You don't want to miss out!


Let's create an escape to discover the hidden gems in Clermont.

Why Clermont?

• Home to a boutique Dahlia and romantic flower farm.- Glen Elgin Flower Farm

• The perfect location for capturing vibrant dahlias, Queen Anne's lace, roses, and more of the old-fashioned type of flowers.

• Opportunity to photograph butterflies and other insects. When we were there, there was an abundance of butterflies; it was delightful to experience.

The Adventure!

• Date & Time: Saturday and Sunday 16th and 17th March 2024

The Dahlias are predicted to be at their best in mid-March with all their vibrant colors and glorious curls waiting for you to capture them.


• Note: Myself and Trish Jones will travel out on Friday; of course, if you are from outside the area, you are welcome to travel out on Friday too.

Kick-off at a Local Café:

We will meet at 10:00 am for a still-life photography session and brunch/early lunch.

This café is most interesting; not only is the food scrumptious, but it also has an abundance of beautiful and interesting ornaments, tea sets, and other wonderful items throughout the large café.

We have permission to photograph unique café scenes, and I can set up still-life scenes for you.

Café closes at noon – don’t be disappointed - arrive early to enjoy the experience.

Flower Farm Exploration:

After lunch, you can explore the town further or book into your room if it's ready.

We will depart for the flower farm at 1:30 pm (approx. a 40 min drive).

We will go through different activities, from a basic flower portrait to using advanced techniques to create amazing and eye-catching floral images. 

We will then have some free time to explore the flower beds and photograph them in your style. 

At sunset, we will begin the journey back to Clermont and enjoy dinner together at one of the local pubs. I tried the Chinese restaurant there, and it was great!

Afternoon tea will be provided.


Enjoy a leisurely breakfast. 

Floral Flat Lays

At 9:30 am, we will meet at a local hall and explore creating and photographing romantically styled Floral Flat Lays. I will provide all the props and lighting you will need for this, along with some flowers from the Flower Farm.

Morning tea will be provided. 


Time to grab some lunch together. After lunch, it's time for us to head off in our own directions. You may want to explore the area some more or head on home.
