Mountain Hare photography days

The Mountain Hare is one of the most adorable creatures that we have here in the Highlands of Scotland. The Cairngorms and the hills around Strathspey are the best places to observe and photograph them. A firm favourite and one of my most popular workshops. This is a flexible one day photography workshop in summer or winter to capture your images of this beautiful, charismatic and hardy animal. 

A day out with Gary Hodgson to photograph the Mountain Hare will offer you the opportunity to get some special images. Over many years of experience I have found the best and quietest locations for this brilliant day out with Scotland's only native Hare.

The perfect base for this day workshop is in Aviemore and it is just a short drive to the location. For accommodation please see my recommended links or I can arrange this for you.

On your day out with me you will also gain the following:

  • Learn about the Mountain Hare and other montane species we may encounter during the day
  • Fieldcraft and how to approach the hares
  • Habitat
  • Mountain Hare information and facts
  • We may also see other wildlife in the area, depending on time of year
  • Safety in the hills, especially in the winter months. Gary is a fully qualified Summer and Winter Mountain Leader with 1st aid certificate and public liability insurance. 
  • Help and advice on photographic equipment/settings/composition
