Learn Photography amid the striking landscapes of Snowdonia and Anglesey
Rugged and majestic mountain scenery
Snowdonia national park is known for its dramatic and somewhat brooding mountainous scenery. It is also home to historic castles, waterfalls and gritty industrial landscapes, all of which combine to provide great diversity for landscape photography.
One of the main draws of this area has to be the dramatic Ogwen Valley with Tryfan and the wonderfully named Devil’s Kitchen forming a magnificent backdrop to the glacial lake; Llyn Idwal.
All around we’ll find beautiful lake and mountain views to photograph.

Anglesey is renowned when it comes to spectacular coastline with much of it a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, With sheer cliffs and rocky shorelines, the scenery is inspirational , offering some fabulous locations for photography.
