About the course

Be part of a small group on this course devoted to outdoor practical photography amid the spring delights of Kew Gardens, with instruction and guidance from one of the world’s most successful flower and garden photographers.

After an introductory lecture, you’ll spend the day in the Gardens (and possibly in one of the glasshouses) which presents a wide variety of photographic challenges. The tutor will be drawing your attention to the trees, plants and views making up the spring picture at Kew, and sharing hints and tips for the best ways of capturing them.

Not suitable for beginners. Ideal for improvers who are keen to ask questions.

Light lunch included.
