In the weeks running up to the Snake workshops I will be out checking to see where the Adders & Grass snakes are showing best. The Adders & Grass snake are completely wild and free, they are un-predictable and I cannot guarantee them. However I have been photographing these snakes for over 7 years and I know my sites extremely well & I have always been able to find them.
The Adder & Grass snake workshops are specifically focussed on finding and photographing them. Shy & difficult to find let alone photograph. The adder is non-aggressive. With patience and good field craft we aim to track down grass snakes & adders to photograph them in their natural environment. To get close up and photograph snakes as they warm up after their winter dormancy
