National Trust Stackpole NNR Photography Workshop

The National Trust's Stackpole National Nature Reserve is the venue for a day in the company of Welsh professional photographer and lecturer, Andy Davies, who will provide hands-on expert tuition to small groups who are introduced to the essentials of creative photography. This is an exceptionally diverse wildlife location offering one of the best chances to photograph a resident family of otters in the UK.

The Bosherston ponds are at their best when the lilies are in flower at the end of May and the woodlands are carpeted in bluebells and wild garlic. Other subjects of interest are herons, mute swans, damselflies, dragonflies and butterflies. Awe inspiring landscapes abound with Barafundle and Broad Haven being two of the most picturesque beaches in Wales. The autumn woodland colours are spectacular and make for superb landscape compositions when reflected in the ponds.

Whether a complete beginner, enthusiast, aspiring professional or seasoned photographer, Andy provides comprehensive tuition to suit all levels in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. There is plenty of time throughout the workshop for one-to-one tuition when topics of your interest can be explored.

National TrustWe meet at 9.15am for an introductory talk at the National Trust's Stackpole Outdoor Learning Centre and the day is then spent visiting various locations in the Reserve. Instruction is informal and conducted as we work our way around the ponds, woodland and beaches. The course finishes at 3.15pm.

Workshop dates for 2014/15
Workshops can be run at any time of year with a flexible booking system to suit the weather and participant's availability.

Cost
Workshop £95 per person with groups rates available for bookings of 4 or more.

Location
The location of the Stackpole Outdoor Learning Centre (SA71 5DQ) can be found on Google Maps or the Ordnance Survey's Get-a-map but a Satnav or AA's Route Planner will direct you down a road that does not exist! From Pembroke, take the B4319 and turn left, still on the B4319 following the signs for Bosherston. Turn left off this road at the sign to Bosherston but take the left almost back on yourself where there is a sign for Mencap Stackpole Gardens and a brown sign for Stackpole Centre. Take this and turn right at the next T junction and to the car park in front of reception.
