Capture the timeless villages and beautiful landscapes of the Cotswolds

One Day Workshop

This one-day workshop has been designed to help you improve your photography by developing your creative eye; taking into account composition, working with the available light and the use of filters. I will also help you gain a better understanding of your camera and its capabilities to enable you to get the best results so we’ll be covering depth of field, focusing, metering and use of the histogram.

Charming Villages

The Cotswolds is full of pretty villages but perhaps two of the loveliest are Snowshill and Lower Slaughter. We’ll be photographing both of these, plus we’ll be visiting Broadway Tower, an 18th century folly, located at one of the highest points in the Cotswolds.

Something for everyone

Regardless of whether you recently picked up a camera for the first time, or have been shooting for years, this is designed to be an enjoyable and beneficial days’ shooting. You will have the chance to create a number of images with constructive advice. If you are new to filters, there will also be the opportunity try a selection of Kase Filters on the day.

Sarah demonstrates an absolute wealth of knowledge takes every effort to try and instill as much knowledge in the attendees as is possible. Sarah took us to a number of various gorgeous locations, but each of the locations we were in gave us absolutely a load of time to make the best opportunity to develop practice using the skills that Sarah presented. The other key thing about these workshops is that they have been great fun with lots of laughter.

Excellent Cotswolds workshop with Sarah, the third one I’ve done. As ever, Sarah took the time to understand what I and the other participants wanted from the day and tuned her approach to suit. Great fun, very useful and I learned a lot.

Cotswolds Workshop - General Information

This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to improve their photography so photographers of all abilities are welcome aside of the complete beginner. If you are a complete beginner I recommend you opt for a 121 tailored workshop first.

If you are in any doubt if the workshop is suitable for you please call Sarah on 07760 498 112 to discuss.

I will give you both practical and technical advice, as well as individual guidance and hands on demonstrations in the field.  Over the course of the day, we will look at the impact of light on the scene, composition techniques, and  well as the use of filters.

We will meet at 9am in Stow on the Wold for a brief introduction and brief of the day over coffee before commencing. The workshop finishes at approximately 5pm depending on the time of year.

You will need to make your own way to and from the starting location. I will have my car for the workshop itself and can take 3 clients with me. A volunteer driver may be required if there are more attendees.

The workshop is suitable for all fitness levels – very little walking is involved.
