Teaching Photography - The Farne Islands

June 22, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Despite living and working in the North East of England, I had never visited The Farne Islands.  I now realise what I have missed!  Myself and the students were immersed into the world of birds and seals. It's their world and we respected that by following all the rules laid down by The National Trust who manage the Islands.  

When I first arrived, I really didn't know which way to point my lens!  There was photographic opportunities everywhere!  I followed a bit of advice though and went much deeper into the island and then worked back towards the landing point.  We had two hours on Staple Island and two hours on Inner Farne Island.  Ample time to get the wonderful photos that the location demanded.  From sitting Shags and Razorbills to the flying delights of Puffins. 

If you would like to visit The Farne Islands with a professional photographer at hand to help you get some great photos, then take a look at the Going Digital North East website for up and coming courses.  This course is usually held in June of each year as this is the main breeding season for the Puffins.
