Small Group Landscape Photography Workshops

Photograph the glorious heather clad landscape

Our Peak District photography workshop offers a great opportunity to capture the beauty of this area when the heather is in flower. Britain’s very first National Park; the Peak District is thought to be the second most-visited national park in the world. An area of great diversity, it is conventionally split into the northern Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found, and the southern, more gentle, White Peak, home to Dovedale amongst other beauty spots. It is an area of great natural beauty made up of rocky outcrops, heather covered moorland and wonderful limestone dales.

Visited the Peak District for my 10th Image Seen workshop recently. The heather was looking wonderful and the scenery stunning. Sarah's organisation and planning made everything run smoothly, and her friendly knowledgeable manner make these workshops a pleasure to be on. I am delighted how much my photography continues to improve.Can't wait for the next one.

Peak District Workshop - General Information

The workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to improve their photography so photographers of all levels of experience are welcome. We will give you both practical and technical advice, as well as individual guidance and hands on demonstrations in the field. We will also look at the creative side of photography and developing your vision.

We will meet at 6pm on the first evening for introductions and a programme brief before dinner. Our exact itinerary is weather dependent however our photography will commence the next morning with a dawn shoot before retuning to the hotel for breakfast. We will then venture out again to explore more locations. We will have a short break early – mid afternoon before our late afternoon shoot. We will have an early dinner followed by our sunset shoot. Day two follows a similar format however we will be out all day this time, finishing at 5:30pm.

We will visit a number of locations over the course of the workshop which will offer you numerous challenges and allow you to fully explore your creative potential. There will also be time to review and critique your images and the opportunity to discuss them with Sarah as we look back on our days’ photography. The workshop has a relaxed format and is designed to be enjoyable as well as well as educational, so aside of improving your photography you can also enjoy the beautiful surroundings and most importantly have fun!

We will have one to two vehicles to take us between locations on days one and two, but a volunteer driver will be required if numbers dictate, and fuel reimbursed.
