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.

Rather than a fixed list of landscape photography workshop courses for 2021, I am taking a more informal approach.
So, I would like to invite you to contact me with locations and areas you would like to visit, 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. ‘We can always edit some of our images if the weather is poor’ seems to be the usual excuse. Some even fail to spell a simple name like SKYE correctly which hardly bodes well!

Don’t be afraid to ask about workshops at short notice, I will try my best to meet your requirements.

Here is an example of one of my Cornish photography workshops.

CORNWALL LANDSCAPE 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.

DESCRIPTION

We will meet in the car park for the Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve.
Then 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 nearly 100 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.

What is included?
All tuition and advice during the evening is included.

What isn’t included?
Travel to and from Cornwall and between the 2 locations (easier to follow in your own vehicle), personal travel insurance, protective clothing, food and drink (the famous Jamaica Inn is just a short drive from Colliford Lake), camera equipment inc. tripods.
