Walking Photography at RHS Harlow Carr in 2024

Walking Photography at RHS Harlow Carr in 2024

Once again, I am delighted to be working with the team at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate for a fourth year of delivering workshops in their beautiful grounds. Following on from January’s Get a Grip Camera Course, I will be at RHS Harlow Carr for another three events throughout 2024 and I wanted to let you know what to expect. 

Each will help you master different skills and techniques with your camera, whether you are looking to improve the way you photograph your local wildlife, you want to learn the tricks of the trade for taking photos up close or you are interested in how to capture the changing seasons in your area. 

The workshops are open to all, from beginners to those with more experience and they are accessible, with small class sizes so I can work with you to develop your own individual style, offering tailored advice. 

Photography Workshops at RHS Harlow Carr

Here are the workshops I will be running:

Composition Photography Masterclass – Friday 3rd May 2024

How much time do you spend considering composition? In the hustle and bustle of the everyday it can be hard to find the time to stop and properly consider the impact of how we frame the image we want to capture. 


This workshop provides the opportunity to take that time and explore the power of considered composition. You will be amazed how much of a difference it will make! 

This is a practical workshop for people of all abilities, experience levels and any type of camera. And I promise to reveal the secrets to creating better compositions! 

Feel free to join us with any type of camera, including camera phones.

How to Take Stunning Close-Up and Macro Photographs – Saturday 13th July 2024

When you delve into the world of macro and close-up photography, your world will never be the same again! 

Exploring the miniature, I am hosting a practical and inspiring introduction to macro and close-up photography. Whether you’re an absolute beginner with a camera or a seasoned pro with a bag full of gear, you’ll enjoy an engaging workshop packed with tips and advice from my nearly 20 years of professional experience.  

As well as looking into the key approaches and techniques for stunning close-up photography there’ll be plenty of opportunity for more specific, tailored tuition and tips as the workshop progresses. 

You will need a camera you can take off the automatic setting. If you have them, macro lenses, close-up filters, extension tubes and mobile macro lenses may help you get more from the workshop, but they aren’t essential.
