Grey Seal Workshops - Norfolk (1 Day)
Norfolk has a stronghold of grey seals and every winter thousands line the beach to give birth to their pups. It's a great time to photograph the seals as a lot is happening. The white furry seal pups are dotted all over the beach. The males are getting ready to mate and regular fights occur to show dominance. Also, the females will be protecting the pups from the males creating more action on the coastline. I have worked with the seals for the past 8 years and know the site extremely well.
The workshop will allow you to get within a good range of the seals and to gain some beneficial low vantage points. A 300mm lens is normally enough, but longer lenses may give you more options. The beaches themselves create a beautiful landscape within which to photograph the seals. As it is an important time of year, it is vital not to disturb the seals so there will be two slots available on each side of the key pupping period. September and November workshops will be concentrating on adult Grey Seals and Common Seals. January will be adults, pups and pupping, (except non-weaned pups). The rest of the year has haul outs of around 40 seals, a mixture of Greys and Commons.
