Birds of Prey Photography

That incredible wingspan in full flight those ferocious claws – this is the beauty of birds of prey photography! These very special wildlife photography days take place at a farm centre near Abingdon in Oxfordshire. Home to over 90 different birds of prey this is your chance to photograph these magnificent creatures all day long.Run as a conservation and education centre the falconers here are incredibly dedicated knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. These birds of prey photography days will show you just how well trained these raptors are – they don’t even flinch when faced with the long lens of an enthusiastic photographer. In fact they rather like being the centre of attention and love nothing better than to puff up their chests – and pose!We think you’d agree the birds are incredibly photogenic. A macro shot of the steely blue eyes of an Eagle Owl an evocative frame of a Falcon flying over water with its own reflection or even capturing that split second moment the wings of a Hawk flap before take off. This is the stuff of wildlife photography dreams. We can just imagine a stunning shot of your favourite raptor that you took yourself hanging proudly as a canvas over the sofa.The skilled staff on are on hand to assist with the birds to help you get the very best opportunities to photograph. For example they’re very adept at hiding the Jesses from view (saving you a photoshop job afterwards!). From simple but very effective portrait shots of birds on their perches to snapping the raptor in full hunting mode or atmospheric in flight images the falconry team is on hand to make it happen. That leaves you to concentrate fully on your camera set up and getting yourself into position.Most guests on these birds of prey photography days are keen to capture native British birds of prey in flight and there’s plenty of opportunity to do just that when you attend the regular flying demonstration that’s part of the day’s itinerary. You’ll have access to all areas (as long as you’re not blocking spectators’ views) and will be able to move around inside the arena too. All this means you’ll be able to get in position for those unobstructed angles and viewpoints you’ve always dreamed of.
