Garden Photography

Early Morning, Autumn Garden Photography – This Thursday

It is generally acknowledged that the best time for garden photography is at dawn, especially with the rising sun, mists or frosts. Unfortunately we rarely get the opportunity to do this in large private gardens.


Although we cannot guarantee sun, mists or frost, Linda and I have permission to lead a small group into a well stocked, large, walled flower-garden, a vegetable garden, an orchard and an attractive, private, formal garden for a dawn session.

The event will begin at 6.30am (possibly 6.15am if it is a sunny morning) on Thursday 19th September. It is free-of-charge but will be on a shoot-for-photos (SFP) agreement. Pictures must be submitted to us, for the owners use, soon after the event. No excuses, no pictures, no more invites. Single blooms, groups of blooms, environmental pictures etc are all acceptable. Some creative and atmospheric images are also welcome. We are looking for a good spread of image subjects.

The location is very close to Bedford. I would expect we will finish after 90 minutes but it may be possible to continue for longer. Weather dependent but the forecast is good.

These flowers are an active business. We are very lucky to have this wonderful contact. We know you are always considerate but we still emphasise that we must take great care, always show respect and not damage anything. Tripods can be used only when carefully positioned and we must not push between the rows of flowers. We want to be invited back.

Pictures will also be acceptable for the Summer Events competition

The group size will be limited to the first few applications received. Open to BCC members only.

To join the event you must email us on ASAP. We will then send you more details
