We will also visit new locations around the Lake District that I have taken photographs at over many years, this will bring the opportunity to add exciting new work to your portfolio.
Lakes, mountains, waterfalls and even the coast are covered in this extensive workshop of Lakeland. The programme is aimed at people who want to improve their learning and composition skills. You may have a good understanding of photography already and simply want to be guided to breathtaking scenery.
All the workshops we run are based on a relaxed format to make the most of your time and importantly enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

On the sessions you will learn how to take your photography to the next level. I will talk you through each stage of the process to the final image,more importantly, I will explain how to take these new skills out into the landscape and increase your vision in front of the scene.
Small Workshop Group Size
A large part of my courses are about learning to see where an image is going to develop and looking at the landscape with a new eye for composition. As I only take small group's, this gives me plenty of time for one to one tuition. It also means we can easily stop along the routes to make images all through the day.
