About this event
An opportunity for children aged 10-16 years to join us at West Stow Country Park and develop their photography skills and explore the beautiful landscape in this seasonal photography workshop with local photographer; Phil Morley.
The diversity of the location gives us a great variety of photo opportunities. From the heath and woodland, river and lake there are a wealth of creative landscape and close-up shots that we will look at.
This workshop is ideal for beginners and photographers looking to learn more about their camera. Throughout the workshop we will look at variety of camera techniques and composition tips to help you improve your photography. You will need to bring a camera, it doesn’t matter how good or how basic – we’ll show it’s you that can take great pictures, not the camera.
