Alan Ranger Photography Tuition


Book one of our Bluebell woodland photography workshops in Warwickshire. Enjoy exclusive access to private bluebell woodlands and get the best shots.

Bluebell Woodlands Photography Workshops - 26th Apr to 2nd May 2018

Join an award winning professional photographer and qualified tutor, Alan Ranger, for a bluebell woodland photography workshop in private woods, Warwickshire. 

Alan has run workshops in these woodlands for the last four years and has exclusive access for the four days with the permission and support of the owners.  Therefore the exact location has been kept a secret to help prevent other's trespassing and accessing the woods without permission.  The exact location will be provided to anyone who books but for your travel and possible B&B planning purposes you should plan to be near Henley In Arden.

This private location in Warwickshire is regarded as one of the best locations for bluebells

  • On the day you will be shown the best spots for taking those stunning photos
  • You will have exclusive access to these private woodlands to ensure you can compose shots easily
  • Most importantly, you will be advised by a professional, award winning photographer on all aspects

In order to give you a truly personal service, I limit the number of places so I can give you one-to-one advice.

We will meet at a designated point at 5:45 am or 11am and take the short drive and 15 min walk to the woods - location and meeting point details will be emailed prior to the event.

On this workshop Alan will guide you through:

  • focusing in low light
  • tonal range and shadow and highlight recognition
  • composition and designing the shots in a variety of ways
  • long exposure, set-up and calculating the right amount of time
  • photo reviews throughout the workshop and demonstrations
