Today is the first day of Autumn and represents the start of a new season. The season marks the change of suns position into the northern hemisphere. With this change we will see the daylight time get shorter and the greens of our English Spring and Summer turn to wonderful rich colours of yellow, orange and red - warm days turn quickly into cold nights and misty mornings and the low angle of the sun produces softer light and long shadows.
There aren't many better times of the year than this to get out with your camera to make a photo that encapsulates what YOU feel about this dramatic change in your environment. Whether it's the colour and vibrancy of autumn leaves, close ups of fungi or dying flora this season provides so much opportunity.
I have a complete range of courses, workshops and tuition to suit all tastes and interests for the Autumn Season, from macro to landscapes to fireworks or portraits. So don't be put off by cooler weather - get out enjoy all of the Autumn delights. Remember I am also running a whole series of practical workshops at Batsford throughout October so that you can join me in experiencing the best of opportunities to realise some great shots, you can even enter your Autumn shots in my Autumn Photo Contest and win some free tuition!

You do not need any specialist equipment for these practical workshops, just your camera and any lenses you have. Tripods can be useful but are not essential. We will be covering a broad range of subjects and styles so there is something for everyone to enjoy and learn from. Price includes entry to the arboretum.
Please feel free to email or call me to check availability or ask any questions you may have about the workshop event.
