AONB photography workshops back by popular demand


Everyone is welcome to learn photography skills at a series of free fixed-point photography workshops.

The Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team is inviting photography and nature enthusiasts to a series of photography workshops.

The workshops will not only give participants expert tuition in how to photograph various landscapes from a fixed point, they will also be a chance for people to have their say on how the AONB is run.

This is the third year the AONB is holding the photography workshops, which have proved really popular.

The sessions are free, include a light lunch, and are open to everyone, not just AONB volunteers.

Emma Beaman, of Cannock Chase AONB, said: “the previous photography workshops were really popular and we have got some brilliant images from across the AONB. The photos are really important as they help us to monitor these precious landscapes over time, so we’re keen to get even more people involved in the project.

“Everyone is welcome to learn the skills of how to take a beautiful fixed-point photograph at these free workshops. All you need is a digital camera and a love of the great outdoors.”

The first-fixed point photography workshop is on 19 November 2015 from 10am to 1pm at Beaudesert Park Farm.

The sessions, led by professional photographer Steve Welch of Ecoimages, will focus on how to capture the different themes through the use of photography.

The next workshop will run on 17 December from 10am to 1pm at the Museum of Cannock Chase.

The remaining sessions will be held on 28 January at Birches Valley and 10 March at the John O Leary classroom, Marquis Drive 2016.

Places are limited and need to be booked. To reserve your place on the photography workshop or to find out more, please call Cannock Chase AONB on 01785 619186 or email emma.beaman@staffordshire.gov.uk.

The course is free however the AONB does ask for a voluntary donation.

    I’ve always been thinking about photography. It’s my passion. While working on novels and other writings for http://www.freelancehouse.co.uk, I do pictures myself. I try to be creative and unique.
