Following the success of its worldwide photography holidays, Exodus is enabling budding photographers to refine their skills closer to home with a series of new UK landscape and wildlife photography workshops.
With multiple dates available, the workshops will visit three of the RSPB’s most spectacular reserves in the South East: Dungeness in Kent, Pulborough Brooks in Sussex and Rainham Marshes in Essex.
Combining classroom learning with hands-on tuition, the workshops will be instructed by award winning photographer and tutor Dave Stephenson, whose wildlife and travel images have been published all over the world, and whose work takes in everything from big cats to huge primates, small lizards and everything in between.
Workshops in Rainham Marshes take place on April 19, May 28 and June 28. The location is a former World War II rifle range and now a refuge for wildlife on London’s doorstep. More than 270 birds of prey and rare birds have been recorded on the site, along with 31 species of butterfly and rare species of dragonfly.
Workshops in Dungeness take place on April 23, May 10 and June 2 and the location offers one of the largest expanses of shingle in the world. With more than 600 types of plant, guests will find insects such as moths, bees, beetles and spiders to photograph, as well as migrating birds.
At Pulborough Brooks, workshops are available on June 15, July 5 and July 9. The reserve is located within the South Downs National Park, offering far-reaching views over the Arun Valley. Visitors might catch a glimpse of the world’s fastest bird - the peregrine - as it stoops from the sky, and be able to spot wild ducks, geese, swans and other waders.
All workshops take place from 09:30-17:30 and cost from £150 per person.
