Wild Wonder Beyond Project - Photography Course



Portbury Wharf Photography Day with AWT

It was the school holidays and I was going for a photography day at Portbury Wharf, close to junction 19 of the M5 and very close to where Dad used to work.  It is a lovely nature reserve which is quite new.  It was the first time I  had been there and I really enjoyed myself.


The event was organised by Avon Wildlife Trust and the photographer was Iain Greene.    AWT had a project where they would publish photographs from the reserve all the way through the year, so I sent in some of mine to represent late autumn.

Iain Green was really great at interacting with us kids and I learnt quite a bit about macro photography.   Ian also runs wildlife workshops for children and adults.  He arranges these through schools, work and other groups through his organisation called Wild Wonder Beyond Project http://www.wildwonder.co.uk/.
