Red Squirrel Wildlife Photography
Adorable, iconic and elusive, red squirrels are a symbol of Scotland that every wildlife photographer wants to see.
However these shy creatures are hard to find and even harder to photograph. Come join us on this photography experience where we’ll give you some tips on how to capture perfect squirrel and other wildlife shots.

We’ll be heading up to Aberfoyle for the afternoon, to a wildlife reserve with an excellent Red Squirrel hide.
What if it rains?
The hide is covered on 3 sides, so unless it’s a terrible storm we should be out of the worst of it. We still recommend good boots and waterproofs for all attendees.
What will the experience involve?
Photography experienced are hands on oppurtunities with some light tutoring. The focus will be on photographing red squirrels, however the area also has many species of bird including woodpeckers.
What will we learn?
We’ll cover important wildlife photography techniques such as shutter speed, focussing and anticipating the subject.
An SLR or bridge camera with a telephoto lens is a must, as the animals are close but are quite small.
Are we guaranteed to see squirrels?
As with all wildlife photography there are no guarantees as these are wild animals. However the park rangers are confident they are in residents and I’ve never been dissapointed by a visit.
How do I arrange transport?
We will be meeting at the nature reserve so driving is recommended. However if you take public transport there is a bus service to Aberfoyle.
