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.
I know Campbell Park very well as I live right next to it on the Grand Union Canal, and we will follow a pre-planned route around the park over three hours, taking in a variety of viewpoints which have become some of my favourites over the years. 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 viewpoints, as well as providing individual advice on camera settings, and anything else photography related that you would like to cover.
During 2021 I am running a series of workshops in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes - which was recently recognised by Historic England as a Park of Special Historic Interest. Each workshop has a maximum of four participants plus myself as leader.
This enables me to comply with the outdoor 'rule of six' legislation which came into effect on 29th March - as well as ensuring that I can spend as much time as possible with each client.
Workshop Dates and Rates
Current scheduled dates/times are as follows, and are for a maximum of four participants:
Tuesday 29th June 2021 - 10am to 1pm - TWO PLACES LEFT
Saturday 17th July 2021 - 2pm to 5pm - ONE PLACE LEFT
Saturday 14th August - 2pm to 5pm
Cost is £60 per person, payable on booking. I accept bank transfer or Paypal, or if you prefer to pay by card I can send a Paypal invoice.
“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.
More dates will be added as the year progresses. If you are interested in sunrise or sunset workshops, for a small group or as an individual, please get in touch and I will see what can be arranged. Rates may vary for bespoke sessions, depending on numbers.
To book, or for more information, please email email@example.com or call me on 07595 161855. You can also register interest in future dates throughout the year, if the published ones are not suitable.
“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.”
