A new adventure for 2021: a day of photography within the private grounds of Haddon’s medieval parkland. Facilitated by experienced photographers Guy Badham and Naomi Jones, the day gives you the opportunity to explore areas not normally open to the public. The medieval parkland of Haddon Hall harbours a rich variety of wildlife, plants and trees as well as fascinating old buildings. Guy and Naomi will be on hand to guide you and give you advice on how to get the best from your camera equipment.
A maximum tutor:student ratio of 1:5 ensure that you will receive personalised support with your camera.
Lunchtime will be spent at the wonderful Haddon Restaurant where participants can take a well-earned rest and discuss the morning session over a bowl of soup and a sandwich or a heartier meal if preferred.
There is a choice of dates, each of which will explore a different route:
14th July 2021 – Wye River Meadows
