Photography Location Guide: North Lakes Woodland

This is the second post in a series designed to give you the low-down on a few of my favourite locations to shoot, from the sand to the studio and in between.  Previously, I posted about Lake Eden (you can find the link to that blog post here) and its charms, but today I’ll be focusing on a quieter, hidden gem.

Location: North Lakes Woodland.

If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind a bit of a walk to find the perfect spot, this could be for you.  There are no facilities here – no disabled access, no toilets, not even a carpark! Keeping in mind that there’s no refuge for inclement weather, if you’re brave enough, read on…

After we park on the grass, it’s a five minute walk to our shooting location.  There are no man-made structures here, just plenty of tall trees to provide an abundance of dappled light for the most beautiful, lush woodland backdrop.  If you like greenery, there’s plenty!  This location really provides that forest feel.

You might be thinking it’s not that versatile, but I’ve shot here with both families and formals, so think again!  The spot is perfect for late afternoon sessions, though morning sessions can be quite lovely here too – so again, if you’re bringing the kids and they’re in better moods in the mornings, this secluded spot might just be perfect for your family.
