Autumn has got to be the most exciting time of year for taking photographs outdoors due to its rich and diverse colour - and woodland is where colour is at its most resplendent. Covering 100 acres, Thorp Perrow Arboretum in Bedale, North Yorkshire boasts one of the largest collections of shrubs and trees in the North of England - and November is when it comes alive! Take a look -

Join Mark Banks for a day of sheer indulgence and learn how to take the most exquisite autumnal images. Mark will be your tutor for the full day offering sound photographic advice, tips and tricks on taking beautiful autumn woodland images. He will also help you with composition and techniques such as Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), focus staking and macro.
