Framing Biodiversity

Mandy Williams

Join resident nature and wildlife photographer, Mandy Williams, in the community gardens and orchard spaces of Riverside in Stirling. Situated in a loop of the River Forth, Riverside is a vibrant community close to Stirling city centre. Here a local group, Riverside Naturally, work with the community to create wonderful spaces that encourage biodiversity, support wildlife, and welcome people.

Mandy has a passion for photographing our local Scottish wildlife. Mandy picked up her camera again in her early 40s having given up photography in her late teens and since then has had work published by the BBC, wildlife magazines and won local competitions with her photographs. “I just love spending time in nature watching and photographing subjects in their natural habitat. My aim is to capture a moment which tells a story”

We will walk around Riverside ( 1 mile in total) through the Community Orchard. Paved path throughout. We plan to photograph rabbits, small birds including blue tits, blackbirds, wood pigeons, robins and if lucky we may see birds on the water such as swans and heron.

It will be a chance to learn about wildlife photography, some tricks on how to compose your photographs and how to tell a story with your images. Suitable for all levels from Phone Cameras to DSLR.
