Join me on the 1st September for a packed day of photographing the gritstone edge’s and the surrounding areas.

The Dark Peak is famously known for its long, sweeping gritstone edges with dramatic views over cliff edges. However, as impressive as these gritstone edges are, most offer easy access and you can get close-to-the-edge dramatic shots with relative ease and safety,

The gritstone edges run in an horseshoe, through to what is technically the White Peak if you go by the OS maps. They start high up the Derwent Valley at Derwent Edge, passing down to Bamford Edge, Stanage Edge, Burbage Rocks North and South, Froggatt Edge, Curbar Edge, Gardom’s Edge and finishes at Birchen Edge.

As you can imagine, such a great variety of edge’s gives way to great photographic opportunities. While we won’t visit every single edge on the day, we will visit a few, probably ending with a sunset on Curbar Edge or Stanage Edge.

During the day, depending on the weather, we may divert to somewhere like Wyming Brook or Padley Gorge to photograph flowing water to make the most of the day as the edge’s will look their best in the later evening later. With a bit of luck there may still be some heather hanging around depending how the season falls in 2018.

We will meet to do a meet and greet with myself and the other photographers at 12:00 before discussing the final plans for the day.

We will break for food around 16:00 and if time allows, look at our images on a laptop to discuss basic processing techniques within Adobe Lightroom. The day will conclude after sunset around 20:00.

Throughout the day we will look at techniques such as focusing, use of filters vs exposure blending, composition, working with the light and more.

I am more than happy to discuss other more advanced techniques on 1-2-1 basis as well as to the group, depending on what is beneficial.

The day is tailored around you as much as possible and I strive to give each of you on the course for that day the best day possible. At the end of the day, you will have hopefully learnt new techniques and taken away some imagery you will be proud of. I am a friendly and relaxed tutor and I welcome you to keep in touch with me after the course to ask me any questions you may have looked over on the day.

There will be a maximum group size of 4 meaning there will be plenty of 1-2-1 time. I will be on hand throughout the day for any questions and my focus will be on ensuring you have the best day possible.
