Angela Massingham Wild West Offshore Adventure June 2017

Angela produced an impressive gallery that really summed up what the Wild West Offshore Adventure is all about! She captured numerous shots of dolphins jumping clear of the water, plenty of gannets in flight and stunning back-lit images of shearwaters rafting in a setting sun.

Skomer galleries by Emma and James

Emma and James had a great day out on Skomer on one of the May workshops. The island was at its floral best with a carpet of pink thrift at Skomer Head.

"James and I had the most fantastic day with you on the photography course. We learnt so much, not only about photography, but also about Skomer and it's flora and fauna. As you can see I did manage to get some puffins in flight!!!!!

Thank you so much for such a great day. I will be back not only to Skomer, but to another of your photography courses (sorry and brace yourself he he). Thank you for your enthusiasm and patience (particularly when it came to spotting the little owl!).

A day we will never forget."

Wild West Offshore Adventure - Mia's gallery

Mia also managed to get some great shots of the common dolphins after a quick crash course in photography before coming the Skomer Workshop the next day.

Wild West Offshore Adventure - galleries by John and Margot Newman

Some lovely shots from the Wild West Offshore Adventure last week from John and Margot.
"It was a real privilege to be part of this trip with dolphins swimming under and around the bow of the boat.
The thousands of gannets on Grassholm island was a sight to behold and Manx Shearwater skimming the sea in the sunset was something else.
All with expert tuition and guidance from Andy - this is an experience not to be missed."

Puffins in flight

Skomer Island is still providing numerous opportunities to capture images of puffins in flight. There are a number of backgrounds to choose from the dark of the Wick cliff to the sky and then the sea mayweed that is covering the coastal slopes at this time of year.
There are still places available on all workshops apart from the 8th July.

Tawny owl

Managed to catch the tawny owl sunbathing yesterday in a lovely setting in Pembrokeshire.

Wild West Wildlife Offshore Adventure 18th June 2017

The shearwaters in the wonderful light at sunset were probably the highlight for me on the trip last Sunday evening.

Gallery by Simon Pearce

Simon, Derek's son-in-law, was not outdone on the day and also managed to capture a puffin in flight with sandeels shot.

Fantastic gallery by Derek Trendell

Derek Trendell captured an amazing set of images of different subjects on the workshop last Tuesday including a seal, jackdaw, razorbill, guillemot in flight and the holy grail shot of a puffin in flight with its beak full of sandeels with the perfect dark backdrop of the Wick.
