Norfolk Tulip Fields Sunset Private Photography experience

Saturday 27th April 2024


This photoshoot opportunity is a glorious evening where we will spend sunset out in a unique location, we will be in Norfolk’s very own tulip fields in the West of Norfolk with the full landowner and farmer permission.
A large percentage of the proceeds will also be going towards 2 local charities The Tapping House and Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue
The private photoshoot will start at the location at 6 pm and aim to be finished well into the blue hour at around 9 pm, during the session we will be photographing through sunset with acres of Tulips as our backdrop.
This photoshoot is for anybody who has a basic understanding of the manual controls on their DSLR camera right through to the keen hobbyist who loves to get out there and knows their camera really well.
There will be help on hand if you do get stuck, just ask Dibs or Duncan who will also be there with their cameras if you need it, but please do note this is not a dedicated workshop for expert tuition to be on hand at all times, so please do not be surprised if you find them also photographing too.
A car will be essential during the session as you will be responsible for getting yourself to the rural West Norfolk location.
You will be supplied with a map of the location and postcode or What 3 words/coordinates if you prefer, a satnav is advisable.
In previous years people have found it helpful to bring a little stool or cushion to sit on as you are working at low levels a lot of the time.
