Poppy Fields Photography Workshops Update
Mother nature is not always my best friend when it comes to scheduling workshops that involve seasonal flowers. Poppy fields are definitely the hardest to predict each year as they can be a whole month out either way. This year they have come earlier than ever before and therefore I have had to do an emergency scouting mission this morning to see how things are progressing.
The bad news is that they are already starting to flower, so at least 2 weeks early, the good news is that there are plenty more buds unopened and the weather forecast is not dry and hot so they should continue to flower for another week comfortably.
Therefore, to ensure we get to shoot them at their best I am bringing all the workshops dates forward.
I scouted 8 different locations this morning, previously known fields, only 4 of them had poppies in this year.
Below are a few iPhone snaps I took from those three locations this morning in Worcestershire (Exact locations will be provided upon booking)
I have also checked out the weather forecasts for cloud density, rain and sunshine and that summary is attached so you can consider the options – naturally it’s a forecast only and you won’t need me to tell you that forecasts are often wrong.

I have reviewed the forecast and based on having medium to low cloud density, avoiding rain above 1mm the dates/times that work best are as follows:
• Thu 6th Jun 5 am to 7:30 am
• Sat 8th Jun 5 am to 7:30 am
• Sat 8th Jun 7:15 pm to 9:45 pm
• Sun 9th Jun 7:15 pm to 9:45 pm
• Mon 10th Jun 7:15 pm to 9:45 pm
Don't delay your decision to participate in one of natures highlights of the year, the workshops are limited to a max of 6 people and 1-2-1 tuition is provided throughout so whatever level you are you are able to join in, experience and learn in this majestic setting. Location details are only emailed out to those who sign up (this is to protect the identity of the location) For planning purposes I can tell you it is Worcestershire, near to Kidderminster
