If you would like to learn more about photography, and meet with like-minded individuals in a beautiful Grade II Listed park, then my small group Photography Workshops could be the perfect answer.
My Landscape Photography workshops take place in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes - which was recently recognised by Historic England as a Park of Special Historic Interest. I know it well as I live right next to the park, on the Grand Union Canal, and I shoot here regularly - both for landscapes and for portrait work.
We follow a pre-planned route around the park over three hours, taking in a variety of viewpoints. However, we will also be flexible on the day to take any specific seasonal or lighting conditions into account.
At each location I will make recommendations on different compositions and angles, as well as providing individual advice on camera settings, and anything else photography related that you would like to cover.
SCHEDULED WORKSHOP DATES
At the moment I am arranging workshops on a date that suits you - if you have three or four people who would like to attend. To arrange a session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can find a date that works for your group. The cost is £60 per person, which is payable on booking.
If you are interested in attending a scheduled workshop as an individual, please let me know and I can then advise you of upcoming dates as they are planned.
“I would definitely recommend Gill’s workshops as I learned so much in just three hours, and saw so many new places. Numbers are small so she gets to work with you individually, and is very knowledgeable on everyone’s equipment. Gill is a very good teacher and was very patient with me, as well as providing lots of helpful tips. I also liked how at the beginning of the workshop she asked us all what was one thing we would like to achieve from the workshop, and then delivered on that as well, even though it meant following up with extra information after the workshop had finished. That was really impressive. It was also great to spend an afternoon taking photos in the sunshine with a lovely group.”
My workshops are ideal for anyone who has a camera which offers the option for using manual settings - whether compact, bridge, DSLR or mirrorless/CSC. All levels are welcome, though please bear in mind that in this type of environment I will not be able to provide hands-on tuition for the entire session. If you are interested in 1-2-1 tuition, please click here for more information.
A tripod is not essential, but please bring spare batteries and SD cards if you have them. I'd also recommend wearing suitable footwear, as some areas of the park can become quite muddy, even in Summer! There are various free parking options around the edges of the park, and I will provide details, along with a map and information on where to meet, once you have booked.
Please note - all sessions are weather dependent, and if the forecast indicates a high likelihood of rain, I reserve the right to postpone, with a minimum of 24 hours' notice - but will only do so if absolutely necessary. A full refund will be given if the new date is not suitable.
To book, or for more information, please email email@example.com or call me on 07595 161855. I will be arranging set dates for individual workshop bookings later in the year, so please let me know if you would like me to message you when those are published.
I can also arrange bespoke workshops for sunrise and sunset if this may be of interest, so please contact me for more details on those - bearing in mind that conditions can never be guaranteed!
“I really enjoyed the workshop experience, it was the ideal refresher that I needed - just need to practice with this camera now. It was so wonderful to get out into the fresh air at Campbell Park with like minded people. Thank you again.”
