Norfolk Photo Safaris News Spring 2019

Welcome to my latest newsletter.

It has been a very busy winter for Norfolk Photo Safaris, clients have come from around the World including Australia, USA, France, Germany, Holland and Spain. Although we never enjoyed a cold snap this winter the weather has been largely very good for photography with lots of sunny days here in Norfolk. Photographic highlights have included dancing Adders, some great Barn Owl opportunities, lots of hares in nice situations and in January with a Spanish group we found this very rare melanistic Grey Seal pup.

For the 2019 / 20 season I am offering some new opportunities and a new 3 day itinerary starting in early November that has an exciting mix of subjects representing some of the best photography opportunities Norfolk has to offer. This photo safari will include seals, and a wide selection of wintering birds including our exciting Night Owls shoot. To get a taste of the Night Owls I have included a short video clip on the Owls page of www.norfolkphotosafaris.com

Many of you have asked about the Knot spectacular on the Wash. It is a World class photo opportunity and so to coincide with the best Spring Tides I have listed a number of dates when this will be available and combined with our Night Owls shoot which will make this an unforgettable days photography.

Overseas trips

Further afield, in conjunction with Shetland Nature and Finnature, myself Brydon Thomason, Jari Peltomaki and a wonderful group of clients we enjoyed a fantastic winter tour to Finland and Arctic Norway in January. The photography was outstanding, our 2020 tour is already full but we plan to run this week again in 2021.


Following on from my switch to Olympus last year, I am delighted to announce I have been made an Olympus Mentor which covers a multitude of roles but which is awarded to photographers who are taking creative and outstanding imagery with Olympus equipment. This partnership means I have some Olympus gear available to use on Photo Safaris, so if you are thinking of switching and want to see how it performs this can be a perfect opportunity.

I will be on the Olympus stand at the Rutland Bird Fair this August, so do come along and have a go with the latest Olympus gear and say hello.

Do take advantage of my discount code if you are buying new Olympus gear from the Olympus online shop. Use DTVIP15 at checkout.

Pensthorpe Bird Fair

Talking of bird fairs I will have a stand at the Pensthorpe Bird & Wildlife Fair here in North Norfolk on the 18th and 19th May.

Finally I end this newsletter with an image by David Stenning taken on a Night Owls shoot this winter. You can enjoy more of David’s work at www.wildlifefocused.co.uk
