Book Now

We’re finally delivering our most requested session!

We first saw Gill from Mouse About Town’s work when she took some beautiful photos of a Lilliput’s concert one Monday morning. She offers a wide variety of affordable photo shoots, all performed in a natural, relaxed and friendly manner, in all sorts of locations!

For this Self-care Session we are heading out on location ourselves! Meeting at The Boathouse Café in Pittville Park, we are so excited to finally be able to host the photography workshop so many of you have been asking for. The aim is to help you get the most out of your DSLR and enable you to learn how to successfully capture candid shots of your nearest and dearest.

Gill is professionally trained, having studied fine art photography at Central St Martins, London. The Workshop will be broken down into two halves, with a break in the middle. The first hour will focus on the technical know how. The second part will be putting your newly gained knowledge into practice. Gill will be helping us to find the best angles, the best light and the best compositions in the beautiful surroundings of Pittville Park.

This workshop is designed for people with a DSLR camera who want to learn to get more from equipment. It’s perfect for beginners (we’re planning a follow up session too!)

For just £12, join us in Pittville Park for a two-hour photography workshop within the safe confines of the The Boathouse Café and picnic area. Cake included, hot and cold drinks available from The Boathouse Café. If the weather isn’t on our side, we can continue the session inside the beautifully renovated café.

Parking is free around the park for 4 hours.  Additional free parking can be found behind the Pittville Pump Rooms at the top of the eastern side of the park and at Abermarle Gate at the top of the western side of the park (just two minutes’ walk to the Boathouse).

Children of all ages are welcome but feel free to attend without your little ones if you’d like!
