FUJIFILM Product Specialist
Carol Hartfree has been obsessed with photography since her early 20s when she got her first SLR film camera. With a degree in photography, and many years of working as a freelance photographer and trainer, Carol has gained a great deal of technical and creative knowledge.
Carol is known for her kind and gentle approach to her subject matter; her work being described as 'Photography with a light touch'. This way of working extends to her teaching, helping photographers get the most out of their equipment and their creative vision, whatever their skill level or experience.
Medium - this walk has a couple of small hills but there is step-free access throughout. There will be lots of opportunities to take a break from walking, though this may not always be indoors.
