Spring Photography Workshop: Advanced Course at Sheffield Park and Garden

Welcome in the warmer weather and advance your photography skills as the spring colour returns to the garden.

  • Booking essential

Spend the day perfecting your photography skills at Sheffield Park's advanced spring photography workshop. With access before the garden opens, the workshop begins with a chance to practise your skills in the peace of the garden in the early morning light.

As the day progresses, this course led by professional photographer, Roger Bloxham, will allow you to add to your knowledge base, develop a range of photography skills and try out new techniques with fellow enthusiasts. The time will be divided into sections that deal with one aspect of photography at a time, for example exposure, best focussing options and composition.

The course runs from 8.00am-12:30pm, with two hot drinks and a slice of cake included in the price.

The price also includes garden entry.
