Mountains and Rivers starts early in the day and is weather dependent which may also affect the location. 

The aim is to be on location as the sunrise casts its first light across the hillside catching the heather in its early morning rays. If time is still with us, we may move on to a second location which will give a different view and scale to the scenery.

Tuition level will be aimed at the photographer who wishes to explore the finer aspects of composition and understanding their camera and its settings. There will be tuition on filtration, in particular, the need for a polarising filter and the use of graduated filters. Cameras needed will be DSLRs, lenses required should range from 16mm to 200mm.

The day typically begins at 8 am (depending on weather and sunrise times). We then move on to location photographing different aspects of the countryside which then runs through until around 9 -11 am, depending on the light, conditions and the time allocated to the workshop. A critique during the workshop will give the opportunity for some immediate feedback on the technical and creative elements of your images.  Please feel free to ask questions at any time, I would be happy to answer any queries regarding photography that you might have during the workshop.

I primarily use Nikon DSLR’s, but please bring whatever DLSR you have.  I’m more than happy working with both complete beginners as well as enthusiat landscape photographers. The day is tailored to your requirements.

  • No two courses will be the same, each will be tailored to your requirements and level of experience, from beginners to enthusiasts.

  • Full day or half day courses available.

  • Courses are suitable for owners of all digital cameras

  • I will have my camera with me and may be taking pictures myself during the course – you will be free to use my camera equipment including tripod and filters.

By definition, landscape photography means getting out in the landscape, which is usually uneven, steep, slippery and wet, as such I cannot accept any liability for injury that may be sustained during the course.

All bookings require a minimum £50 deposit. - The balance is then due 4 weeks prior to the commencement of the workshop.

Snowdnia courses are available on request.

Under 18s can be accompanied by a non-participating parent/guardian at no extra cost.

Courses will usually be run on weekends at a date that is convenient for you.
