We have a garden photography course coming up on Saturday 24th June, to be held at the lovely Bickham House, just south of Exeter, in Devon. This will be every photographer’s chance to learn how to photograph both garden landscapes and close-ups/details of many of a typical garden’s loveliest flowers.
Bickham is an ideal place to learn this kind of photography as it provides a remarkably diverse set of photo locations and compositions in a surprisingly small environment, meaning that students will never have to walk far to find some great subjects. And of course that also means that I’ll always be close at hand to give instruction and tips!

We’ll look forward to hearing from you and to seeing you on 24th June!
My two May photography courses both went off well, Exmoor in Spring and Dartmoor in Spring, as the names suggest concentrating on the landscapes of southwest England’s two national parks.
Both courses were fully booked, so I was kept busy throughout giving instruction, help and tips to everyone as they worked at shooting the views that we visited. The weather, it has to be said, was not always completely cooperative. Exmoor in Spring was treated to hazy grey skies, which were not really conducive to the ‘open-sky’ views, but was just perfect for the period we spent shooting inside the woodlands at Watersmeet.
For Dartmoor in Spring, we started the day with a few heavy showers, which caused us to start with an indoor theory session at a nearby café, before we were able to venture out into the landscape. Even then we still got wet with a few showers, but not enough to dampen anyone’s spirits. For the final session, out on the open moors around Bench Tor we did get treated to some bursts of evening sunlight, which were a good finale to the day.
A couple of my photos are shown here, but you can see more on the website by clicking below.
I have a couple more photography courses coming up in June, on the 17th and 24th. Click on the link below to find out more about them and to sign up.
I’ll hope to hear from you soon!
