Staverton Thicks Half Day Woodland Workshop – 30th October 2021
Discover the magical fairytale woodland of Staverton Thicks. It’s ancient woodland is a landscape of fairytale qualities where vast oaks stand side by side with some of the tallest holly trees in Britain. Reminiscent of childhood stories, the ‘Thicks’ is a chaotic tangle of twisted branches where light is sparse and evergreen curtains of holly hang in the air. Dead and decaying boughs and trunks litter the floor and even on the brightest of days the air is cool and the forest dark. This is one of my favourite areas of woodland in Suffolk but it is also a very chaotic place that can be difficult to photograph. However when you get your eye in it is fantastically rewarding and an enchanting place to explore.
This Workshop will include a series of exercises to help you master the different aspects of composition and help you create beautiful and compelling woodland images in one of the most enchanting areas of woodland in Suffolk.
This is a 3 hour workshop which includes comprehensive course notes. It is suitable for all levels and abilities and all camera types. Participants are invited to submit their collection of images for comments and feedback after the workshop. As we will be working in a forest environment it is recommended that you bring a tripod to get the most from this workshop.
Photographic workshops make ideal gifts. If you would like to purchase a workshop as a gift please contact me and I will send you a free gift card with your order.
All my workshops explore areas that are covered in my book Photographing the Suffolk Coast
