With their distinctive shape and facial features, their arrow-like diving and beak-tapping courtship displays, gannets make wonderful subjects for photography.
Spend a day at a gannetry watching the UK's largest seabird as it nests, courts, roosts and fishes on cliffs and over the seas. Get eye-level as they expertly use the breeze to hang in the skies.
Pete will take you to a location on the east coast where you will be surrounded by gannets, providing images against all manner of backgrounds, helping highlight their features. And if possible, the workshop will last until sunset, to hopefully get some backlit or silhouetted images.
Plus, being by the coast there are opportunities for other species such as the graceful fulmar, as it effortlessly drifts along the clifftops.
There is a short walk of about 10 minutes to the cliffs, where you will be at times, close to the edge. If you suffer from vertigo, it might not be one to book, though there are photo opportunities without looking down...
