This week, I launched my new Photography Workshops, based in the beautiful Grade II Listed Campbell Park here in Milton Keynes. You can find all the info here, but in summary they are for up to four people per session, and I currently have three dates available in April - though I will of course be be adding more as the year progresses.
The exciting news though is that, having formally launched these earlier in the week, they are now almost fully booked - proving that there is definitely a market for this type of workshop among the photographic community of Milton Keynes, and hopefully beyond! If you're interested in booking for April, please do let me know - as I only have three places left across the published dates, as I write this.
To give you some more background, it's no secret that I'm a huge advocate of Milton Keynes, and have always done everything possible to promote it, and to dispel the myths that it's a concrete jungle and nothing more than 'concrete cows and roundabouts'. Which is why I created the Unexpected:MK photography book for MK's 50th birthday in 2017. So these workshops are really now an extension of that.
For the moment, I'm aiming the workshops at people who already live in MK, as I've discovered there are many that really don't know Campbell Park at all. But in the future I very much hope that we will be able to attract a wider audience to Milton Keynes. In reality at the moment, if you want to go on a photography workshop, there are actually relatively few options in this part of the country - and you may find yourself travelling to Cornwall, the Lake District or even Scotland, just to find this type of meet-up.
To provide a little more information about the location, Campbell Park is one of the largest parks to be laid out in England in the 20th and 21st Century, with a design that takes on elements from the 18th and 19th Century and fuses them into a contemporary design that is fitting for a pioneering new city. More information on The Parks Trust website here.
The park was awarded Grade II status by Historic England in August 2020, due to its historic interest and innovative architectural design. All of which makes it the perfect location for my Photography Workshops - with numerous different areas and viewpoints to shoot!
