Bluebell photography workshop at Ashridge

Close up of a bluebell at Ashridge, Herts

Sorry - this event has been cancelled. Join local photographer Lyndsey Abercromby for a one day bluebell photography workshop on Fri 26 April, 10am-4pm. This workshop coincides with a visual feast on the estate as the woodland floor covered with beautiful bluebells that you'll be able to capture.

This full day workshop is aimed at beginners who wish to learn the basics of photography,
through to intermediate photographers looking to refresh and improve their skill.


The goal is to learn new techniques and locations, and leave feeling inspired and motivated to capture stunning photographs. Small group numbers mean there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and put your new knowledge into practice.
