Burton and South Derbyshire College is holding a series of free Photo Canopy workshops between April and June, designed to develop people’s photography and creative skills, and explore in depth issues.

The Photo Canopy project aims to provide residents and supporters of the National Forest with stimulating and vibrant learning and development experiences. The project uses photography to link artists, students, geographical location and the rich landscape of the National Forest.

Photography workshops include expert advice on exposure, image sharpness and composition with professional photographers, including travel photographer, Aaron Yeandle and documentary and editorial photographer, David Severn. There are also workshops with guest lecturers available exploring different art forms, such as watercolour, natural dye textiles and drawing.

Chris Beech, Director of Creative and Digital Industries at Burton and South Derbyshire College said: “Our Photo Canopy workshops are a great opportunity for people interested in photography to gain new skills and explore their interest further. Whether you are a beginner or enthusiast, shoot digital or film, you will benefit from our professional, experienced tutors being on hand at all times to offer friendly, practical and personal advice.”
