Join professional photographer Victoria Hillman on one of her favourite areas, for a creative & fun photography workshop!


If you enjoy finding and photographing fungi and want to improve or expand your photography skills and creativity, this workshop is for you!

We will be exploring woodland on the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The ground reveals the rise and fall of lead mining over 2,000 years. The Mendip Hills had rich veins of lead running just beneath the surface in seams. These seams or ‘rakes’ were dug and then reworked over generations as machinery and techniques improved. This activity has led to the industrial wasteland or gruffy ground of lumps, bumps and rock outcrops that are visible today.

This woodland is also known for its abundance and variety of fungi species and we will spend the day slowly wandering the paths looking for different species and anything else we can find as well including the mosses and lichens that can be found.

These workshop days will not be species specific. Instead we will spend the day out in the field looking for different fungi to photograph.

The workshop is designed to be of benefit for people at any level with their photography. However, a good working knowledge of your camera equipment is important, allowing us to concentrate on finding and photographing subject,  working on various skills and trying some different ideas and techniques.
