Birds Of Prey Photography Workshops

We currently have two professional wildlife photographers working with us at SMJ Falconry: Tony & Carol Dilger and Paul Miguel. These take place here in Oxenhope, West Yorkshire near the borders with North Yorkshire and Lancashire.

To follow is a description of each of their popular workshops:

Tony & Carol Dilger

Join pro wildlife photographers Tony & Carol Dilger for a spectacular day photographing iconic birds of prey in fabulous Bronte country. Make the most of genuine Yorkshire moorland and woodland habitat for breath-taking portraits of falcons, hawks and owls and get to grips with the intricacies of flight shots under ideal conditions. Tony and Carol are past masters of capturing bird flight and their easy-going style makes for a relaxed and rewarding day-long session. Lunch is included, plus a short lecture on camera settings for flight photography, along with a few gems of photographic wisdom and top tips.

About Tony & Carol Dilger

Famed for their creative approach to capturing nature, Tony and Carol are a husband-and-wife team of globe-trotting professional wildlife photographers, whose work is highly regarded and widely published. They are regular exhibitors and their multimedia lectures are deservedly popular. They are highly qualified too; Tony is one of very few photographers to hold a First class BA Honours degree in Wildlife Photography and Carol, a real people-person, has that gentle touch and sensitivity of an artist. Their originality and creative style is what makes their work outstanding and it is this conceptual approach to image making that they hope to pass on through their workshops and safaris.
