“Take your landscape photography to the next level or try a new technique, learning at your own pace in a relaxed informal environment.”
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).
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 return in 2021.
Here is an example of one of my workshops.
CORNWALL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
GOLITHA FALLS & COLLIFORD LAKE
A 4 hour afternoon landscape photography tuition workshop course on the southern fringes of the Bodmin Moor Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in Cornwall – £129-£199 per person.
We will meet in the car park for the Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve and walk through the ancient oaks and beeches of Draynes Wood to the gorge where the River Fowey flows in a series of spectacular cascades and waterfalls that drop 90 metres in altitude. After 90 minutes or so we will drive the short distance to Colliford Lake Nature Reserve to shoot the ‘flooded forest’ and hopefully a spectacular sunset too.
This workshop is limited to a maximum of 5 participants (a minimum of 3 at the £129.00 rate), if you would prefer it can also be run on an individual 1 to 1 basis for £199.00. A reasonable level of fitness is required as there is some scrambling over often slippery rocks at Golitha Falls and a 30 minute walk around Colliford Lake.
In addition to visiting these stunning locations we will cover the following topics to improve your images and the enjoyment of your photography – composition, how to read light, the relationship between shutter speed, aperture and ISO, hyper focal distance, depth of field, shooting RAW, the histogram and anything else you may wish to learn or cover.
Ideally you will have a digital SLR or compact system/mirrorless camera with a wide angle and a standard to medium telephoto zoom (or prime) lenses, plus a tripod. Filters including a polariser would be useful and solid neutral density (ND) filters are essential if you wish to capture long exposures. If you have a FujiFilm X-series compact system camera I can show you the many less obvious features that make this a great landscape photography tool.
