Natural Light Photography Workshops

Mark and Sam think its important to have small groups on the workshops in order to make the most of the day. Our maximum number for any tour is 6 people. This gives lots of one to one time to each of the group and because there is always two tutors you can have as much attention as you need. Also we think that having two photographers on all workshops adds a lot to the learning experience as Sam and Mark sometimes have quite different styles of photography and it’s good to hear two ideas for every composition. 

Visit some of Yorkshire’s most famous views

Yorkshire makes the perfect backdrop to improve your photography, and its not short of a spectacular view or two. Our workshops are aimed to make the most of a location at certain times of the year.

Photography is all about planning and although we can never guarantee the weather, we hope to capture the views at their best. Early in the year we head out to Aysgarth Falls, made famous by the Robin Hood film with Kevin Costner, this is a good time to practice moving water shots, we then explore Bolton Abbey and Strid Wood in time for the Bluebells and even a little later for the garlic to bloom. In the summer months we make our way to the spectacular landscape around Malham and Gordale Scar. Heading towards the end of the year we visit the awesome Ribblehead Viaduct with views of the Yorkshire Three Peaks before returning back to Aysgarth and Bolton Abbey to make the most of the Autumn colours.

Although its impossible to photograph everything in one day we aim to give a good grounding into how to plan a trip in the hope that you can return at a later date and put into practice all that you learn.
