Gooderstone Water Gardens - Group Photography Session
This event has now SOLD OUT.
Location: Gooderstone Water Gardens, Gooderstone, West Norfolk
Event Type: Group photography session for beginners and hobbyists. A relaxed social event that offers attendees the chance to meet like minded others and practice photography together.

Lead photographer Jon is on hand to guide the session and to offer advice on composition/camera settings.
Date and time: Sunday 24th October 2021 - 11am - our session will last between 2-3 hours
Meeting Place: The Car Park/Entrance Hut - Sat Nav Postcode PE33 9BP
Details: For this group session, we'll be visiting the beautifully peaceful and picturesque Gooderstone Water Gardens in West Norfolk. After meeting and a brief introduction from Jon, you'll be free to wander the grounds and take photographs at your own leisure. Jon will be walking and photographing the grounds himself and will never be far away to answer any questions you may have or to offer advice on composition and camera settings. The gardens include 4 ponds (one aptly named 'Monet Pond', on visiting it's easy to see why), 13 numbered bridges, waterways, a nature trail, bird hide (if you're quiet and lucky, you may see a Kingfisher!) and colourful border plants. There is a tearoom on site and plenty of benches for those who just want to sit, relax and take this beautiful place in. Gooderstone Water Gardens is the perfect place to visit and escape for a couple of hours.
Photo walks are aimed at beginner and hobbyist photographers. Due to the mix of abilities attending, walks aren't designed to be in depth tuition sessions but more of a chance for friendly like minded people to get together to practice photography. Things only get as technical as the questions you ask. All camera types are fine, smartphones included.
