Wildlife Photography with Cain Scrimgeour

Capturing the beauty of nature isn’t just about the ability to use a camera; it’s about immersing yourself into the wild landscape, amongst the trees, grasses, ferns and mosses. Searching for those magical, and inspiring moments that we are privileged to experience, the moments that are destined to be observed and photographed.

Join Wildlife Photographer and Filmmaker Cain Scrimgeour at Wild Northumbrian to find these magical moments, learn the art of fieldcraft and immerse yourself in the wild landscape, to find those little natural stories, and gain an understanding of how to capture them.

Half day workshops £20.00 Adult/£15 child/£60 Family – minimum group size. Email Cain to discuss your requirements

The kids literally went wild playing in the stream and on the rope swing, at tea time spent cooking on the open fire followed by star gazing and hot chocolates. The yurt was romantic and had everything you need.
