Venue: Chawton House

“My daughter and her friend (both age 13) recently attended a photography workshop with Claire Lewis. The grounds of Chawton House are stunning so they provided a wonderful backdrop for the afternoon. Claire is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the girls learnt how to use their cameras in semi-manual mode and how to frame the perfect photo! They thoroughly enjoyed the workshop (as did the mums who also picked up lots of handy tips about their iPhones!) and it was great to see the girls being creative and feeling inspired. I would definitely recommend one of Claire’s workshops.”

Family Photography Workshop Participant

Join Chawton House’s in-house photographer, Claire Lewis, for a fun and creative photography workshop this Easter, focusing on capturing picture perfect photographs of the stunning spring flowers blooming in the Chawton House Gardens.   

Don’t worry about what type of camera you have, it’s all about enjoying the craft of capturing images and spending time with your family. All you need to bring is a camera, whether it is digital or analogue, a smartphone or iPad. Whatever you have, Claire Lewis will work closely with you and your child throughout the session to ensure that you both leave the workshop with a better understanding of how to use your camera and with the skills to capture beautiful photographs.  

This workshop will take place mostly outdoors in the beautiful Chawton House Gardens so you will have lots of time outside to practice your skills and take some truly beautiful photographs.  

This workshop is ideal for children aged 10+. Children must be accompanied by an adult for the entire workshop.  

£65 for an Adult and Child ticket, including a light lunch. 

About Claire Lewis:  

As a photographer I want to share what I see, the magic of the light, that moment which stops you in your tracks and be that visual storyteller.  I’m lucky that I can travel so much and have had the opportunity to photograph some amazing moments- The Bolshoi Academy, Moscow, and the Thumbelina Live Ballet are just a few of my highlights.   

In the UK my main body of work is Commercial Photography. Whether I’m working with a small business who are wishing to break into the media world, creating visuals for websites or just getting those important general marketing captures, I love collaborating with creatives to bring a production value everybody can feel proud of.  

Having started my journey from college days in the dark room to full digital today, building my own studio has given me a vast amount of knowledge that I love to share. Sharing my knowledge through teaching small groups at Chawton House is when I can share my experiences and teach you some of the tips and tricks of the photography world.
