Whether you are new to photography or looking to fine tune your techniques, the rich ancient meadows of Kingcombe Meadows nature reserve will provide a tranquil and inspiring workshop environment in which to further develop your skills.

The Kingcombe Centre in Dorset will be our base for a weekend packed with opportunities to improve your nature photography. Award-winning photographers Nick Garbutt and Alex Hyde will introduce and explain the necessary principles and techniques, so you too can create images with impact and successfully photograph small creatures and plants next time you travel abroad or indeed step into your back garden.

The hedgerows, fields and hay meadows surrounding the Kingcombe Centre have remained much as they were for over 200 years and are almost untouched by artificial fertilisers and pesticides. As a result they are home to a huge array of wildlife, some common and easy to see, others rare elsewhere in the UK. The wildflower meadows are a reminder of how much of the countryside used to look, with the air buzzing with bees, butterflies and other insects.

The aim  is that this weekend be informative and enjoyable and that you will leave with a selection of pleasing images and a new set of skills that you can put into practice on your next trip abroad or while visiting your local nature reserve.
