Join Nikon School on location to learn how to photograph amazing images of the deer at Studley Royal Park in North Yorkshire. The park is home to Red, Fallow and Sika deer which provide great subjects to photograph amongst the ancient oak woodlands. October is the time for the annual Red Deer rut, so the magnificent Red Deer stags will be the main attraction for this photography experience.
This workshop has something for everyone from beginners to advanced photographers as we will cover camera settings, tips and techniques to help you get the best images from the day. We will start early in the morning to make the most of the light and atmosphere created by the Autumnal weather.
This VIP experience is limited to four delegates, allowing us more time to teach you the techniques needed to take great images.
As with all wildlife photography, the welfare and safety of the animals comes first, so we will be photographing at a respectful distance. Recommended lenses would be in the range 200mm to 400mm, although longer focal lengths such as 500 or 600mm can also be used to get great images.
The park is large so we may end up walking a fair distance to find and photograph the deer, please make sure you wear appropriate clothing and footwear. The ground can be very wet early in the
morning, so waterproof boots or wellies are strongly advised
We would suggest bringing snacks and drinks as the tea room at Studley Royal will not open until 10am and the deer are normally on the other side of the park to this location
If you would like to borrow any Nikon cameras or NIKKOR lenses e-mail us at [email protected], with your requirements. Please give us at least 1-2 weeks to arrange loan equipment if we can
On the day, we recommend parking at the Lakeside Car Park. To access this car park, go through the village of Studley Roger and drive through the gateway to the park (use the post code HG4 3AY for Sat Navs). Be aware that this entrance opens at 6am and is automatically protected by bollards. There is a parking charge currently £6 all day, although for National Trust members it is free.
Another brilliant day with Nikon School. There were plenty of subjects to photography with various lighting conditions. As usual Neil was giving great advice on how to shoot in those conditions.
Once you have completed the course on location, or the training online, use your online portal access to upload your photos, share them with others on the course in the gallery area, compare ideas and results, plus get direct feedback from your trainer.
