Photographers get the chance to go wild

Anyone keen to shoot wildlife - through a camera lens - could benefit from a specialist weekend course in the heart of the Peak District.

Losehill Hall, the Peak District National Park's centre for environmental learning, is running Wild Images, a wildlife photography course for both digital and film camera users.

The course, from July 22 to 24, will be led by Geoff Simpson, a professional photographer and zoologist whose work has been published in many magazines including BBC Wildlife, RSPB Birds and Practical Photography.

Designed for people who want to improve their wildlife photography, the course will include practical sessions out in the field, with tips on techniques such as how to approach the subject and getting the best aspects of light, colour and mood in a scene.

The course is £169, including accommodation and meals.

Losehill Hall, with 27 acres of parkland located in Castleton, has modern facilities with en-suite bedrooms, a restaurant that uses fresh local food, a bar and easy access by rail via Hope station.

For more details, contact Losehill Hall on 01433 620373 or e-mail
