This new course has been designed as an introduction to our exciting series of photography courses and a possible starting point for a new interest in Ecology. Starting with an overview of how naturalists of the past 150 years have shaped extremely strong relationships with the natural world. From Victorian pioneers to the influence of TV age characters, we look at how wildlife documentary film makers have pushed the boundaries of what can be captured giving us ever better insights of this planets diverse habitats and species. We will then explore how we can begin to use some of these techniques, to record, photograph, and map the life around us using a variety of visual techniques. No previous experience in photography or ecology is needed, all that is really required is an enthusiasm for the natural world! It has been designed with the bare minimum of technical requirements, just bring a working camera, digital compact or phone, or even a film camera as long as you have some way of getting the images off your camera onto a computer.
