Macro photography workshop

Nemoptera bipennis

Nemoptera bipennis is a species of net-winged insects endemic to the Iberian Peninsula, though they are also known to be found in Morocco and southern France.
They are also called “pixies” in Spanish because of how elegantly they fly and how subtly they blend into their surroundings when perched.

They are not dragonflies or butterflies – they are actually related to antlions and owlflies, all of which are neuroptera and belong to one of the rarest and most beautiful groups of insects.

This Nemoptera bipennis photography workshop is an introduction to photographing such a special species, which involves training the eye to spot them and applying some approach tricks and photographic techniques to help get shots that capture the true beauty of these creatures.

The workshop will be eminently practical, which means we will be learning the techniques and tricks hands-on by putting them into practice with the subjects we come across during the session. We will also be working in a small group to ensure each participant receives individualised attention and gets to make the very most of this activity.

To organise this workshop we have partnered with FotoRuano, who will kindly lend us photography gear for our customers to use and enjoy.
For logistical reasons, this service (free of charge) will be available only when bookings are made sufficiently in advance so we can arrange to have the gear sent to us in the right conditions.
