A day of photographing a vast array of Native and overseas Birds of Prey at Gauntlets fantastic Centre on the outskirts of Knutsford.

You will have the opportunity in the morning to photograph the birds in static positions in carefully thought out photogenic positions around a rustic pond, and then in the afternoon we will concentrate on photographing birds of prey of all sizes in flight, once again in a part of the grounds to give nice natural backgrounds.

The species that will hopefully be available include…. Bald Eagle, Sea Eagle, Golden Eagle, Barn Owl, Tawny Owl, Little Owl, Long Eared Owl, Great Grey Owl, Kestrel, Red Kite, Black Kite, Buzzard, Goshawk, Harris Hawk, various species of Vulture and unique opportunities to photograph Raven, Maribu Stork and Cara Cara.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be up close and personal to these amazing birds that Graham and his team at Gauntlet always have in tip top condition,  you will not need long expensive lenses to achieve nice images.

This is a real special day, hugely popular, in a fantastic location, with an array of really special birds. The day starts at 10am and will run through until 4pm with a break for lunch which will be provided.

Birds of Prey and photographing them is Gary’s real passion, and he will be on hand all day to assist, guide and help you achieve images to be proud of.

There are only 10 places available for this workshop, to book a place follow the link at the top to Gauntlets website.

Below are a few images of the actual birds at the Centre photographed over the course of the last Workshop weekend, and a bit of feedback from our Guests..
