Autumnal New Forest

The New Forest is one of the Uk’s smallest national parks, with an area of only 566 km2. However, within its boundaries, it contains a wonderfully varied landscape: coniferous woodland, broadleaved woodland, open heathland, ponds, streams and even a stretch of coastline. There are also the famous New Forest ponies, which roam freely around the forest and will often pose obligingly for a photo!
The New Forest is famous for its autumn colours; in a good year, the trees positively glow with golds, yellows and reds, complemented by the orange bracken on the forest floor below. In our experience, the colour usually peaks in the first week of November, which is when we have planned to run our workshops.
We will concentrate our attention around Bolderwood and Rhinefield, home to some of the forest’s oldest and most spectacular trees but will also take the opportunity to add a little variety by shooting some of the nearby heathland. Depending on the timing and conditions, we may be able to shoot sunset reflected in one of the picturesque ponds.
Many people find woodland photography challenging as learning to see compositions in such a chaotic environment is not always easy; therefore, we will start the day with an in-depth briefing, where we will discuss relevant techniques, provide a guide to the locations we intend to visit and prepare you throughly for the day ahead. You will also receive a copy of Mark and Ross's latest book - 52 Assignments - Landscape Photography - due to be published in the early autumn.
Your tutors for this workshop Jeremy Walker and Mark Bauer, two of the UK’s leading landscape photographers. The group size is a maximum of 10 participants, so there will be plenty of opportunity for individual tuition and guidance.
