I am now happy to start back up, with social distancing in mind my photography workshop/course in the beautiful Lake District.

One Day photo adventure - Dawn to Dusk Workshop

The Lake District is a beautiful location for photographers.

I will take you to locations at the best time of day or weather, I will help you look and find the most engaging composition to best help your photos in each location.

The focus of this workshop/course is on taking photographs, including dawn and sunset shots.  I will work with you at your own pace, keeping it simple and helpful to get more from your photography and to find your own composition skills. 

We will try to find the opportunity to discuss your best photo from of the day in a relaxed fun and friendly critique session.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to build your own portfolio whilst learning new techniques and confidence in the field.
