Wildlife Photography for 12 – 16 year olds with Victoria Hillman at RSPB Ham Wall

Introduction to Wildlife Photography for 12 – 16 year olds with Victoria Hillman.

Join Victoria Hillman and delve into the world of wildlife photography. This half day workshop for 12-16 year olds will explore how to photograph nature, from looking in hedgerows and ponds to spending time in the hides on the reserve. We will be looking for anything and everything from birds and mammals to plants and invertebrates. From where to look for and how to find subjects through to how to photograph them in their natural habitat causing minimal disturbance, we’ll explore capturing portraits, behaviours and in habitat images.

Victoria is a Wildlife Researcher, Photographer, Artist, Writer and Guide. She will be running courses at Ham Wall throughout the year. Discover more of her work here:
