Photographing Deer

Our website includes a stunning selection of deer images - mostly taken by BDS members and others provided by kind permission of their owners for educational use. A number of the pictures featured are from past BDS photographic competitions whilst others have just been shared for the enjoyment of visitors to the site.

One thing all the photographers have in common is a passion for their subject material, patience, an eye for a good photograph and being in the right place at the right time!

It doesn’t matter whether your choice is to use a high end SLR camera with serious lenses, a digital pocket camera or your smart phone, the ability to capture good images can be achieved with all.

BDS runs yearly photographic competitions and we hope some of the images on this site will inspire you to try your hand and take part. Take a look at our Photo Gallery to view some of these images.
