Seals and terns boat photography workshop

Join me on a unique experience photographing seals and terns up close along the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Along with expert local naturalist David Diggens from Hidden Norfolk we will take a boat trip around Blakeney Spit to focus on getting you the best wildlife photographs possible. As a small group you will have exclusive use of a boat and you’ll be placed right in the centre of the action with terns diving near the boat to catch food. We’ll sail close to the shoreline allowing you to photograph these charismatic birds feeding their young. In comparison to the rushed tourist boats we’ll spend much more time at sea manoeuvring the boat to get you fantastic images of these charismatic birds in action. Alongside the terns we will be photographing the many seals which live along the coast. Again, we’ll be getting you close to them so you can get beautiful shots of them both in and out of the water which otherwise would be impossible from the tourist boats.

Alongside the main attractions there will also be opportunities to photograph a host of other species including gannets, waders and much more.

This really is great trip and a wonderful experience.
