We have had some great success on my workshops to the Isle of Mull in recent years getting very close to the illusive Eurasian otter, and the red deer. Come along to the Isle of Mull and experience the fantastic wildlife the island has to offer Eurasian otter, red deer, fallow deer, feral goat, common buzzards and there may be opportunities to get the white-tailed and golden eagles.
The group size is very small, only three people. This enables us to get close to the target species and give good opportunities for better tuition. The days will be spent searching around the sea lochs for the otters, Lochbuie, Loch Scridain, Loch Na Keal and Loch Spelvie in particular for the Eurasian otter with many stopping off points to observe red deer, feral goats, fallow deer, buzzards and eagles.
Bring your laptop along and in the evenings we can look at the pictures taken during the day and give advice on processing the images using Adobe Photoshop.
We will be staying at Arle Lodge which is an Eco lodge north of Salan on the east coast of Mull. Each photographer will have their own room. www.arlelodge.co.uk
Prime lenses are ideal, 400mm, 500mm and good sizes, 300mm with a tele-converter would also be a good size. Zoom lenses 100 – 4000 is a good size. A large bean bag and tripod are useful. Subdued or camouflage clothing is a must, waterproof jacket and trousers. Spare batteries, and CF cards.
