Photography course at Dunham Massey

Photography courses at Dunham Massey gives us a brilliant new venue for our photography courses in the North West. It has a fantastic range of photography subjects, with views of in formal gardens, fantastic reflections, and even friendly animals. The deer coming down at the end of the day was a particular highlight – more pictures next time!

We had a lovely mixed group of five, with cameras varying from bridge cameras to semi-professional Canon 60D. The students got on well, and were imaginative in taking shots that described the property and grounds, but in an unusual way. We’re very much looking forward to teaching more photography courses at Dunham Massey during 2013.

It is a genuine privilege to be able to teach photography courses at Dunham Massey. Every time we visit the venue we find more interesting things to photograph. There are deer and water birds, a great range of trees, and interesting vernacular and polite architecture. All in all, lots of stuff!

It’s also very useful to be close to greater Manchester, and this is one of that reasons the Dunham Massey is such a popular National Trust venue. The cafe is particularly good, and it’s very easy to see why so many Mancunian families choose it as a day out destination.

One of the outstanding features is the friendliness of the deer that come down very close to the house at the end of the day. This gives a real opportunity for us to get wildlife photographs with beautiful National Trust backgrounds.
