See the garden in a different light…

Love gardens? Love photography? Here at Garden Photography School you’ll learn how to capture the magic of the garden with your camera and create stunning, artistic photographs you’ll want to share with friends and family.

Free on-line tutorials, newsletters and interviews with inspirational photographers will not only help you to improve your camera skills but will also encourage you to think differently about your photography; there are so many creative possibilities just waiting to be explored – whatever your level of experience or the kind of camera you use.

Above all, garden photography is fun and relaxing; whether you’re drawn to colourful flowers, tiny natural details or garden design and heritage, slowing down to photograph the world of the garden is the perfect way to re-connect with your inner creativity and the simple things in life. It’s great for your ‘Mojo’!

So join me,  Michael Turner ‘Photogardener’, as we pick up our cameras, open the garden gate and step inside…
