As part of my looking at different aspects of photography I'm looking at shooting wildlife. The trouble is I haven't the first idea where to start.
Sooo, I thought the best way to learn is go on a workshop and who's the best wildlife photographer? Andy Rouse.
Anyone been on his workshops and were they any good?

Andy's a great wildlife photographer and he tells me that his workshops are really good (-: - a couple I know have been on several and they throughly enjoyed themselves. I think he's doing a beginner's course on wildlife photography techniques and field craft which should be suitable for you.
Been to one of his talk and slideshows last year. Very good guy and he has time for everyone to chat to him and hes not a big head either. i think if he doesnt know it its not worth knowing.
Was it anybody on here who went on them?
Mind you, it'll have to be sometime next year 'cos I'm on a Northscape workshop this month and, whilst they're damn good value, I've got Christmas, etc to save for so it'll take me a fair time to save for Andy's.
Do you reckon his workshops are good value for money?
Ive got to say - just because someone is a good photographer - doesnt mean they are a good teacher ... not really relevant but i thought id get that in!!
Is Andy not a good teacher?
All professionals charge a premium rate for workshops and Andy's no different - you get what you pay for I guess - why not email him and let him know what you're after. He does tend to work with big groups which dos'nt always suit everyone. BIG is 10 to 30.
I can confirm Andy is an excellent teacher, though Dan's comment is very relevant some profesionals are lets say are not so good and have the personality of a door mat.
Best of luck.
How big is "big", Geoff?
oops - edited in response to late edit in earlier post
daft old bat.
Did I make you look stooopid, Suzi?

I can cancel my subscription to 'Insults'r'Us' then, now that Boyd's in action.
Go and wash behind your ears.

Sorry Suzi, didn't see Geoff's edit, but I did edit my very first post.

So has Andy got a rubbish personality, Geoff? I don't know the bloke (other than his pictures) but it looks like you do. Or have come into contact with him. Did you go on one of his courses?
I've seen him at Focus hold a big group on the Pentax stand one year and Lowepro another. His style is in such situations is excellent. Very animated, full of personality and a real interesting experience. I can't comment on the small group, but I would imagine it's all the above with much personal attention thrown in.
Have seen him at Focus, very entertaining and straightforward manner. Impressed.
