 NEW! TV appearance and film!

River Walks BBC ONE Mon 10th Dec 2018 7:30pm - The Exe

BBC West region only (available on iplayer all regions)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bty0xg/river-walks-series-1-the-exe

I recently filmed a BBC one program with Stanley Johnson and his Daughter Rachel as they walked the first 12 miles of the river Exe on Exmoor in Somerset, and I'm in it too!

Despite the weather being absolutely awful during our filming schedule, which made showing off the beauty of this fantastic landscape incredibly difficult we managed to survive and had a few laughs along the way...

Helped by the none stop pun and joke making machine that is Stanley Johnson, we started high up near  Exe Head and ended up in the picturesque village of Winsford, and I also got to show the Johnson's a few of the photos I have taken along the River Exe, including the lovely Dipper and the wonderful Kingfisher, which may be included in the program!

2018

NEW - Photography Courses

General Wildlife and Landscapes

General wildlife / landscape courses can be arranged from at a conveinent time to suit you and your friends or family. Red deer photography can also be included in these days but as always with wildlife can  be unpredictable and the deer may not be easily accessible. Bird life can be good on Exmoor during the winter with species such as Short Eared Owl Hen Harrier, Buzzard, Kestrel, Merlin, Barn Owl spotted during the day. Winter migrants include murmurations of Starlings, golden plover, redwing and lapwing.

Summer highlights include cuckoo, Exmoor ponies and goals, red deer calfs, red kites and summer visitors such as pied flycatchers and nightjars.

Snakes !

During March and April I will be running some special Reptile days were we try and find and photograph one of my favourite species of snake - the Adder! Learn about habitat, behaviour and identification as part of the day and why we must help protect them and educate others about their important position in keeping our eco-system healthy. Common lizards and slow worms are also possible to see if we are lucky.

About the Photography days / workshops

My workshop courses are not a "get you a photo of an animal ,at all costs" kind of  day like some, but an introduction to becoming a better wildlife photographer. This includes key camera settings, field craft and most  importantly, ethics. Hopefully this will not only enhance your photography skills but also  enhance your experiences photographing  wildlife for years to come.

Costs are £185 for a one to one day . If 2 people book together at the same time, for the same day there would be a £70 discount, i.e £300 for 2 people. Including light refreshments and hot/cold drinks.

A 20% deposit via PayPal(credit/debit card) or the full amount is required to secure the date requested with the balance payable on the day via cheque or cash (card payment is also available on request)
