Bedgebury Pinetum is a magical world of trees, lakes and woodland located HERE between Lamberhurst and Goudhurst on the Kent and Sussex border. I have been shooting here for many years and never cease to be amazed at all the photographic opportunities this glorious location has to offer. I have captured every season in the Pinetum and I always look forward to seeing the forest transform and blossom throughout the year.
With the support of Forestry England and the Friends of Bedgebury Pinetum, I host a number of workshops where we offer fellow photographers an opportunity to see the wonderful Pinetum at first light, followed by a breakfast and finally a post production editing session in the Education Room. If you'd like to know more, or book yourself on to the next workshop, please visit the Friends of Bedgebury website HERE. If you would like to book me for a private one-to-one or group workshop then please EMAIL me or use my CONTACT form. I look forward to seeing you in the future.
