Lake District Photography Workshop

I have been photographing the Lake District in all its splendour for quite a few years now. To say I know the area well is an understatement. I'm sure you already know this but I create weekly Youtube videos. Many of which have been from the Lakes. I live less than two hours away so I consider the area to be my local go-to landscape photography destination.

  • Three luxury nights of single-occupancy hotel accommodation
  • Transport around the Lakes
  • Post-Processing and critique sessions

Lake District National Park Photography Workshop

What to expect...
My workshop of up to 5 attendees is action-packed. Depending on the weather and sunset/sunrise times I'll be taking you to some incredible places for landscape photography. I usually crowbar in at least 3 or 4 different locations per day. I like to mix the locations up too. You obviously like lakes. What about big vistas? what about a little woodland? I'm sure you like waterfalls. If the answer is yes to some or all of the aforementioned then I've got it covered. I factor them all in, this way, I can guarantee there won't be a dull moment.

I’m keeping the group size down to 5, this way It’ll give me the opportunity to spend the maximum amount of time with each attendee.

Skill Level
I have created this workshop for all skill levels. New to photography, a keen enthusiast or better? don't worry, I've got you covered. As I always say during my introductory speech on the first morning of the workshop, you can use me as a one-to-one for the duration or you can simply use me as an Uber driver. Of course, that's a little tongue-in-cheek but some people like me standing over their shoulder and some just prefer to crack on and ask for help as and when.

Fitness Level
This is normally the first question people ask. The answer is simple, as fit as me and I'm not fit at all! Most locations are just a short walk from the van. If we need to walk a little further which obviously we will do at times then it's a case of slowly-slowly always wins the race!

What skill level do I have to be?
All skills are welcome, beginner to advanced – With such a small group I can cater for all levels. It’ll almost be like a 1-2-1 for the week. Group training will also be given of course!

How many Attendees?
5 - We restrict the numbers to six to ensure you get as much tuition as possible. It'll feel like a full-on 1-2-1 for a whole week. You can also have as much space as you like!

Where do we stay?
We stay in a superb, warm and family-run luxury guest house. It's situated in the centre of the Lakes. It's perfectly situated offering easy access to most of the Lake District Photography hot spots. Each guest has their own (single occupancy) room with an en-suite bathroom.

How fit do I need to be?
This is normally the first question people ask. The answer is simple, as fit as me and I'm not fit at all! Most locations are just a short walk from the van. If we need to walk a little further which obviously we will do at times then it's a case of slowly slowly always wins the race!

Is my camera good enough?
Is it an SLR Camera? then yes – all of the above could have been taken on a £250 DSLR the results would have been the same, GUARANTEED!
Pro Camera available to rent £10 per day (inc. lens)

What Equipment will I need?
Your Camera – Sturdy Tripod – ND filters (these aren't expensive and I can advise the right ones to buy)

What if the weather is bad?
As a Landscape Photographer inclement weather is just something we cannot predict. The best planning in the world can't allow for adverse weather conditions, especially when planning so far in advance. The weather is just something that we as photographers must be prepared for. Because of this, we DO NOT GUARANTEE that we will be able to visit all of the locations listed. We'll certainly try our best though!

How much deposit and when do I pay the balance?
£200 deposit is required to secure your place on the course – the balance is due 6 weeks prior to the 1st day of training.
