This is a full-day workshop (approximately 8 hours) at RSPB Bempton Cliffs where we will be looking at and photographing the seabirds. We will also be covering camera settings i.e shutter speed, iso, aperture, the histogram, and white balance.

You will need a good level of fitness for this workshop because we will be doing quite a bit of walking also you will need good footwear. You may also need to bring waterproof clothing just in case of bad weather as this workshop will go ahead whatever the weather.

Razorbill Nuzzle

To photograph seabirds and wildlife along the cliff top the problem is getting close enough, so you will need a suitable camera with a lens focal length of at least 200-300mm a 500mm or a 600mm would be ideal also if you want to do some landscape you will need an 18-55mm or similar. You may also wish to bring a pair of binoculars with you.


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

We will not be held responsible for any equipment damage, theft or personal injury while attending the walk 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.
