Photography workshops

Ben is hosting two one day workshops on Saturday 9 November and Sunday 10 November at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

His wealth of experience includes being the official photographer for the BBC programme, Planet Earth, with Sir David Attenborough, winner of the ‘Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ in 2007 and judge for the 2011 British Wildlife Photography Awards.

In this full day interactive workshop, Ben will share his knowledge on how to take a great wildlife photograph. The workshop will include the following:

  • time to take photographs and try some new techniques
  • opportunity to download and discuss images photographed
  • Q&A session
  • time for Ben to demonstrate a couple of techniques

The cost of the workshop is £100 (includes lunch) and we are limiting the numbers to ensure plenty of one to one time with Ben.

You must book in advance for these events by calling 01704 891220 or emailing
