Workshops at Horwood House Hotel and Steppingley Village Pavilion

Close to Milton Keynes, the elegant Horwood House Hotel is an ideal location for our introductory courses and portraiture, while the Steppingley Village Pavilion is a perfect venue for specialised courses such as Close-up & Macro Photography.

Horwood House Hotel near Milton Keynes

The charming Horwood House Hotel is set in 38 acres of landscaped gardens in the heart of beautiful Buckinghamshire just eleven miles from Milton Keynes, Horwood House elegantly combines vintage appeal with modern facilities in a countryside setting.

The grounds are a beautiful backdrop for photography with a long drive to the dramatic site of the ivy-covered country house. There is a pagoda, situated next to the lily pond, fantastic for our Portraiture Courses and we regularly run our popular Explore Your Camera 1 - Get Off Auto and Explore Your Camera 2 - Developing Skills here.

Close-up & Macro

Steppingley Village Pavilion near Woburn

Steppingley is a picturesque Bedfordshire village on the Greensand ridge, close to Ampthill, Flitwick and Woburn. The newly completed Village Pavilion on the village green is a perfect location for many courses including our Wildlife Close-up & Macro Workshop with the wonderful animals and birds from local wildlife educational company Teaching Talons. Although no particular species can be guaranteed on a specific workshop, we may photograph Bearded Dragon, Ornate Horned Frog, African Pygmy Hedgehog, Jungle Nymph, Chilean Rose Tarantula, Brazilian Rainbow Boa, Spiny Stick Insect and, if we have time, the Southern White-faced Owl and African Barn Owl.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide you with the skills to capture close up of images of the natural world, whether in a controlled setting or in the wild, and the techniques covered will be equally applicable to photographing products for your website or ebay..

The workshop will start with a presentation on the challenges, techniques and equipment associated with close-up and macro photography and be followed with plenty of opportunities to practice with a variety of animals and studio sets. The course is limited to just six students and two studio sets will be provided with different species to photograph and using different approaches to lighting. Whilst you are welcome to bring macro lenses and dedicated flashguns if you have them, a variety of other options will be discussed and demonstrated allowing you to capture great images with your existing equipment.
