Visiting (or resident in) the Cotswolds and looking for something photographically a little different to the norm? Take a look at our Special Events programme for Autumn 2018 through early 2019 for photographic inspiration in the fabulous Cotswolds!. Simply CONTACT US to find out more or book your place.

1. Christmas at Sudeley Castle. Join us in December for some night photography out at Sudeley castle near Winchcombe to capture stunning images of the illuminated castle. On December 21, weather permitting, we will have an extra special extended event (at no extra cost!) to capture some moonlit Cotswold landscapes under the December Full Moon!

3. Cheltenham By Night. Fancy capturing some unique images of the "centre of the Cotswolds" town of Cheltenham? Then join us for a night photography experience in the centre of Cheltenham. Christmas market and Christmas lights combined with the Georgian architecture of the town make this a great place to capture some very different images to those normally seen.
Event dates: December 8, 20
Event times: 16.00 to 19.00
Cost: £125 per person including return transport from the Gloucester and Cheltenham areas.


4. Full Moon Fever Photo Nights. Ever fancy trying your hand at nightscapes - landscape photography after dark? If so this is your chance to give it a go as we take you on a night photography tour of the Cotswolds around the time of the Full Moon. Learn new photographic skills and capture images of the area that will have your friends and family admiring your creativity! Full Moon Fever nights are weather dependent so we are offering several tour dates around the time of Full Moon in each of the winter months with the hope that at least one of the evenings will be clear enough to allow us to go ahead. Note that you will need a camera that allows the shutter to be held open for long periods of time and a tripod to keep the camera steady.
The dates are as follows:
