Red Squirrel Photography Workshops

Jumping Red SquirrelJumping Red SquirrelA red squirrel leaping through the air in Northumberland.


Come and photograph the beautiful British red squirrel in the Northumberland countryside, just outside of Hexham. Join me in my woodland hide for a 1 to 1 session photographing this incredible mammal.

As well as red squirrels, many woodland birds visit all throughout the day, including redpolls and woodpeckers. I will be on hand to tell you about the red squirrels and their behaviour, as it is a topic I am deeply involved in. Optional tuition is included, where I will help you to develop your photographic skills.
It is in this woodland that I take all of my red squirrel images. The location itself is lovely, and the squirrels in the woodland visit each day and usually spend much of their time at the hide.
The hide is built for photography, and even includes a reflection pool so you can take stunning shots of squirrels reflected in water.
I no longer offer red squirrel workshops.. Instead, I recommend you book with another photographer, James. Click for more information.


“The hide set up is quite simply a wildlife photographer's dream. During a brief session, I always found that there was something to photograph, whether it be a redpoll or a red squirrel. Many thanks to Will for giving me the honour of sharing his set up."
- Sam Rowley (award-winning wildlife photographer)
“Will, for being such a young person, your professionalism, knowledge, dedication and expertise was very impressive. We will definitely be making another trip to the hide and to see the squirrels."
- Graham Bray & Penney Gray
“Had a great time on the Red Squirrel workshop today. It was lovely to see one of our most beautiful mammals up close. We managed to get some decent shots of Patch. Well worth it."
- Jane Dalrymple
