Fallow Deer in front of the RuinsNearly eight centuries ago Bradgate Park was enclosed as a deer and hunting park.  Today it is still home to herds of Red and Fallow Deer.

These workshops are timed to coincide with the annual Red and Fallow Deer rut which will have reached its frenetic peak during the month of October. You will be taken to the best areas in search of Deer, which will range from females with calves and large dominant stags fighting for their attention.

The Stags at this time of the year are magnificent. We will have worked out in advance the most dominant males and the females favourable feeding areas. This part of Leicestershire is a beautiful area during autumn and the photographic opportunities will be endless.

The intention will be to help people explore capturing images of the deer rut that takes place in October.

The workshop is a full day starting at 7.00am to capture the beauty of the Park and deer and will last until dusk. The cost of the course includes car parking and a late breakfast is provided at the Conservatory Tearooms (take out due to Covid 19 guidance). All photographic standards are welcome and participants in this small group (just five places per course) can be assured of individual tuition. As the course is working with the Trust people will also have the opportunity to visit Sanctuary, which is not possible with other courses, providing a unique experience.
