Forest Photography Workshop: Inspiring Photography Workshops in the Savernake Forest

Savernake Forest, Wiltshire, United Kingdom
Savernake Forest, Wiltshire, United Kingdom You can book your workshop at the bottom of this page. Duration is four hours. Please call me to arrange a time.

Join me for an inspiring journey into the Savernake Forest and discover the joys of working in this magical environment.

The forest is a beautiful environment but also a visual challenge, which makes it the perfect place to learn how to accelerate your photography skills and realise your creative potential.

 My workshops are open to everyone, no matter what age or level of experience. The emphasis is firmly on amplifying your existing skills and developing an intuitive method of working that will allow you to create images that have real impact.

 Photography, like painting or writing, is a vehicle by which we can express our unique vision of the world: and it is not all about F stops and exposures. As you progress, you will find that the technical aspects of photography become second nature and that the real joy is in your newfound ability to create truly personal images that have powerful emotional impact.

 I have been a professional photographer for over forty years. I have learnt an awful lot in that time. Together we can make sense of those ever more complicated camera menus, de-mystify many of the technical aspects that hold people back and help you to find that all important personal 'voice' which is the essence of self-expression. 

 My photography workshops are typically half a day in duration and can be at any time of the day that you wish. 1-2-1sessions are very popular, but some people prefer to attend with a friend or two friends and there is a discount for these sessions. I cap the attendee's number at three per workshop so that everybody can benefit from being in a small group. 

 All you need to bring is your preferred camera equipment, which ideally would include a tripod. And of course, plenty of batteries and CF/SD cards. I would also recommend suitable clothing for a woodland environment: stout footwear is essential.

 You can book your workshop below, but please do contact me if you would like more information. I endeavour to make each workshop as tailored to your requirements as possible. Once you have booked, I will send you full details and arrangements.

*I would normally include time to review, process and print shots from our time together, but in these difficult times this is no longer possible. However, I am offering to process and print a favourite shot from the workshop. Prints will be on A2 Platinum Etching Fine Art Paper and delivered to your via DPD courier.

 N.B. Currently, all arrangements will be made so that social distancing measures can be adhered to.

 A few testimonials from my recent 1-2-1 workshops.

 "Hi Nigel, 

 Many thanks for the inspirational photo session the other day - lots to think about and even more to learn! 

 The session was pitched exactly right for me and I think that I am beginning to see how a bit of thought and imagination can turn a snap into a photograph. I found your approach for seeing the potential for a great photograph, in almost any location, very interesting. I will remember this and try to avoid the temptation of chasing a 'better' image that is just around the corner!

 Thanks for everything Nigel.
