Lapworth Country Walk and Photography
We will spend the day around Lapworth, walking across a variety of areas from farmland and meadows to lakes and canals and anything else that catches our eye to be photographed.
The day will include a break for lunch at the Punch Bowl (not included in the price) and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions, talk photography and exercise your creative juices along the 4.5 mile photo walk
We will meet at Lapworth Church - this is much more an informal walk, talk and photography workshop hence the reduced price - you will still get plenty of tuition throughout as we stop and take shots throughout the day.
There is no specific theme for the photo-walk so we may cover B&W, Abstract, Macro, Landscape and Wildlife.
No specialist equipment required - just bring your camera, wrap up warm and put on your wellies/walking boots and join me for the fresh air outdoors in beautiful Warwickshire countryside

All participants receive 1-2-1 tuition and support on practical workshops so that tutoring can be tailored to the individuals needs and experience.
