Seasonal woodland photography

‘To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…’ — Elliott Erwitt.

Woodlands are rarely ‘ordinary’ but they are notoriously difficult to photograph. They are also wonderful barometers of the seasons. This series of workshops allows like-minded photographers to immerse themselves in the woodland environment and ‘find the image’ they wish to capture.

These workshops may be booked individually or as a series.

For each season, we shall discuss and enjoy the woodland landscapes captured by highly-esteemed photographers. We will think about composition, subject and emotion. Detail or a wider view? Individual photographers will be encouraged to develop their own vision of the images they would like to find and create.

Workshops are timed to use morning or early evening light and you will need outdoor shoes, layers, waterproof coat and a torch. We may meet on location or at the Heritage Centre depending on the weather and the group and you will be advised shortly before the workshop. Bring a snack as we may be out and about when you feel peckish. Car drivers only as you will need to drive to a nearby location. All camera types welcome but be ready to immerse yourself in some woodland photography!

This workshop is being led by Deirdre Huston.

People do cancel and we do hold waiting lists. If the date you would like is full please do contact us and we can add you to the list. 

During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.

I am interested in alternative dates
