Please note that Nikon cameras and lenses will be available for attendees to try out during the day; in fact these workshops are an excellent opportunity to handle and try out Nikon equipment before making a purchase. However, attendees are asked to bring their own kit - macro lens, long lens, flash and tripod - to get the best from the practical sessions.

Heather Angel: "Everything is planned to perfection and nothing is left to chance. My annual Nikon workshops have become a fixed date in the photographic calendar. The innovative formula combines an attractive venue with splendid views over the Sussex countryside, the provision of technical expertise and ample opportunity to try out a wide range of Nikon equipment. All this provides a memorable experience for everyone.”

Copies of Heather's books - including Wild Kew, which is the basis of the 2010 summer exhibition at Kew Gardens - will be available this weekend.
