Free wildlife photography lesson for Lichfield residents

Chasewater Country Park

Chasewater Country Park

Lichfield residents are being given the chance to take a free lesson in wildlife photography.

Lichfield District Council’s Countryside Team, in partnership with Lichfield Camera Club, is holding the free session at Chasewater on April 25 from 10am to 12.30pm.

The informal workshop is for anyone with a love of nature – but it’s especially aimed at people with little or no experience photographing wildlife.

Photographer Martin Fisher, along with members of Lichfield Camera Club, will be on hand to show you how to snap the beautiful wildlife in the idyllic setting of Chasewater County Park. The main focus will be on the great variety of insect and plant life found around Chasewater, and there will also be an opportunity to consider how to photograph some of many birds on the lake itself – such as swans, coots, great crested grebes and ducks.

Martin explained:

“This event will be a great way to discover more about photography and to focus on the beautiful surroundings of Chasewater Country Park. Please remember to wear suitable outdoor clothing, and to bring your camera which can be of any kind including digital.”

Places are limited, so booking is essential. To reserve your spot, callLichfield District Council’s Countryside Team on 01543 308183 or email
