Bird Photographer of the Year judge, award winning nature photographer and Manfrotto ambassador Victoria Hillman offers macro and nature photography workshops in Somerset and across the UK, with a choice of specific dates or book a tailor-made 1-2-1 or as a group.

During the workshop you will learn how to capture characters, work in tricky habitats and create more artistic images using aperture and lighting in the field, not to mention how to photograph different species responsibly and ethically. Depending on the workshop, multiple locations are visited and arranged at a time of day that gives the best chance to photograph the target species.

Customer Comments:

“Thank you for arranging our trip to see the dragonfly roost. It was a spectacular experience and your guidance and expertise allowed me to capture images that I will treasure.” Sue Cro

“I've been on macro shoots with Victoria - the first one I went to transformed my dull 'normal' shots of small plants into something worth seeing. The second session saw us all lying flat in the dewy grass waiting for the sunshine to creep to the perfect point against which to photograph orchids: Victoria's assistance is perfectly suited to the level at which the photographers attending finds themselves on their photography journey. You have the benefit of learning significant amounts about the subjects which you find as well, which is both interesting and helps to capture photographs of some of the subjects.” Sarah Rushton

“I’ve taken part in several workshops with Victoria. Not everyone can take great photographs and teach, but Victoria manages to do both. Her workshops are informative, her photographs are inspirational, and the whole experience is fun and relaxed.” Robert Cragg.

"It’s always a real treat to join Victoria on one of her workshops, her knowledge of the subjects and awesome photographic skills come together and make it an extremely enjoyable and educational day. And of course not to mention tea and cake!" John Bradburn
