Colour will be the inspiration for this course, and through learning about camera mechanics (aperture, shutter speed and ISO), our students will be able to capture colour in a new way! We will look at famous photographers work together, discussing why it is successful and how the students can use it as inspiration for their photographs. We will spend some time indoors discussing camera mechanics, and the rest outdoors photographing the beautiful colours of Petworth together.

Our teen photography course takers will learn how to drop auto and move to full manual mode, enabling them to capture images not possible on auto.

A stately mansion nestled in the South Downs housing the finest art collection in the care of the National Trust.

1431742979546-the-house-and-upper-pond-at-petworthPetworth has a rich and varied history waiting to be discovered. Stroll through the state rooms saturated with internationally important paintings by artists such as Van Dyck, Reynolds, Titian and Blake together with classical and neo-classical sculptures. Follow in the footsteps of JMW Turner who spent long periods at the mansion under the patronage of the 3rd Earl of Egremont, and whose paintings of Petworth park can be seen at Petworth today.

The servants’ quarters by contrast offer a glimpse of life ‘below stairs’. Imagine the hustle and bustle of servant life in the Historic Kitchens and myriad ancillary rooms.

The landscape gives every impression of being totally natural but in reality nothing is further from the truth. The park was transformed in the 1750s and early 1760s by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.
