TESTIMONIALS

Full review can be found here: Review – I was amazed at his wealth of knowledge of the Peak District and I soon realized he knew the area like the back of his hand” – “I thoroughly enjoyed the day learning new skills

James Pedlar, JamesPictures.co.uk

On August the 11th I attended the workshop ‘Heather in the Peak District’ given by James Grant (Photography).

Although the weather was not that good (wind and rain) it was great fun.

First we went to Fairbrook (waterfall) and later on to Derwent Edge (Salt Cellar).

The group was small (4 persons) and therefore personal attention for a greater learning experience was guaranteed.

James handed out really useful tips; he is very knowledgeable in photography.

If you are serious with landscape photography I would certainly recommend this workshop

Herman Schutte, Your Content Goes Here

Had a great day with James.
He has an excellent knowledge of the local area and his landscape photography skills are second to none. With the knowledge I gained on the day, I managed to take my photography to the next level.
I can most definitely recommend him.

David Ironbar, Your Content Goes Here

My second workshop having booked on the workshop after my enjoyable one in January. As I was the only attendee the workshop was really relaxed and James worked with me to get the most from the workshop I could, unfortunately the weather wasn’t in our favour for the sunset and James was more than happy to stay out to the allotted time, but as I had such a great couple of hours before I didn’t need to see any more. I would highly recommend James to anyone, he is great at demonstrating what he means and doesn’t make you feel stupid. Even if he tells me off for abusing my lenses 

Laura Olding, Your Content Goes Here

James Grant is a superb landscape photographer with a passion and detailed knowledge of the countryside he loves including the Peak District. He is also a standout tutor willing to share his photographic know-how freely with his clients.

I was fortunate enough to attend my first photographic workshop with him recently in the Peak District and came away truly inspired. James is very approachable, patient, helpful and willing to demonstrate how to get the best results through,for example; choice of location, attention to weather/cloud detail, best positioning in relation to sunlight, composition, setting-up of camera, best use of filters and equipment and post processing techniques to name a few. He goes the extra mile and even gave us all access to his wonderful book ‘Peak District Through The Lens’ which apart from being a stunning portfolio of his work, also contains really useful information about photography in general and photographing the Peak District.

There was a nice buzz about the group (4 of us), everybody got on and all I can say is I am so glad I did this workshop and I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in photography and/or who loves the outdoors. Thanks James!! 5 Stars !!

Bart Peel, Your Content Goes Here

As a complete landscape novice I wanted to develop my skills and attending a one day workshop with James proved to be ideal. James has an easy-going nature and is a patient teacher. His knowledge of the Peak District provided a variety of locations that allowed us to practice a whole range of techniques. Using weirs, underground tunnels and sweeping vistas allowed James to demonstrate how to use filters, depth of field, composition and manual focus to obtain stunning photographic results. I’d recommend a day with James to anyone who wants to learn landscape photography.

Phillip Barnes

I spent a long day with James in the Derbyshire Peak district on the bluebells and woodland workshop. James met me at a carpark in Cromford and we headed out to shoot a small waterfall and had a chat about what I wanted to have a go at. I had brought a fairly new camera with me so wasn’t that familiar with what it could do but James managed to get the settings sorted so I take a nice slow shot on the waterfall which I was happy with.
We walked miles during the day stopping off at James’s favourite places to get photos including a nice area full of bluebells.
We ended the day on top of Baslow edge for a sunset shot which I was really happy with.
James’s knowledge of photography is really good, he is very patient and gives some really good tips and guidance on how to make my photography more satisfying.
I can 100% recommend spending a session with James to gain more confidence in landscape photography. I can also recommend his book “peak district through the lens” as a must read for budding landscape photographers.

James Bolton, Your Content Goes Here

I recently took part in a one day  Dark Peak District workshop. While the early January weather was pretty poor, I nevertheless enjoyed the day. James training style made everyone feel included, he chose 4 contrasting locations that made the best of the difficult conditions and was efficient and friendly in organising the day. His local knowledge and passion for the Peak District were clearly apparent, both in person as well as in his excellent e-book: Peak District Through the Lens. I would certainly consider doing further training with James.

Philip Tata

A combination of a detailed knowledge of the local area and a passion for photography makes for a great workshop with James.
I have come away with a number of new locations to explore – lovely to meet you James, and thanks for a great day out!

Beverley Wood, Your Content Goes Here

I had a great day out with James in the Peak District a couple of weeks ago. It was my first time in the Peak District and despite the shocking weather I managed to get the answers I needed and have returned since and have been practising!

Paul Dann

Had a really great workshop with James in the Peak District. Myself and a friend learnt a lot of new techniques, took some great photos, and had a very enjoyable day talking about and learning about photography. James is a great bloke, easy-going and knowledgeable. It was a super day.

Ian Sabroe, Your Content Goes Here

My photographic skill was left stranded in nowhere but the workshop helped me a lot. Despite the weather wasn’t cheerful, it’s still worth it.

I read his book before the workshop which made me quicker to get used to the environment. James always uses simple way to explain techniques and shares what he knows. A very kind and knowledgeable photographer. His book and workshops are able to help people who wants to improve their skills.
Thank you James

HoHsuan Lai, Your Content Goes Here

Having been introduced to James’s book, I decided it would be a good idea to go on a workshop. Well 6th November came and I was wellie deep in water photographing several waterfalls, as in the book. I have learnt a lot about composition, filters and the weather. I’m hoping to go on more workshops in 2017. I will of course be visiting Derbyshire again to visit more of the sites shown in the book.

Ronald Berry

I attended James’ workshop on Saddleworth moor recently and would recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve their photography. It was a very enjoyable day.

During the afternoon and evening I learnt a lot about composition, use of filters and simplifying camera settings in general. I can now concentrate more on getting a good shot rather than spend ages fiddling with the settings. I also picked up tips on what to take and what not to take on photo sessions.

We started off in good weather but it became apparent that a band of rain was approaching and we wouldn’t be able to get any sunset shots. However, on our way down from the moor we followed a stream and were able to get some great waterfall shots. James was happy to stop and take photographs during the descent even though it was raining at times.

I found James’ very easy to get on with, he is very knowledgeable and I liked his relaxed approach. Check out his web site to see some of his inspiring photographs.

Gary Woodhead, Your Content Goes Here

Would recommend taking a course to anyone looking to improve their landscape photography. I enjoyed the course, despite the heavy rain, which forced a slightly earlier end to the course. Was introduced to filters and also talked through using Lightroom. Lots of advice and support given.

John Ryde, Your Content Goes Here

I recently had a workshop up in the Peaks with James with a view to learning more about landscape photography. In weather that can only be described as ‘biblical’ I had a great day chasing the light and getting some great shots. James has a great knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject and is happy to pass that on with a natural ability to teach. He also seems to have a knack of picking the right place at the right time!!

I’d highly recommend a workshop day to anyone who wants to learn more about landscape photography and enjoy a great day out in the Peak District.

Thanks James, keep up the great work!

Steve Page, Your Content Goes Here

I went with James recently on a workshop around the Peaks and thought it was a very insightful and educational experience.

I wanted to gain the confidence and knowledge to be able to take landscape photos myself and came away with a new found desire to go out and put what I learned into practice.

Would recommend for anyone wanting to learn or perfect there photography.

Rich Tallent, Your Content Goes Here

I really enjoyed the workshop in the Peak District on the Winter Solstice.  The scenery was brilliant and  James advice and tuition was excellent.  I am looking forward to booking another workshop with James in 2017.

Steve Horton

Enjoyed my Winter Solstice experience with James. Weather was variable but had 3 very different locations.A first for me was taking shots with my wellies on in the water at Monsal Weir. The light was brilliant in the late afternoon at Curbar Edge, I promised James a sunset, which happened in part, but as I say wonderful light. I picked up some useful hints, including the rotation of the polariser in live view modifies the histogram and you can see the image alter. I think Elements may have upgraded the spot healing brush as this turned out to be brilliant for removing unwanted people from the shots at Arbor Low

Anyone will benefit for a day out with James and his book is superbly done as well

Roger Willoughby

I attended James Grant workshop in the peak district. I would highly recommend the workshop. James really helped me in improving my photography skills.

Jorrit Eringa, Your Content Goes Here

Had a great workshop with James. I wanted to learn about filters, long exposures and water shots. I wasn’t disappointed! I got so much out of the day and James is a great tutor. Thanks James!
