John kept us all smiling with his varied photos and anecdotes. It was interesting to hear about the subtle but effective changes he had made to some of the images.
John's recommendations for sites to visit for photo shoots included:
Within 20 miles:
Birmingham Nature Centre
Birmingham Gas Street Basin and the town centre - John had some super misty and rainy day photos showing commuters racing through downpours on foot and on bikes.
Shugborough - bridges and canal boats
Over 30 miles
Bradgate Park - particularly for the deer
Stratford Butterfly Farm
Donna Nook - for seals in October - December
