Dolphin Photography Workshops
I feel privileged to have grown up just a mile or so from Chanonry Point. A way back then in the 1980's we thought nothing of seeing the Dolphins swimming past our house, for many years we referred to them as just 'porpoises'. It's only in recent times that the popularity of this location has grown, and through an intensive field studies by both the WDS and Aberdeen University that so much more has been gleaned about these majestic creatures and the secretive lives they lead.
FACT: Photographing Dolphins isn't easy, it takes a depth of knowledge, lots of skill and pinch of good old fashioned luck to capture decent images of Dolphins. It's with this in mind that I'm now offering 'Dolphin Photography Workshops' these will consist of fun (but intensive) guidance in what camera settings to use, when and where the action is most likely to occur and a deep understanding of these creatures gained by yours truly over the past thirty years.
