Suitable for beginners or enthusiasts, my one-day, tailor-made photography workshops in the Lake District are equally rewarding in spring, summer, autumn or winter. Pine trees rooted to their reflections in sheltered tarns, dry-stone walls snaking over golden fells, mountain panoramas, tumbling streams... the Lake District is full of potential for creative photography. The challenge is how to distil the overwhelming scenery and ever-changing light into photographs with impact and originality.  

Highlights

• On this one-day workshop, I'll be able to give you the individual tuition and feedback you need in order to develop your landscape photography skills and take them to the next level – no matter what your level of experience.

• We'll delve into the art of composition, exploring how viewpoint, lens choice, careful framing and the use of leading lines can transform ordinary images into memorable ones.

• As well as the bigger picture (and there are plenty of those in the Lake District), we will look for details, textures and patterns in nature.

• How to capture light in all its forms will, of course, be central to our photographic forays – depending on the time of year, we'll photograph from dawn to dusk – and you will also learn how to get creative with filters and long exposures.

Why this trip?

• The small group size of up to three allows me to concentrate on your individual needs – whether you want to master essentials like exposure, focussing and depth-of-field, or develop your eye for composition or a particular photographic discipline.

• If you're a beginner, there will be plenty of time to become confident with your camera's settings.

• I'll provide instant feedback on your images throughout the day and if you'd like to include a session on post-processing using Lightroom, just let me know.

I just wanted to let you know that I had an amazing time. You were very patient and informative and I feel much more confident about my camera and taking better pictures. The workshop was a birthday present from a dear friend and I will be giving her the most positive feedback and thanks, which is very much down to your expertise and warm teaching manner.
