Renowned wildlife filmmaker and passionate conversationalist, Richard Brock worked in the BBC Naturals History Unit for 35 years producing many of the BBC's flagship wildlife series, including the Life on Earth and Living Planet. To become actively involved in tackling environmental challenges around the world, Richard left the BBC and established his own independent production company Living Planet Productions. He recently founded the Brock Initiative, using his archive of film footage and to educate communities and decision makers around the world about local conservation issues.
From the Serengeti to Cheddar Gorge...
At this special evening Richard will recount his work with David Attenborough, filming in far flung corners of the globe, his conservation efforts with native species, such as the Water Voles and Red Squirrels here at home, as well as the vital international conservation work of the Brock Initiative.
Digital Photography & Photoshop Day with Heather Angel and Giles Angel
New Autumn Date... Monday 11th October 2010
We are pleased to announce the latest date for this popular workshop, led by Heather Angel, a top professional wildlife photographer with over fifty published books to her name, and her son, Giles Angel, a commercial photographer and digital re-toucher.
The day will combine tuition and photography, with the usual wonderful opportunities to get images of the animals here at the Centre. The day starts with a presentation from Heather, with expert advice on composition and lighting, followed by sessions inside some of the enclosures. Giles will explore the use of Photoshop to enhance your images, together with practical advice on making the most of problem images.
It promises to be an exciting and varied day and adds up to a great package for anyone interested in improving their photographic skills and gaining an insight into processing and enhancing digital images with photoshop.
