THE DEER BUGLING
(workshops with Alberto B. Scalia)

     

Cost = 290 € (with accommodation in a double room + dinner - single room supplement € 60)

Duration = 3 days (two nights)
Period = September-October
Participants = 3 to 7 people

The location for this workshop will be the valleys of the Abruzzo National Park. Here in the autumn dozens of large male deer congregate in arenas where, to the sound of fighting, are competing for females. Then you hear, at dusk and dawn, the mighty bugling of big stags. Though it is not "absolutely" sure to photograph these beautiful ungulates the chances of success are really very high. Anyway herds of females, young and males of the first and second year wandering around the villages to protect themselves from wolves, and will be relatively easy to photograph. You can also shoot the wolves and lynxes kept semicaptive by the Park.

On 16th of August 2016, will open the reservation list to which to register by contacting the organizer at the email listed below.
