I am very pleased to announce I am running a series of Roe deer photography workshops in the late Spring and Summer this year.
Roe are perhaps our prettiest species of native deer; as beautiful as they are beguiling. I have been photographing Roe deer in and around the southern counties of England for several years now and am very experienced in understanding and interpreting their behaviour and the best places where to find them.
Roe deer are notoriously hard to get close to (hence why there are so few decent images of them around) and so this represents an unprecedented opportunity to add Roe deer to your photographic portfolio.
You will spend time in the field with myself, alongside one of the UK’s most renowned deer stalkers. This gives us access to the best ground for stalking Roe deer in their traditional stronghold of Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. All the ground is privately owned so the workshop is the only way of getting access to this prized ground which my deer stalker manages and where some of my images are taken.
You will have a chance to capture a range of images of these charismatic animals. On a typical day you can expect close-up views of Roe Bucks, does and even their fawns if you are lucky too.
Late Spring/ Summer Winter is the best time of year to photograph Roe dee as they are easier to get close to, particularly as the rut approaches. There is also the bonus that they look at their best at this time of year in their deep ruset summer coats.
Roe are perhaps our prettiest species of native deer; as beautiful as they are beguiling. I have been photographing Roe deer in and around the southern counties of England for several years now and am very experienced in understanding and interpreting my behaviour and where to find them. Dawn and dusk are the best time of day to find Roe deer so your day will be split into two separate sessions. You need to be prepared for a very early start and late finish given the time of year.
Our deer stalker has recommended no more than two guests maximum given that Roe are very shy and therefore notoriously hard to stalk.
Group Size: 2 photographers maximum plus professional deer stalker guide. I will be on hand for photographic advice if required but will stay out of the way for on foot stalking which will be undertaken under the guidance of our deer stalker.
