography Awards, his images showcase the amazing diversity of wildlife found in our cities. 

Paul will offer practical guidance and tuition throughout the morning, and there will be plenty of 1-on-1 learning opportunities for both beginners and intermediate photographers.

Each attendee can receive detailed email feedback on their photos after the workshop.

"This workshop fitted exactly was I was looking for. The whole experience and the few hours I spent with Paul were magical. I've learned new techniques.
