I will be teaching an introductory Garden Photography Course designed for the beginner to intermediate photographer. This Two day Course will be on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 June. Based at the beautiful gardens of Parham House in West Sussex, students will learn the technical tools to be able to create and express their own garden photographs at a professional standard. Set in the grounds of a four acre Walled Garden, the greenhouse, vegetable gardens, orchard and herbaceous borders at Parham provide a beautiful canvas for artistic inspiration. This course will involve both classroom and work in the field. Students will be encouraged to develop their own particular ways of interpreting the design of a garden through their own individual style.
Both Gardeners and Photographers are welcome!

The Spring flowers have awoken and are flexing their beauty in Parham’s Walled Garden. My dawn forays to beat the sun are now earlier and earlier daily. I find solace in the shade with the tulips. They look their best out of the glare. Cool is the colour of my favourites.
It’s hard to know the moment I fell in love with the Garden at Parham House. Was it the first time years ago that I spied the gargantuan proportions of the show-off Cardoons? They seemed beamed down from another world. Was it the instant when dawn light crept over the high East Wall of the aptly named Walled Garden and my heart raced at the glorious shapes and colours coming to life?
It’s hard to know which season is best there. My heart is fickle. I obsessively photograph the tulips in spring. But the poppies then take my fancy. Who wouldn’t love this blowsy bubble-gum confection?
Autumn has arrived. The colours are muted as the Garden readies for winter. Just a few flagrant flaming asters and dahlias sing out for attention.
