New to photography? This photography class is ideal for beginners as your friendly teacher will also be there to guide you on the technical side of photography as well as exploring composition and the thought process behind creating photos, not just taking them.

Typical itinerary (subject to change):
  • To begin the day, you will meet your teacher and your group at Richmond Park Gates. Your teacher will then offer a brief overview of the session, before setting off to explore Richmond Park in search of wildlife.

  • If required, your teacher will initially discuss camera settings, ensuring you are completely confident with your camera and set up correctly so that you're ready and waiting to snap that perfect wildlife shot. You'll be encouraged to keep your eyes peeled for adorable squirrels, bright green Ring-necked Parakeets, swans and of course, deer. This workshop is always timed with sunrise or sunset, giving the best chance of beautiful golden hour sunlight!

Please note:
You will be given a specific meet-up point upon booking.
