Birds of Prey day - The Flash Centre Birds Of Prey Day, sponsored by Canon, will be held on the 5th October 2009.
On the 5th October The Flash Centre will be hosting a very unique Birds of Prey workshop at the Barn Owl Centre in Gloucester, in association with Canon UK and 2 of the countries top wildlife photographers Danny Green & Mark Sisson.
This full day workshop will be hosted by TFC with Danny & Mark leading the photo sessions, both full time professional wildlife photographers with many years experience. They also collectively run Natures Images, a wildlife photography mini-break and holiday business. The pair will be sharing some of their techniques to achieve fantastic results when photographing both action and static shots.
The Barn Owl Centre is located just 2 miles from Gloucester City Centre and is set in 12.5 acres of natural settings. The centre will be closed to the public for the day so we have the very best chance to get the most from the time available.
There will be plenty of opportunity to photograph a stunning collection of birds including falcons, hawks, and owls with the emphasis on UK species. Subjects include Barn Owl, Black Barn Owl, Falcons, Harris Hawks, Tawny Owl, Little Owl, Long Eared Owl, Golden Eagle, Kestrel, Buzzards and the amazing Eagle Owl. The greatest care taken to present the birds in the most natural settings. Why not take this unique opportunity to hone your skills, with both flying and static shots.
As well as the fantastic birds and location, Canon will be bringing along their range of professional cameras along with 300, 400 & 500mm lenses plus accessories for you to use and try during the day. Some of their range of printers will also be available to produce beautiful prints of the day's events.
Canon and Flash Centre staff will be on hand to offer help and advice on every aspect of your camera/lighting/shooting techniques. The day will run from 10am to 4.30pm with numbers limited to 2 groups of 12. The special price of £75 for the day includes a light lunch. An Ideal opportunity for the photography enthusiast looking for some great and unique pictures and use some of the world¹s best equipment.
