Hosted by exclusively Nikon dealer Grays of Westminster and backed by Nikon U.K., the acclaimed wildlife photographer will deliver two one-day workshops at Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead.
For more than a quarter of a century, Heather Angel has been at the forefront of wildlife photography throughout the world via her prodigious writing, her workshops and lectures. Her exhibition Natural Visions toured the U.K. from 2000 - 2004 and was also on show in Kuala Lumpur, Cairo and Beijing. She is the internationally acclaimed author of fifty books and writes regularly for the worldwide photographic press. Through her lectures, workshops, and writing Heather has been recognized with worldwide honors and awards.
With Heather's inspiring and expert tuition in one of the most beautiful locations in the U.K., her yearly Wildlife & Natural History Workshops provide a rewarding opportunity to improve your photography. There are two one-day workshops from which to choose. These workshops have become one of the highlights of the photographic calendar.
Heather's presentation this year will have a distinctly oriental theme and be the premiere showing of exciting new images from the East. Featured topics will include baby snow monkeys from Japan in spring, as well as new panda images and bamboo forests, stone forests, tropical rain forests with monkeys and birds, mountains and alpine flowers from China.
The afternoon session will include a still life macro demonstration with Heather Angel and John McDonald from Nikon Solutions U.K.
Heather will demonstrate how to portray still life subjects indoors to the best advantage, selecting the lighting which is most appropriate for the subject - whether it is window light, flash, a light box, a light tent or fibre optics. You will then be able to try your hand at using one of several workstations which John will set up for use with the Creative Lighting System using the latest wireless technology with Nikon Camera Control Prosoftware. Flowers, fruits, shells and fossils will be provided for this still life session. This is a marvelous opportunity for you to gain instant feedback on composition and lighting from Heather.
The tickets, which include refreshments and lunch and dinner on the terrace, cost GBP175.00 for the day, and GBP150.00 for Nikon Owner subscribers. The workshop starts at 9.15 a.m. and runs until 5.00 p.m. Dinner is at approximately 6.30 p.m. To book your ticket(s) contact: Grays of Westminster today by telephone: ++44 (0) 20-7828 4925 or book online at www.graysofwestminster.co.uk
