Wildlife Photography Talk at "Individuals" Photography Exhibition

£20 per person

Come and join Matthew for a guided tour of his exhibition "Individuals", a wildlife photography exhibition of photos from the Maasai Mara in Kenya. During the talk, Matthew will walk around the exhibition with you, giving you stories behind how the photos came about, and tips on how to improve your wildlife photography using creative compositions, interesting light and finding ways to tell stories. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and have open discussions too. The talk is taking place on Monday 26 June from 6.30-8.00pm. Drink included.

The exhibition "Individuals" focuses on telling the personal stories of the animals Matthew spent time with in the Maasai Mara. By highlighting these unique, personal stories and showing animals to be emotional individuals rather than just an anonymous statistic in a wider population, he hopes to promote a desire to protect and care for this precious wildlife. Through the exhibition, he is supporting Mara Predator Conservation Programme (MPCP) and Conservancy Guardians with the amazing work that they do in the Mara. You can read more about the exhibition here.

The exhibition itself is free to enter, so if you can't make the guided talk, please do feel free to just come along at any point. The exhibition is running from 22 June to 2 July at 19 Kensington Park Road, London, W11 2EU and is open from 10am to 6pm daily.

No two photography workshops are exactly the same, as it's impossible to know where the deer might be on any one day and where will be best given the lighting conditions. In general, this wildlife photography workshop will run as follows:

Meet: Richmond Park Gates. I will offer a brief overview of the session, before setting straight out to explore Richmond Park in search of wildlife.

Wildlife photography: If required, I will initially discuss camera settings, ensuring you are completely confident with your camera and set up correctly ready to capture that amazing moment. While the 600 Red Deer and Fallow Deer might be considered the main event, Richmond Park also offers the opportunity to photograph plenty of other wildlife too. We will keep our eyes peeled for playful squirrels, bright green Ring-necked Parakeets, Kestrels, swans and abundance of other bird life around Pen ponds. This workshop is always timed with sunrise or sunset, giving the best chance of beautiful golden hour sunlight!

“Apart from Matthew’s unique talent as a Photographer, he has the gift of inspiring, encouraging and giving confidence to his pupils. He is generous in sharing both his knowledge and time with patience and understanding.” Jean Dance
“The London workshop was amazing! It was exactly what I needed to learn the basics of photography. Matthew is really friendly and a great teacher. While I was getting to grips with the basics, there were others in the group with a lot more experience, but he gave us all individual attention. A great teacher for all levels. I absolutely loved my day on Matthew’s course and would recommend it to anyone!” Freddie Waters

Other: Please wear sturdy trainers as we walk a few kms on some uneven ground. Wrap up warm if it is a cold day. The temperature drops quickly after the sun sets!
