"Photography for me is not looking,
If you can’t feel what you’re looking at,
then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures."
Sir Don McCullin
I am one of a number of amateur photographers who regularly book trips with Natures Images. Founded by professional nature photographers and conservationists Danny Green and Mark Sisson, all of their trip leaders are widely published and successful award winning photographers.
There are a number of hides and workshops run mainly in Worcestershire, but also in Wilshire, Oxfordshire and Scotland through Nature Photography Hides and Workshops
I have spent a number of Natures Images trips in the company of Pete Whieldon who has established hides and workshops in Hampshire at Pete Whieldon Photography
Dean Mason has established a Windows on Wildlife Nature Photography Hides & Workshops in Dorset
Bob Brind-Surch offers a variety of workshops in UK and abroad at Natures Photos
