Wild Photographer

Explore Nature and Photography with us

We are a very small, tightly focused company, specialising in Wildlife and Bird Photography holidays and camera skills training. We find the species you want to see and help you to improve your photography and camera techniques, enabling you to capture the pictures you want.

No matter what your Photography skill level, we are here for you; ready to deliver wonderful experiences that will remain with you for life, and giving you a 'Photography Tool Kit' that will give you the skills you need to achieve your photographic ambitions.

Why book with us?

Do you prefer to be in a group of 10 people, or 3-4? Smaller groups mean we have to charge slightly more, but in return you get undivided attention, individual treatment and you are not herded around in a minibus...

Nick is an expert photographer and teacher - with 30 years experience as a professional photographer and 20 years of working with camera and software companies like Canon, Adobe, Apple, Phase One and Miscrosoft on product development and training, he has proven ability and the detailed knowledge of the craft of photography to help even advanced photographers improve their technique and the presentation of their photographs.

From camera setup to image processing and colour management, everyone will take plenty of knowledge away from these trips, together with a set of beautiful pictures of birds, wildlife and landscapes.

Our Holidays

We have options for 1:1 training and teaching days in Somerset, themed trips to Scotland and updated dates for Uganda (with optional Gorilla trekking!). If you have something in mind that is not mentioned, please message or drop us a line.
At this moment we do not have advertised dates as there is a book project and film work in progress. If you have a specific date or wish, please ASK!! We can fit shorter trips or weeks around your datess. If you have friends to join you, it gets even easier and prices can be more flexible.

Please see individual pages for holiday dates and prices.

Testimonials

Our trips are built on a passion for birds, photography and a great deal of hard work, to ensure the best possible experience. Our guests recognise this and we've had some lovely feedback. Here is just some that we have received:

I love taking photos of wildlife. Have done for many years but felt I needed to learn a bit more about getting a better photo. This trip really lived up to the expectations.

The tuition was delivered expertly by Nick who has an obvious passion for photography, wildlife and the environment. Within a few hours my photography had improved immensely

What I really enjoyed about the course was the small group. You got a lot more attention and help than what you would have had in a big group.

Glossy Ibis in a paddy field, contre jour, no lens hood. Sometimes mistakes look better than ‘proper’ pictures. Love the atmosphere of this image taken recently in Spain.

A juvenile Buzzard on a freezing afternoon. Despite their size and reputation, much of a Buzzard’s diet consists of worms and other invertebrates. Join me on a Somerset Photo Safari to photograph this bird and many others.

Penduline Tits in North Somerset. These charming birds, more normally seen in Spain and E Europe are only 10-11.5 cm long and working their way through the Bullrush seeds.
