About the event

Discover how to get the very best from your camera and achieve incredible wildlife photography at this online talk, with professional photographer Andrew James.

Andrew’s talk will cover the technical and creative challenges of photographing wildlife in the UK. He’ll look at the gear you need to be a successful wildlife photographer, as well discuss composition, species, and how to find that perfect balance between the main subject and its environment. Covering everything from butterflies in your back garden to ospreys catching trout at breakneck speed, his talk will give you the inspiration you need to get out more with your camera.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions after the main presentation.
