Photography Workshop 
With Stuart Grimwood

 


A message from photographer Stuart Grimwood.


During the course of the day, we will photograph numerous Raptors and Owls, both on the grounds of the centre and in beautiful adjoining farmland meadow and woodland settings.


The Birds will be placed on natural perches in interesting locations with photogenic backgrounds.
The day will touch upon many aspects of photographic theory such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings.


It will cover general camera settings, advanced focus settings, specialised techniques and how to apply them to Bird of Prey photography. I can also offer advice in many areas of photography including cameras, lenses, flash photography, software, monitor calibration, and sensor cleaning if required.

I will advise you on how to get better static images of all types, such as close up headshots, mid length, to full length, and wider views, placing the Bird in their surroundings. We will cover the best settings to achieve sufficient depth of field, and freezing the fast motion of Birds as they flap, or preen.


The day will cover all aspects of flying display photography, from the best camera settings, focussing, to tricks and techniques, such as the best shooting locations, and how to use the sun and the weather to your advantage. We will cover how to anticipate the Bird's behaviour such as taking off and landing, to get amazing action shots. Although the session will be primarily focussed on the photography of Birds in natural settings, and flying displays, I can also help you get better images when photographing Birds in a variety of other Falconry centre environments, such as when the Birds are displayed on their perches, or in a dark enclosure.

I aim to make this most comprehensive Bird Of Prey photography training that can be packed into one day.


I want to help you become the best Bird of Prey photographer that you can be. If you have ever taken a Bird Of Prey portrait, or photographed a flying display, you will no doubt have been unhappy with the resulting images at some point. Maybe the images were out of focus, had motion blur, didn't follow the Bird correctly, were too bright, too dark, too blue, the list is endless. I am aiming this training day at anyone who wants to learn the skills to avoid these problems

.
This day will cater to people of all levels of skill and experience, from absolute beginner to seasoned veteran. I am sure that everyone will take away a little knowledge from the day that help will them in the future.
For many people, the primary thing standing the way of them getting fantastic images is one's own previously established ways of working.


I want to get you thinking differently, working smarter, and getting the best images possible.


I intend to pass on important knowledge that I have gleaned over many years of trial and error, not just simply let you loose photographing. If you think you are already getting acceptable images, you are welcome to concentrate on photographing the huge range of Birds in Sussex Falconry's collection, but if you want to take advantage of my knowledge and experience, I will be on hand throughout the day.


I can devote as much or as little time to advising you as you would like, both individually or as a group. I have 24 years of experience in Bird photography and have photographed over 150 captive and wild Raptor species across Europe. I am an internationally published catwalk fashion and event photographer and was in camera sales for over 13 years.


Please see my Facebook photography page: www.facebook.com/stuartgrimwoodfalconryimages'

If the positive response is sufficient, in addition to placing the Birds in their natural environments, I can also bring a comprehensive studio flash set up and a number of coloured backgrounds to photograph the Birds against.
 

Tell me what you would like to do, and what you would like to get out of the day, and I will endeavour to make it a reality, either in this session, a future group session, or even a one to one training session.


Feel free to contact me here on the Sussex Falconry page, my photography page, or email stuart1979.grimwood@sky.com.

I am looking forward to meeting you all.
