For photography courses Staffordshire is an amazing county, and photography at Shugborough has a great photographic history. It was the home and backdrop of the late Patrick Lichfield, one of the most important photographers of his generation. He took iconic photos in these grounds, and an exhibition of his works is currently on display. The more you look at Lichfield’s portraits, the more you realise how good he really was.
This historic estate is still the home of the Earls of Lichfield. Visitors can view the entire estate, including all its major working historic buildings and the original parkland. The costumed staff, animals, fountains, statues and landscaped grounds are great subjects for all kinds of photography and we can use them all in our photography courses Staffordshire. There are great follies and statues in the grounds. The river was diverted to make good scenery, and it still works!
Your course price includes entry to Shugborough House and grounds. There is a great cafe. For more details and how to get there see the Shugborough website. We meet at the visitor’s centre when the estate opens at 10:45am and finish at about 5pm.
Thanks to the historic Shugborough Estate for allowing us to hold photography courses Staffordshire at Shugborough.
