PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES NORTH YORKSHIRE
Fountains Abbey with Studley Royal Water Garden
National Trust Fountains Abbey with Studley Royal Water Garden is a stunning location for our photographic workshops and photography courses in North Yorkshire. The range and variety of subjects available is second to none. This venue provides us with the stark ruins of the once bustling Fountains Abbey, set in a deep wooded valley with lawns and meadows, typical of this stunning area of Yorkshire.
The lawns lead into both formal and informal water gardens containing statues and follies, all topped off with a deer park containing Red, Fallow and Roe deer which can be an exciting sight during the Autumn rut.
We cater for beginners to advanced photographers. The classroom elements of our workshops are held in the state of the art visitor centre, with projection facilities and breakout rooms where needed. A good restaurant and facilities are at hand within the centre, however, most of the day will be spent in the magnificent parkland and water gardens.
Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Deer Rutting WalkA fabulous opportunity to get out with your camera and put into practice some of the things you have learnt on our workshops. There is no classroom session just pure photography with ideas, help and support from your tutor and the Deer Warden as we make our way through the deer park hoping to catch some of these magnificent creatures in action as they joust for supremacy. The walk is approximately 2 - 3 miles depending where the deer are starting at 10am where we meet up in the Cafe for a drink before we start out until approximately 1pm. Tuition will be given individually as needed during the walk. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to view the deer learn more about the rut and get photographs in this fabulous location. It is recommended that students have at least a 200mm lens.
Entry to the Deer Park is included.
Facilities - available at the visitor centre.
Access - The terrain is mostly fields. It will not be suitable for wheelchair users or those with severely impeded mobility but should be manageable by most folk and requires only a moderate level of fitness. The total duration of the walk will be approximately 1 mile depending where the deer are - more of a gentle wander with lots of picture opportunities. Skill Level 2
