Red Deer Rut Photography is a popular niche within wildlife photography, attracting many enthusiasts every year. During the rutting season, which usually takes place between September and November, male red deer compete for dominance and the opportunity to mate with females. This behavior provides photographers with a unique opportunity to capture stunning images of these majestic animals in an array of dramatic poses. The sound of roaring stags and the sight of antlers clashing create a truly unforgettable experience for both photographers and spectators alike. However, capturing these moments requires patience, skill, and a good understanding of the behavior of red deer during the rut.


The red deer rut is a thrilling natural event that attracts many photographers each year. To capture the best shots, it’s important to know the best locations for photographing these majestic animals. One great spot is Bradgate Park in Leicester, which is home to a large population of red deer and has plenty of open spaces for capturing action shots.


On this full day Photography workshop we will cover subjects such as Exposure, Focus, Composition, Lighting, and Post-Processing. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of how to use their camera settings to create well-exposed and properly focused images. They will also learn how to compose their shots using different techniques such as the rule of thirds, leading lines, and framing. Participants will gain an understanding of how lighting can affect their images and how to use natural light to their advantage. The workshop will be a hands-on experience, allowing participants to practice what they have learned and receive feedback from the instructor.

What’s included

  • All my knowledge of the photography that we are doing
  • Full day’s parking fees
  • A gift package worth more than £10 (For new customers only)

Equipment needed for red deer rut photography

When it comes to photographing the red deer rut, having the right equipment is crucial. For starters, a high-quality camera (Bridge camera or above) with a fast shutter speed and a long lens is essential. A tripod or monopod will also come in handy for steady shots. In addition, a good pair of binoculars can help you spot and track the deer from a distance. Dressing appropriately for the weather and terrain is also important, as you spend hours outside in cold and possibly wet conditions. Finally, it’s important to respect the deer and their environment, keeping a safe distance and avoiding any actions that could disturb them during this important time.

Equipment I recommend

  • Camera and spare batteries
  • 300mm telephoto lens or longer is required
  • Sturdy tripod
  • Camera cover or if you don’t have one you can use a plastic bag (just in case it rains)
  • Lens/camera cleaning equipment
  • Warm clothing
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Pack lunch and drinks


With the nature of this photography, we can not guarantee that you will see all the animals listed. Also, the course will go ahead whatever the weather so any payment made is non-refundable unless extreme circumstances dictate otherwise and due to our opinion.

If you choose to use one of our cameras you will be responsible for any damage, and will have to pay for any repairs that may be required whilst the camera was in your care.

We will not be held responsible for any of your own equipment damage, theft or personal injury while attending the course/workshop, participants do so at their own risk!

If you pay a deposit you will be required to pay the remaining balance 48 hours before the day of the course. If you fail to pay the full amount before the day of the course you will lose your deposit and will not be able to attend the course.
