Introduction to Photography

Join us for an introduction to photography


Join us for a day of relaxation and learn how to take better photographs with our tutor, Gary. Our workshop is designed around fun and creativity and all set within a relaxed and calming environment, with 4 acres of beautiful grounds to explore.

We will introduce anyone with an interest in photography to the finer skills of composition, exposure and use of light, as well as providing you with an introduction to the many different genres such as:-

– Portraits
– Landscapes
– Nature
– Wildlife

A bit more detail …

There will also be an opportunity to experience a studio environment for those who would like to experience playing with the control of lighting.

If you enjoy being creative and like new experiences coupled with the opportunity to improve your photography skills, then why not join us here @:Toolerstone for a fun day with likeminded people.

We will help you to improve your skills leading to capturing great images of friends, family, holidays and for social media posts – the opportunities are endless!

I attended this workshop in July and the venue is fabulous, beautiful gardens & staff are so welcoming. Loved the fabrics & relaxing atmosphere. Food was delicious and I would definitely recommend. Jill the tutor was really helpful and full of handy hints.

Response from @:Toolerstone:

It's always lovely to get a fab review! Thank you.
We know you are a member of staff here @:Toolerstone. It makes sense for our staff to experience what we offer. It means that they can give our customers better information as they have done the workshops themselves! What will you try next?!
