Wildlife Photography with Iain Green is a series of workshops exploring Europe’s largest urban wetland nature reserve, discovering the creatures great and small that call it home and studying the art of wildlife photography.
The workshops are led by Iain Green who has worked as a professional wildlife photographer, naturalist and author since 1997. Iain’s passion for the natural world has been inspired by his many travels across the world, however it is the nature on our very doorstep – often overlooked – that has provided an incredible source of wildlife wonder. The author of ‘Wild Tigers of BandhavgarhIain’s’ and ‘Tiger Jungle,’ it is his book ‘Wild London’ that showcases the fascinating diversity of wildlife found within the city – from ancient woodlands to the wildlife in 10 Downing Street!
Wildlife Photography with Iain Green will begin with an introductory session in the site’s Victorian and locally-listed Engine House where you can learn about the unique nature of both the wildlife and industrial heritage of Walthamstow Wetlands. You will then head onto the reserve to discover the many iconic birds, invertebrates and amphibians – from Cetti’s Warbler, Common Kingfisher and Great Crested Grebe to grass snakes, lizards and foxes. Iain will offer practical guidance and tuition throughout the day with plenty of opportunity for 1-2-1s for both beginners and intermediate photographers.
