Get in the picture at Carsington Water

Learn how to take inspirational nature photographs with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust at Carsington Water this September.

The Trust is holding two workshops with expert wildlife photographer Paul Shaw, based in the Wildlife Discovery Room at Carsington Water Visitor Centre. The first, on Saturday, September 6, looks at landscapes.

Paul will be showing you how to master composition, perspective and light, using Carsington Water to provide a stunning backdrop.

On Saturday, September 20, join the Trust for a Wildlife and In-Flight Photography Workshop. Spend the morning learning how to take static images of birds of prey.

In the afternoon, move on to in-flight photography, taking action shots of the birds on the wing.

Both workshops run from 10.30am to 4pm. The landscape photography course costs £30 per person and the in-flight photography day is £50 per person. Both are suitable for adults and accompanied children aged 12 and over. Please note that booking is essential. Contact Derbyshire Wildlife Trust on 01773 881188.
