No official start time for this workshop you get to Richmond Park to suit yourself…

I will be there for an early start around 6am at the Richmond Hotel to head down for sunrise by the lakes which is approximately 7.15am & it is a fair walk (20 minutes ish) from Richmond hill to the lakes.
As the light gets up we will survey the Stag situation & move off with the hope of shooting the Red Deer…if you don’t want to do the early start that’s fine meet up with us whenever you want to arrive the workshop will end at 11.30/12 midday.

***check about driving cars into the park at 6ish, I understand it will be too early***

Whatever time you decide to arrive we will “hopefully” see the magnificent Red Stag partaking in the noisy & frenetic rutting season bellowing to ward off other Stags, thrashing in the foliage to strengthen their neck muscles & to dress the antlers to exaggerate their size & maybe them engaging in full on fights to gain supremacy over territory or warding of suitors to their hinds…a wildlife spectacle here in the heart of London.

All of this makes for a fascinating morning out & great photos…& if the light plays ball it lights up the Autumn grass & bracken beautifully…

I will be on hand throughout the meet to assist with all necessary camera settings information, shutter speeds, focal length, composition etc suggestions that will enable you to capture great photos of these magnificent beasts…

Within the fee cost there is a 2 hour online Zoom night for attendees where you can showcase/share some of your favourite images from the workshop & if you want, get feedback/critique, edit suggestions, thoughts on processing etc.
Other than that do please upload your “best 3 shots” from the day to the group page other members will do the same too, it’s a great way to see how others photographed the same workshop & I will be contributing too.

If you’re not sure about kit, lenses etc then please feel free to ask or message me directly…

Good clothing is advised, sturdy walking boots, long trousers, warm clothes, waterproof in car, gloves…you get the idea.
