Description

DESCRIPTION: Join professional Welsh photographer and lecturer, Andy Davies, for an unforgettable stay on Skomer Island. Opportunities for capturing memorable images abound at this UK wildlife hotspot and Andy will always be on hand to guide you the best locations at the optimum times and to help with a wide variety of techniques.

April is the time when the Puffins, Guillemots and Razorbills are busy building nests and courting, and the beach in North Haven is crammed full of Atlantic grey seals. Short-eared owls are busy hunting the endemic Skomer vole and the best time to capture them is just after sunrise when they are particularly active.

Previous participant’s portfolios from Andy Davies’s photography workshops on Skomer can be viewed here.

PRICE: £160pp includes 2 nights accommodation and expert tuition for the whole time whilst you’re on Skomer

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT: Compact, bridge or DSLR cameras with interchangeable lenses. Suitable lenses include a wide angle, macro and lenses with focal lengths between 200mm (for DX sensors) to 300mm (for FX sensors) are good.
