Develop Your Mountain Photography

My Develop Your Mountain Photography course is about consolidating and growing your technical skills, encouraging you to think creatively and improving the quality of your picture taking. Depending upon your aspirations the workshop may include:

  • Optimising use of Aperture, Speed and Manual modes
  • Capturing light, wind (motion) and water
  • Thinking creatively, image visualisation and composition
  • Evaluating images, identifying successful elements and planning shots
  • Introduction to post-processing tools and techniques to enhance the image

The Develop your Mountain Photography course runs throughout the year. The course will last approximately 7-8 hours and provide the understanding needed to grow your picture making skills, stimulate your creativity and create eye-catching images. All you need to bring is your personal kit, camera (filters and tripod if you have them), food and a flask of hot drink.

One-to-one Develop My Mountain Photography and Small Group Courses

The Develop Your Mountain Photography course is available on a one-to-one or small group basis. This allows me to tailor your course to your specific requirements, skill level and interest. It also enables the arrangement of early and late starts providing access to the magic hours when the light is at its best and the most stunning images can be captured. Perhaps you would like to incorporate a late finish and include some night sky or dark sky photography? If you are fortunate you might even capture the Milky Way or a shooting star. Whatever you decide I will do my best to ensure a high quality and enjoyable day.

Course Costs: one-to-one tuition £180.  Small Groups: 2 persons £100pp, 3 persons 70pp

Please e-mail your preferred dates to book your day(s) and arrange payment.

Young people under the age of 18 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Fixed Date Courses

My Develop Your Mountain Photography course is also available on set dates throughout the year. On these courses the group size is deliberately kept small, maximum 3, so there will be plenty of one-to-one time and ample opportunity to ask questions.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have cancelled our 2021 programme. We are currently working on our Lake District 2022 programme – this should be completed soon. If you would like me to forward dates and course details please e-mail and I will send these as soon as they are finalised.

Accommodation

My photography courses can be booked either with or without accommodation allowing you to choose exactly what you prefer. If you would like to book with accommodation please go to our photography holidays and short breaks webpage.

My photography courses do not include accommodation allowing you to choose exactly what you prefer. A large range of accommodation is available in the Lake District and we are happy to help organise this. You could also consider booking a wild camping and photography course on a one-to-one basis. This is especially enjoyable and beneficial in the summer when the sun sets late and rises early. Please visit our Wild Camping and Photography page for more details.

Develop My Mountain Photography beyond the Lake District

If you wish to explore an area outside of the Lake District please contact me by e-mail or phone for an informal chat about your requirements. I am a regular visitor to Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons and just love visiting and photographing Britain’s wild places.

Gift Cards

One-to-one workshops and group courses make memorable gifts. If you book a one-to-one workshop or group course as an inspirational gift or for a special occasion you will be provided with a downloadable voucher containing details of the day.
