Nature & Wildlife Photography in the Cotswolds

Wednesday 10th July 2024

You’re invited to join our Batsford Arboretum photowalk in the Cotswolds summer 2024.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and enjoyable way to learn more about photography and meet other like-minded shooters, this is a wonderful event to attend. This Gloucestershire garden photo walk is led by a professional photographer with years of experience to help you to improve your photos and understand your camera better.

Also included is an exciting visit to the nearby Cotswold Falconry Centre to allow you to capture incredible images of Kites, Falcons, Eagles, Hawks, Owls and more.

What's There?

This Batsford Arboretum photo walk will take you through some of the beautiful sights in this historic location. The collections at Batsford cover a wide range of plants from around the world with an emphasis on the Far East.

There are other amazing collections of Acers, Bamboo, Magnolias, Pinus and Sorbus trees too. There are adequate parking, cafe and toilet facilities on-site in the garden centre.

Over at the Cotswold Falconry Centre, you can admire and photograph beautiful birds of prey in a public flight display. 

Full details of the meeting point will be included in a confirmation email when you reserve your spot.

What Do I Need to Bring Along?

It doesn’t matter what camera equipment you have. During the photo walk, your tutor can show you what settings to use and when to make the most of a moment.

For photographing at the Cotswold Falconry Centre a longer telephoto lens would be useful, if you have one, but not compulsory.

Bring along a couple of memory cards and a spare battery too. It’s up to you if you want to take your tripod and lens filters, simply consider the location and the weather on the day.

How Long Does a Photo Walk Last?

This Batsford Arboretum and Cotswold Falconry Centre photo walk lasts approximately 6 hours.

During the walk, you’ll get to meet and speak to fellow photographers and find out more about what they enjoy shooting.

After spending the morning at the Arboretum photographing the beautiful flowers and foliage, we’ll break for lunch at the cafe (not included in the ticket price) and then we’ll head over to the Falconry Centre for a public flight display and a chance to walk around the other enclosures.

It’s a great way of making lasting friendships and connections with other like-minded shooters, especially if you usually shoot alone.
