Clive Nichols Photography Workshops

Wednesday 7th June and Wednesday 25th October 2023

We are delighted to welcome Clive Nichols back to Bowood House & Gardens for two photography courses, on Spring and the other Autumn colour.

Take this opportunity to improve your outdoor practical photography amid Bowood’s magnificent gardens, with instruction and guidance from one of Britain’s top garden photographers, Clive Nichols with over 30 years’ experience.

Clive has photographed many of the world’s best gardens, including HRH The Prince of Wales’s own private garden in Scotland, Lord Rothschild’s private garden in Corfu and Lord Heseltine’s private garden in Oxfordshire. His passion for the subject comes across in every image that he makes.  His work has appeared in hundreds of books as well as in countless magazines, calendars and brochures. Clive regularly gives master classes in flower and garden photography for The Royal Horticultural Society.

After an introductory lecture in our Gardeners Bothy, you will spend time with Clive in the Bowood gardens, where he will share his best hints and tips to capture the natural environment.

Clive will bring along copies of his latest book ‘Brilliant English Gardens’ which you can purchase and get signed. It’s a stunning large scale hard back book with double page spreads of some of the UK best gardens.
