For the best ever birds of prey photography workshop, join us in the Czech Republic where we will spend two days photographing a wide range of raptors, including golden eagle, sea eagle, peregrine falcon and a variety of owls, both in-flight and posed in stunning, natural settings. Nowhere else can we replicate the diversity of opportunities this location provides. The course culminates in a unique opportunity to photograph at eye level eagles gliding above a natural pond.
The workshop begins with a morning flight to Prague. On arrival we transfer to our hotel and check in and for the next two days you will enjoy a unique and rare opportunity to photograph some of northern Europe’s most charismatic birds of prey, both in flight and perched in authentic natural settings. Using professional falconers and trained birds, you will have the chance to photograph species such as golden eagle, sea eagle, peregrine falcon, tawny owl and eagle owl, as they fly amidst the wild landscape of the Czech Republic. We will fly the birds in appropriate habitat, including over water, enabling you to capture natural-looking and spectacular pictures that would be almost impossible to achieve with wild birds without months of work. Guidance and tuition on how to get the best from each situation will be available throughout both days from a professional photographer. Over the 3 days, you can expect a packed workshop of great photography, great company and great food in the beautiful Czech Republic.
