There can’t be many wildlife workshops where you can be almost guaranteed of action. I’m pleased to say the Red Squirrel workshops are one such workshop with almost nonstop action photographing these adorable fluffy mammals in their natural environment.
Located just outside of Hawes in North Yorkshire, the Red Squirrel workshop starts with a meeting time of 0830 in Hawes. a short car drive and then walk to the hides will see us in position and shooting by around 0900. You’ll need plenty of memory cards and batteries.
During the day we’ll shoot in two hides, a natural woodland setting and the amazing reflection pool, shooting at water level creating reflections or even catching the squirrels swimming. We’ll also shoot in the woodland with dry stone walls, signs and other props to create natural looking images. During this session you’ll have the opportunity to use flash too with our flash set up to create stunning backlit images.
The most popular aspect (and fun0 is the jumping session, the squirrels will jump towards the camera, fast reactions and shutter speeds will deliver some amazing head on aerial photos.
There are four places per day. When a day i sold out PayPal will redirect you to try a different date.

A 70-200 is ideal for most locations, unto 400mm will work well for the action a little further away. tripod and cable release. Waterproof covers just incase. A flash trigger is provided for flash use.
As with most wildlife photography the action is not guaranteed but we are working at a well proven location and I would reasonably expect to see between 10 and 20 different squirrels though the day with at least one visible at almost all times. As mentioned, you’ll need lots go batteries and memory cards
Cost per person £150
