Luxury Photography Breaks with Mike in the New Forest National Park

 29th Dec 2009

photo-break-1Jayne and I have put together some two day breaks for two in the New Forest National Park at four Star Careys Manor Hotel and SenSpa.

Open to complete beginners and the more experienced, our photography breaks include One-to-One (and One-to-Two) photography training for two days, two nights and two days dinner bed and breakfast for two at Careys Manor - and use of their award winning £6m Thai Spa to relax in after a long day out shooting pictures.

Careys Manor and SenSpa is in the heart of the New Forest with its wild ponies, it's also only five miles from the coast so you have the best of both worlds to hone your camera skills in.

Careys Manor boasts three restaurants, 'The Manor' which blends contemporary and traditional English cuisine, 'Blaireau’s' French Bistro and The 'Zen Garden' Thai Restaurant.

photo-break-2All photography training is focused around the photographer(s). Whether you want to understand more about your cameras, work on lighting and composition or anything else - I'm your photography resource to use as you wish. We'll combine theory with lots of practical hands on photography to help you get to the next level - whatever that may be for you.

If the person you're with isn't a photographer there's plenty to keep them entertained. They can simply relax at the Hotel or luxuriate in Careys Manor Health Club and Thai SenSpa - which includes ...

  • Hydrotherapy Pool
  • Herbal Sauna
  • Crystal Steam Room
  • Ice Room
  • Jacuzzi
  • photo-break-3Experience Showers - Tropical, sea and ice storm showers complete with thunder and lightning (my favourite!)
  • Hammam Rooms
  • Tepidarium - a relaxation room with heated loungers
  • Thai massage and beauty treatments can be booked separately at SenSpa reception

Being in the New Forest there's also horse riding and cycling, Bournemouth and Southampton are only fifteen minutes away by train - the station's at the other end of the village. Historic coastal market town Lymington is only five minutes away by train where you can enjoy cobbled streets and shopping or catch a ferry to the isle of Wight.

A Luxury Photography Break costs £1295 and includes all the above (except therapy treatments) for two people. Bedrooms are double or twin on request and gift vouchers are always available.

This special price represents a £200 saving from Careys Manor - and £100 saving on two days One-to-One photography with me.
