Sunday, October 27th, 7am-3pm – an early morning photography shoot and group critique

Workshop Location:


786 Church Road, Wayne PA 19087

Course Description:


Compelling images are made when a fully engaged body, mind, and soul are coupled with impeccable camera technique. This workshop will help you find and translate your own personal vision of garden beauty by providing you with new tools, new ideas and new experiences. We’ll be shooting at the edges of the day at the peak of fall color in one of the world’s most exceptional gardens so expect to find drama!

The weekend begins Friday evening with a reception, giving you a chance to meet Rob and mingle with participants. Following the reception, Rob will give a presentation on photographic design principals to jumpstart the workshop. Participants will have access to the garden both Saturday and Sunday before the garden opens to the public. Afternoon sessions will allow plenty of time for editing, discussion, and group critiques.

The workshop is open to all skill levels but is best suited for individuals who are comfortable and competent operating the equipment they bring. All cameras (including phone cameras) are welcome but bring along extra cards, spare batteries and any additional lenses you care to work with. A tripod is useful but not necessary. A laptop to download and edit your work is strongly recommended and will allow you to better participate in the group critiques. This workshop will be held rain or shine. Regardless of weather, dry socks and spare shoes are always a good idea.

Rob Cardillo has been providing exceptional images of plants, gardens and the people who tend them for 20 years. His work appears regularly in Garden Design, Country Gardens, GROW, the New York Times and over 25 garden books. Check out Rob’s work on his website.
