I will take you off the beaten track and away from busy tourist areas in the New Forest and show you hidden gems. You will learn about the natural habitat and what animals, plants and fungi can be found there. You will learn how to photograph the wildlife with minimal disturbance so that you get better more relaxed subjects and we can work on different techniques used to photograph smaller subjects such as flowers and fungi. I can provide as much photography help or learning as you need and as time will allow or show you what you are looking for and let you photograph them in your own way. We will meet at your accommodation or a prearranged starting point and the length of the walk can be tailored to suit your needs but generally the terrain is not difficult. Timing can be by mutual arrangement and I am not averse to pre-dawn starts for those special photos of red deer stags in the mist.
I have lived in the New Forest for over 35 years and in that time I have explored the forest extensively through my interests in Photography, mushroom picking, running and cycling. This means I have developed a great knowledge of the local wildlife in terms of locations and when things happen during the year. I am a professional photographer and in addition to my paid work I still love to photograph wildlife and local landscapes. I have also been involved in sales training and athletics coaching and now run small photography workshops and provide individual tuition as well as guided photography walks. If you also need accommodation Henry and Jo have rooms available through Air BnB
If you do not have your own transport I can meet you at your accommodation and we can use my car.

I can cater for any level of photography from the beginner to those looking for that competition winning entry. What we look for will be dependant on the time of year and local weather variations. The Guided Photography Walk can be arranged for any time of day but early morning or evening are best.
