SATURDAY 25th February 2017:
Starting at 10.00am, Neil Cave and his team at TimeLine Events will have unprecedented access to locations that will allow unhindered photography whilst you learn vital new skills and techniques from the team.
This day has been designed to offer you an insight into an area of photography that many photographers would otherwise not have, with a mix of set scenes with and without period actors, outdoors and indoors, along with industrial architecture and heritage all set in this wonderful location that has stood the test of time for well over a hundred and fifty years.
After a full day of photography you will retire to your hotel, the De Vere, Milton Hill near Abingdon. The evening will be a relaxed affair with time to enjoy a nice meal at the hotel, as well as a presentation of work from past TimeLine Events. This will culminate in a questions and answers session hosted by Neil and his team.
