 Wild roe deer and bluebells | Wild roe deer summer rut

Wild roe deer and bluebells

Dates

Weekend 20th and 21st April 2024

Overview

Over the last ten years Jules has specialised in photographing European roe deer.

His work with these perhaps our most beautiful and beguiling species of native deer led to him working over two years on Wild Isles, Silverback Productions landmark series on the nature of the British Isles, presented by David Attenborough, which aired in March 2023.

Jules is also a photo ambassador for the British Deer Society who support these workshops.

Roe deer are highly adaptable and can be found in a variety of habitats. Primarily they are woodland species though and the ancient bluebell woods of Southern England offer perhaps the most beautiful backdrop to watch and photograph them.

Jules has walked these woods for over ten years and over that time has got to know successive generations of the deer that live there well.

The workshop is split into two sessions, starting at dawn and breaking at 11am, before resuming at 4pm and concluding at dusk when light levels in the wood prevent photography.

This specialist photography workshop is aimed at photographers of all abilities: from complete beginners just starting out looking for a helping hand, through experienced amateur enthusiasts to accomplished nature photographers looking to add wild deer and bluebells to their portfolio.

The workshop is conducted at a relaxed pace with the focus being on how to create beautiful images of our most beautiful species of deer together with the other species and ancient bluebell woods themselves that they call home.

During the workshop Jules will teach you the field craft he has learnt over many years spent in the field, needed to get close to truly wild deer.
