I spent the evening of 29th of July and the morning of the 30th to photograph the gannets at Troup Head, Scotland.  You can check out a video I made from my visit along with many others on my YouTube Channel

If you want to dive deeper into learning wildlife photography you can sign up to my Patreon site to view a behind the scenes video of my visit where I discuss my settings and approach  to the different photos.  On Patreon I have a growing library of videos to help you improve as a wildlife photographer.

I have created a Patreon site where I release extra video content to help you improve as a wildlife photographer!

I start with the 3 learning pathways:

  • 1. Technical (settings)
  • 2. Composition (everything we choose to include in our frame)
  • 3. Field Skills (research, planning, finding and getting close to wildlife).
