Photography Workshops at Burghley House

Burghley House, just off the A1 near Stamford on the Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire border, provides us with a huge variety of subjects to photograph on our courses and workshops, from the rolling parkland and lake to architecture, water features and sculptures.
Burghley is not just all about rolling parkland, it is also an ideal venue for indoor workshops such as Portrait Photography.


Studio lighting workshops are held at Burghley throughout the year.
See the Home Studio page or more information: Portrait Photography using a Home Studio.


We are now able to offer an Introduction to Photographing Birds of Prey workshop in the parkland at Burghley, providing us with some fantastic backgrounds for the birds.


We have always offered One to One days, whereby students can book to spend a whole day with a photographer to develop their photo skills. The usual rates are £375.00 at weekends, or £250.00 weekdays (plus travel at £0.40p per mile) but we are currently offering a specially reduced fee of £200.00 + travel for those who have booked workshops with us in 2010 (and this covers up to two people). Why not inquire today, or mail Rod for more details.

Please note!!

The £200.00 One to One days are only available from the tutor who ran the original workshop.

Hi Rod

Thanks for the training session you ran Saturday. I found that your instruction was clear and understandable. In addition I feel that your personality added to this without doubt. I will most defiantly be looking to join another course most properly the wedding photography. I have added a recent photo I took of my daughter Daisy. I love the colours this picture brings.

Thanks Once again

Dear Rod,

I had a very enjoyable and enlightening 2 days with you and Alli.

I learnt so much my poor brain is still trying to digest it all. Can I just say that the 2 day course was very relaxed as well as informative and both you and Alli adjusted the content to suit even my very amateurish needs, I thank you both for that.

I have attached a few of my better shots to add to the competition, I would like very much to try shooting the Birds of Prey sometime in 2014.

I wish you both continued success with your own careers.

Best Wishes

Hi Rod,
We just wanted to drop you a mail to say thank you for a great home studio course on Saturday at Burghley. We both came away having learnt exactly what we wanted to learn along with a great hands on workshop. The day was laid back, fun, informative and to be honest I cant fault it in any way. We haven't yet got in amongst the world of ebay and its lighting and gadgets but I have no doubt we will be investing (although it would mean our 4 year old having to move bedrooms!)
Thank you again from the dynamic duo! we look forward to seeing you soon on another one of your courses.
Best wishes

Hello Rod

Yes I had a great time thank you, I have definately learnt some new skills and will practice in my garage with my family. I would like to set up a studio in my garage but I can see i'm not quite ready yet but as I said I shall keep trying.

The session was just about right for me, a mixture of critic and manual practice. Perhaps a few more different textured or coloured backgrounds to stand against would have helped. Also to see the effect of different filters, ie soft filters on peoples faces.

I haven't done a lot of portrait work so I find it's my worst area. I found on Saturday that some people are more photogenic than others and you dont need to do a lot to make them look good. It's the other people that are difficult and takes more time and effort.

Thanks once again.
