Autumn Landscape Photography

The Autumn Landscape Photography Workshops have been held at Batsford Arboretum (Moreton in Marsh) for the last five years and grow more and more popular every year with over 40 people attending over a seven to ten day period at the end of October.

The half and one-day workshops are not to be missed. Whether your existing knowledge is a complete novice or you are more experienced, you will learn from Alan’s knowledge of the arboretum’s best spots during autumn and discover new ways to get more creative with digital photography.

All events are run personally by Alan Ranger, professional photographer and qualified photography tutor. Alan has partnered with Batsford Arboretum for the last five years to exclusively provide photography training at the centre. All classes, courses and workshops are well planned, structured offer any level of photographer the opportunity to learn something about their camera, composition and executing shots with more confidence and success.

Full details and booking can be found on the website Batsford page. You will be sent a booking confirmation on receipt of payment and joining instructions with details of what to bring and where to meet at the visitor's centre seven days prior to the event.

I hope to meet many of you again in 2019 and look forward to another great photographic year at Batsford.
