Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) has a Fixed-Point Photography Monitoring project, to study how AONB landscapes change over time.

The project is run by volunteers, who take photographs twice a year from 56 locations across the AONB.

To help the volunteers with their photography skills, the AONB is holding six fixed-point photography workshops, led by professional photographer, Steve Welsh.

The sessions are free, include a light lunch, and are open to everyone, not just AONB volunteers.

Emma Beaman–Green, of Cannock Chase AONB, said: “Everyone is welcome to learn the skills of how to take a beautiful fixed-point photograph at these free workshops. All you need is a digital camera and a love of the great outdoors.

“With the help of the expert tuition, we hope more people will have the confidence to volunteer and help us to photograph and monitor the AONB landscape.”

The Thursday workshops are running from 10am to 12 noon on:

• 10 November 2011 – Springslade Lodge
• 24 November 2011 – John O Leary Centre, Marquis Drive
• 8 December 2011 – Beaudesert Scout Camp
• 15 December 2011 – TBC
• 12 January 2012 – Chasewater Innovation Centre
• 26 January 2012 – Poplars Landfill

Places are limited and need to be booked. To reserve your place on one of the photography workshops, please call Cannock Chase AONB on 01889 882613 or email
