Let's get together and take some wonderful nature & wildlife shots to add to your portfolio.
We'll meet on Friday 22nd March 2019, at 13:00 outside Collici Cafe (Colicci, 138 Priory Ln, London SW15 5JP) next to the Rohampton gate car park and Park Cycle bike hire. We will then start taking a long walk in Richmond Park, soak up the fresh air and take photos of the beautiful landscape, the deer. The challenge is to compose your shots with no people or man-made objects in the background, so when we shoot deer, it would look like they were captured in their natural habitats.
Photographers of all levels are very welcome. Beginners and intermediate photographers are especially welcome. If you have a Nikon camera, you may be interested in one of my zoom lenses.
If you have any questions on how to get sharper, better composed shots, I'll be more than happy to help.
What you need to bring with you:
A DSLR or Mirrorless Camera with a Zoom or telephoto lens. Your kit lens is fine but a zoom or telephoto with 200mm or more reach would serve you really well.
How to get there:
By Public Transport:
The closest railway station to the Rohampton gate is Barnes Railway Station (SW13 0HT). It's Local to London Waterloo (Next station Putney). The distance between the Barnes railway station and Collici cafe is 1.4 miles. That's and a 20 minute walk.
When you get out of the station you take the following walking route:
Walk east on Station Rd
Turn left onto Vine Rd
Continue onto Priory Ln
Go through 2 roundabouts
Destination will be on the left
138 Priory Ln, London SW15 5JP
If you're driving, you can park your car free of charge opposite Rohampton Gate. I recommend parking just outside the Rohampton Gate because that way if we decide to stay longer and catch the sunset then you don't have to worry about the gates closing.
The road opposite the gate is actually called Rohampton gate and according to Google the post code is SW15 5JS. When you park there, you need to walk into the park through Rohampton gate, turn left after the mini round about and walk about a minute and Colicci is on your left.
