Farne Islands Workshop and Photoshoot 22nd June.


3 in stock

On Saturday 22nd June I am running another photographic workshop on The Farne Islands.


The workshops will be £55 head, but there are additional costs:

The workshop price excludes the boat ride tickets and landing fees. We will be going with Billy Shiels’ Glad Tidings.
The boat trip is £40. I’ll reserve the places and you can either pay me or pay directly at the office in Seahhouses.
There is also a landing fee of £34.80. However, that is waived if you have National Trust membership (£69/year) or the cheaper National Trust of Scotland membership 

Wildlife on the Farne Islands

You get really close to puffin, shag, arctic tern, guillemot, razorbill, arctic tern and a whole lot more. We will see seals and, if we are lucky, dolphin too. Also included is a cruise around the islands.

What will the workshop cover?

The workshop will include camera settings, positioning yourself for birds on the ground and in-flight, bird behaviour, photograph composition and exposure. You will have plenty of opportunity to put the skills into practice.

It is an intense day on the islands. The birds are noisy and the guano smelly’ There is little shelter from the sun, and no toilet on Staple Island, which is the first we visit. There is a toilet on Inner Farne. The trips are weather and sea-state dependent. If the sailing fails then I will either postpone the trip to a mutually convenient time or refund you in full.

Places on these trips are limited and so I am limiting the group to 7 participants.

What will I need to take?

A telephoto zoom lens of around 70-200mm is ideal, but you will still get great shots with a standard lens.
I will supply a full kit list when you sign up, but you won’t need a lot of extra gear although you will need a packed lunch and drink.

What times?

We will need to meet in Seahouses at around 8:30 in the morning for a 9am sailing. We get back ashore between 3.30 and 4pm.

Sorry, this is non-refundable if you cancel, unless I can fill your space.
