Workshops and Tours

“We both learnt a lot from an informative and enjoyable day.  You have a lot to offer people who are keen to take better pictures, and to do this in the beautiful setting of the Lake District.  Thank you”

This year I will be offering a number of photography workshops in the English Lake District. I can provide tuition on a full or half day basis.
Also available are one or two day tours. These differ from the workshops in that I do not provide tuition, but instead take you to the best photographic locations the Lake District has to offer. The exact locations will vary depending upon the time of year and where you are based, but I will try to accommodate any requests.

All of the workshops below can be booked at any date throughout the year by arrangement with me.

Half Day Workshops

This workshop is for you if you want to improve your photography but have limited time to do so. In a friendly, informal atmosphere, you will learn how to take control of your camera, moving away from auto mode to really get the best from your equipment. You will also learn about the basics of composition to help take your photography to the next level. The workshop will last approximately 4 hours and can be in the morning or afternoon depending upon your needs. We will be outside, on our feet for most of that time, so, although we will remain at valley level, appropriate outdoor clothing and some degree of fitness (suitable for gentle walking on mostly flat ground) will be required. You don’t need a fancy digital SLR camera, but you will need to have a camera that allows you the option to control the aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings.

£50 for one person
£90 for two people

Full day workshops

This workshop is for you if you like the content of the half day workshop, but have more time available and would like to explore (both photography and the Lake District) a little more. We will cover the same areas of photography as above, but will study them in more detail, really allowing you to deepen your understanding of each area and have more time to practice what you learn. The extra time also allows us to venture a little further should you wish to do so. These workshops will usually start around 10am, but we can include an early start or late finish to utilise the best light of the day at sunrise or sunset if you wish. This is obviously dependent upon the time of year, but can be arranged to suit your wishes.

£90 for one person
£150 for two people

One Day or Weekend Tours

On holiday in the Lake District? Would you like to be taken to the best places for photographing the area’s most beautiful features at the best times? Then these tours are for you. Although I am based in Kendal, the exact itinerary can be tailored to your location, the time of year and how far you want to walk. No instruction is included with these tours, but you will receive a full day’s (or weekend’s) photographic guiding to some of the best that the Lake District has to offer.

£80 for one person for one day
£140 for two people for one day

£160 for one person for two days
£280 for two people for two days
