The aim of the course is simple - by giving you the knowledge and understanding of how to use your camera to photography wildlife and landscapes , how to develop your field skills and acquire a better knowledge of the subjects you are photographing.
The reason for why I choose to shoot in the wild is simply that it is very challenging. And like all challenges, it is extremely rewarding. Shooting outdoors in an uncontrolled environment is significant harder than shooting in a controlled environment, such as a studio or with captive animals.
In nature you can't tell the sun when and where to shine, or tell the wind to stop blowing. You cannot predict which species you encounter and whether or not they feel like staying around for a quick photo.
Nature is essentially uncontrollable and as such, when you adopt it as your working environment a lot can - and does - go wrong. Once you've mastered shooting in the wild, taking pictures in a studio is easy.
Ultimately, in my opinion, nature and wildlife photographers need to shoot in the wild. Nature photography is all about showing the beauty of the world surrounding us, its intricacy and diversity. And that just cannot be done in a studio, high-tech as it may be. Personally, I believe wildlife photography should be done in nature, nowhere else.

As with all wildlife photo training courses we cannot guarantee the presence of the wildlife species or how close we can get to photograph any species(the welfare of wildlife comes first) as they are very unpredictable, but we have a very good success rate in the past and 1:1 or 2:1 courses usually allow closer approach to wildlife than larger groups
