My Top 10 Cameras

[26th December 2020] The best 10 cameras I have ever owned. Some obvious ones, some less so, in my top 10 cameras, the main criteria is that I have actually owned and used all of these cameras, as opposed to just reading about them. Therefore, I feel well placed to comment on what ticks the…

Colin McRae World Rally Champion – 25 Years On

[22nd November 2020] You don’t need Doctor Who’s Tardis to go back to Wednesday 22nd November 1995, the day that Colin McRae (and co-driver Derek Ringer) became Britain’s first World Rally Champions after an epic trouncing of Subaru teammates Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya from Spain. I have raided my archives to bring you a…

My Year In Cameras

[7th August 2020] OK, so I get through a lot of cameras and lenses! Really though, no matter how long I try a camera system at a photographic dealer or photography show, the only way to find out if it works for me is to own it for a while. A broad knowledge of several…

Photographing A Car Rally With A £40 Camera

[10th March 2020] First launched in August 2006, the Canon EOS 400D is a digital SLR (DSLR) camera with a 10.1 megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor. Paired with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM lens, I took the Canon EOS 400D camera to the recent Snowman Rally, ultimately what turned out to be the only round…

FujiFilm X-T1 Revisited

[26th February 2020] On the day of the FujiFilm X-T4 launch I am revisiting the pioneer of the Fuji X-T line, the X-T1. Announced in January 2014 the X-T1 was the first FujiFilm interchangeable lens mirrorless camera to adopt single lens reflex (SLR) styling with a central viewfinder and a ‘faux’ pentaprism. Indeed it was…

Why The FujiFilm GFX (50R) Didn’t Work For Me

[20th February 2020] The FujiFilm GFX 50 system has been on my radar since its official launch in February 2017. The idea of a 51.4 megapixel medium-format (ish) was hugely appealing to a landscape photographer but the combination of the price (£6199 at launch) and the small range of lenses was enough to prevent the…

Landscape photography workshops by Mark Simpson

Landscape Photography Workshops

For the past few years I have run a busy schedule of landscape photography tuition workshop courses at various locations across the UK including Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Northumberland, North and South Wales, including Anglesey.

Now based on the Isle of Skye in Scotland I am able to offer bespoke 1 to 1 and small group workshops (up to 3 participants, if you have friends or relatives who would like to join you).
I specialise in areas where I have actually lived. For example, the Isle of Skye in Scotland, Dorset, Cornwall or Hampshire’s New Forest.
It is worth remembering that most photographers who offer workshops at these locations are visitors themselves and do not have the intimate knowledge that living in an area brings, with no ‘plan B, C or D’ if the weather conditions are not favourable at the main locations.

My landscape photography workshop courses are totally customised to your requirements and feature a half or full day of photography and instruction including digital, film, long exposures and black and white tuition.

The small size of the group allows me to provide personalised tuition and advice based on your experience and requirements and also to maximise the potential of each location without overcrowding.

My landscape photography workshops will (hopefully) return sometime in 2021, click here for full details or subscribe to my newsletter to receive regular information.
