Join an award-winning professional photographer and qualified tutor, Alan Ranger, for a poppy field photography workshop near Kidderminster, Worcestershire.

Poppy fields are one of those seasonal highlights for outdoor photographers who appreciate nature and the spectacle of a field of colour.

Choice of workshops: 

  • Sunrise - 5 am to 7:30 am

  • Sunset - 7:15 pm to 9:45 pm

Alan has run poppy field workshops for the last seven years so can guide you in every aspect of capturing and making compelling images on a vista or macro level.

  • On the day you will be shown the best spots for taking those stunning photos

  • You will have 1-2-1 tuition throughout according to your level and experience to go home with compelling shots

  • Most importantly, you will be advised by a professional, award winning photographer on all aspects of photography

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

Exact location and meeting point details will be provided 7 days prior to the event date. For planning purposes it will be near Kidderminster, Worcestershire.
