In association with another photographer (who will
be doing family portraits throughout the day) I've
booked Lordington Lavender for the whole day.
The fields get more popular each year, but with
that popularity comes problems, and getting the
field empty of people for photography is a
challenge. However, with the field booked
exclusively we'll have control over where people
go and with a bit of co-operation we'll all be
able to get the shots we want.
You'll be able to access the site from 9am through
till around 8/9pm. Facilities are limited,
although there were flushing toilets on the farm
available for public use last year.
Refreshments, probably best to bring your own.
I am considering bringing in a model for part of
the day, and I'll update this page once I've
decided how / if etc. There will be an
additional charge for the model.
Should the day be a washout, there is a cunning
plan and the farm has kept some dates back for the
Lordington Lavender Field (located a few minutes
off the A27 between Havant and Chichester)
Thursday 3rd August - 9am through to around

What will be covered
While it won't be a formal teaching event, I will be on hand
throughout the day. It'll be a good place to experiment with
long exposures (for moving clouds) and graduated ND filters.
Also, if you're up to the challenge to try and capture some of the
bees in flight.
Recommended equipment (but not necessarily
- Digital camera (ideally SLR or mirrorless)
- Lens between 10 and 70mm will probably be
perfect for the majority of this PED
- Extra camera batteries as some cameras tend to
eat batteries while doing long exposures.
- A tripod is essential for this PED if you
want to try the long exposures
- A remote cable trigger will make things
- Macro lens if you want to get close up with
