Photography Workshops

Gauntlet's Photography Workshops are designed for photographers of all ages and experience. They provide a unique opportunity to photograph the birds from the center up close under the guidance of one of our professional photographer team. You will get the chance to shoot a varied selection of birds from Gauntlet's famous collection in natural outdoors settings.
Gauntlet run Photography Workshops throughout the year.

Our photography experiences are run as a 3 hour "half day" experience, or 6 hour "full day" experience (full day experience includes lunch). Both can be bought online as a gift voucher, or you can call us to book and pay over the phone. So that everyone has the best opportunity to get that great shot places are limited on each date.

Meet the photographers!

Ralph Dickinson

Shaun Wilson

During your workshop you will be guided by one of our experienced photographers Ralph Dickinson or Shaun Wilson.

Both Ralph and Shaun have been visitors to Gauntlet for many years and in that time have provided us with many beautiful images of our birds, simply from standard visits to the center.

During your workshop you will be able to tap into their knowledge and expertise in regards to getting the best shots, assistance on camera function, and support in getting that all important mid air flying shot!

Visit their Facebook pages to see a little more about their work, they both have their own individual approach and style so if you've completed a workshop with one, why not try another with the other!
