Cannock workshop

Cannock Chase, a gem nestled in Staffordshire, England, is known for its stunning natural beauty, diverse wildlife, and captivating woodlands. On a crisp morning, I had the privilege of embarking on a unique 1-2-1 workshop with a client in this picturesque locale. Our adventure began at sunrise, and as the soft, golden light bathed the forest in a warm glow, we embarked on an unforgettable journey through the woods, uncovering hidden treasures and showcasing some of Chase's most iconic characters, including the beloved Groot.

As we ventured deeper into the woods, the silence and serenity of this place enveloped us, making it an ideal setting for our photography workshop.

As we meandered through the woods, I couldn't resist introducing my client to some of my favorite characters of the Chase. One of the most iconic and endearing beings is Groot, the ancient tree that resembles a guardian of the forest. With its gnarled, bark-covered trunk and sprawling branches, Groot exudes a sense of wisdom and resilience that makes it a cherished subject for photographers.
