East Midlands Birds of Prey & Action in East Midlands

Birds of Prey Photo Walk and Handling Experience. 

 
A three hour photo walk in the stunning surroundings of Sherwood Forest to make the most of the evening light with our Falconer Simon and his array of hawks, owls and eagles.  We'll meet at around 5pm in the forest (depending on the time of year, it might be earlier) and take a leisurely stroll through the woods, with opportunities to shoot both portrait and flying shots, with professional photographer Louise Mills on hand to give help, guidance and advice on how to best photograph the birds. 

The session will also include an opportunity to fly and handle the birds if you wish and to have photos taken with them as well as getting up close and personal with them to take beautifully detailed shots. 

 
To get the best from this walk, you should be comfortable working in Aperture Priority and please be aware that this is a three hour walk in the fields and woods, therefore you must be mobile.

The walk is weather dependent; should the weather be unsuitable, your place will be rolled to another walk on a date of your choice.
