Following on from the success of last year’s Photography workshop with award winning garden photographer Joe Wainwright, I’m delighted to announce we will be repeating this one day workshop at the beautiful Abbeywood Gardens in Delamere, Cheshire in May. Joe has a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to inspire designers to make the most of their garden photography.
The workshop will use a combination of a presentation, practical work and personal feedback to give designers an understanding of:
• How to achieve good composition using a variety of techniques
• How to take advantage of different lighting conditions
• How to spot the best photographic possibilities in your gardens
• How to use more advanced settings (if available on your camera), to achieve greater impact in their photos
Course tutor profile: Joe is based near Chester and is an award-winning professional garden photographer who works with garden designers, garden owners and organisations including the National Trust and RHS. He has been featured in publications such as: Garden Design Journal, The English Garden, Gardens Illustrated and The Garden and in books including those by Tom Stuart-Smith, Penelope Hobhouse and Bodnant Garden.
He is a full member of the Garden Media Guild and Professional Garden Photographers' Association, and has won awards in the 2022, 2021, 2020, 2018, 2016 and 2015 International Garden Photographer of the Year competitions.
