The masterclass at ‘the Botanist’ was a superb day for many reasons. The company of like minded photographers was excellent- we all gelled really well and there was clear evidence of folk being very comfortable giving and accepting hints, tips and ideas from each other as well as a willingness to share each other’s settings. The fact that we exchanged such information meant I was getting the benefit of not just your expert teaching but also the experience of folk who took photographs of a different style to my own default position. You gave, as always great 121 help and support as well as challenge that moved my practice on. The Top tips re: flat lays and tripods was very welcome. The food was fabulous though I do confess I was more interested in eating it than photographing it. Venue – well what can I say? Styling heaven, a new setting everywhere I looked, different styles of decor and objects that knit together in a superbly cohesive way. Great to have so many different natural lighting levels in 1 place. I just didn’t know what to look at or photograph first. You brought a really extensive selection of props to supplement what was already available. I had a fantastic day and recommend the masterclass to anyone with a desire to photograph still life settings. Fabulous.

The Botanist at Alderley Edge is the perfect venue for the masterclasses, with its decor of stained and distressed wood, crumbling plaster and botany inspired props. We have the entire first floor at our disposal, with three distinct areas and plenty of natural light.
