Join us at the Main House this spring as we welcome renowned photographer Carole Poirot for her first workshop outside London. The workshop has been created to inspire and teach those looking to take images for their portfolio, brand or Instagram content. Carole will be teaching some tips and tricks of the trade for capturing and editing albums of storytelling photographs. The day will start with an introduction to your camera, running through the settings, then ways to capture images taking into consideration light, angles, natural lighting, image composition and colour theory.

After the session, one of our gardeners will take you on a guided tour of the Walled Gardens, the first chapter of our estate’s food story. Here you’ll find inspiration and be able to apply the knowledge you’ve learnt.

Our team of chefs will cook up a delicious three-course lunch with ‘estate-to-plate’ inspired dishes, before the workshop finishes with an editing element using Lightroom and/or Photoshop. Please remember to bring your camera, and tripod if you have one. The workshop can be completed with a phone camera, too.
