We had a fantastic photography experience in Northumberland in August.
Getting up at 4 am and going to bed at 11 pm and doing it all again (and again) is not everyone's idea of a good time, but to us it was pure heaven!
You can see some of my pictures from the trip on my Blog.
The next Northumberland experience is scheduled for 18-21 June and the focus then will be on the wonderful wildlife as much as the incredible landscapes of this amazing county. (Sir David Attenborough has said that the Farne Islands are his favourite wildlife location in the UK.) There are only three places so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Unfortunately we couldn't get the numbers to make the planned Lake District weekend work, which means that I'll now be photographing the supermoon on Monday the 28th September at a promising location in Kent. If you're interested to join me for this then let me know; the cost will be £175 for a full day experience.
Looking beyond the supermoon we have another London architecture day in October, deer photography in November, Dungeness in December, the Jurassic Coast in January and Norfolk in February. Spaces are still also available on my wildlife photography day at the British Wildlife Centre in December.
Booking is now open for all these experiences and as usual you can view the current schedule of all the experiences on my website (apart from those that are advertised exclusively via my newsletter). Places are always limited so please do book early if you'd like to join one or more of these adventures.
African Safaris in 2017
With the expected arrival of our baby girl in about five weeks' time and the inevitable childcare implications, I've decided to move my safari programme forward to 2017. However the details of my two planned safaris remain the same as per my last newsletter, i.e.:
- August: 14 days South Africa. Cape Town, West Coast wildflowers, whales & some of the best big cat photography available anywhere. Total cost including international flights from the UK estimated to be in the region of £4,950.
- September: 15 days Kenya. Amboseli, Samburu, Mount Kenya region, Great Lakes, and three full days in the Maasai Mara to photograph the Great Migration. Total cost including international flights from the UK estimated to be in the region of £7,500.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you'd like to join me for one of these fantastic trips. Once I have an idea of numbers I will then finalise the details (including costs) with my operators and travel consultant partners. I am not taking deposits at the moment, just expressions of interest, and you can be assured that I will keep you informed throughout the process.
Photography Experience Days at Denbies Wine Estate
I've now run three of the four photography experience days at Denbies Wine Estate scheduled for this year and all have been very well received.
Booking is now open for the final experience day on Sunday 18 October. This should be a good one as we might well have some autumn colours in the vineyard.
