HIDE HIRE.

I have a bird watching / bird photography hide for hire on a daily basis situated on private land just east of Norwich. The hide has two seats and will accommodate 2 adults and 2 tripods. In front of the hide at a distance of 6 metres I have purpose built features such as tree stumps and branches to give attractive images with clean backgrounds. A 300mm lens or longer would be required. It is fed on a daily basis with a selection of feeds to attract many different species of birds. Species of birds currently visiting the hide are Blue, Great, Coal and Long Tailed tits. Chaffinch, Green and Gold Finches, Wren, Robin, Blackbird, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Collard Dove, Stock Dove, Pheasants, Magpie, Dunnock and On occasions you will see Sparrowhawk, Jay, Yellowhammer, Redpoll, Siskin, Brambling and Buzzard and if you're really lucky you may get a fox come in to eat the Buzzard food.



The price for hire is £50 a day for up to 2 people.



TUITION DAYS.

If you are new to DSLR photography and wish to improve your knowledge and skills or an experienced amateur wishing to expand your understanding of photography, I offer 1 to 1 photography days in the local area. These days can be based around wildlife, landscape or a bit of both. Wildlife 1 to 1's are either at the local RSPB nature reserve or at my private hide site. You will learn the best settings to use and how to get the best out of you camera. Landscape days are normally either at the coast or on the broads area. On these days you will learn how to use different filters to give effects, the best settings to use to get the best results and to understand the benefits of using manual rather than automatic settings on the camera.

There is no fixed routine to these days and they can be tailored to suit individual needs etc. If you would like to attend with another photographer this in not a problem.

The price for tuition is £50 for a 4 hour session and then £15 per hour for each hour after.


MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY DAYS

These Macro days are intimate with a maximum of 4 photographers and held 2 miles East of Norwich. Here I will set up a selection of frogs and insects with various natural coloured back grounds and also give you the choice of colours if you fancy something a bit different. You will be given tuition and guidance on taking the image, using on and off camera flash, how to get Hi and Low key images plus the basics if required. A Macro lens and independent flash is beneficial but not essential for these days. The sessions last 3 hours and cost £40 per person payable on the day.
