WILD CAMP HIGH UP IN THE MOUNTAINS 

Meet at 12:00
At Threlkeld

Price: £250 per person (Deposit £100)

Join me for a 3-days of wild camping in the beautiful and picturesque Lake District where steep, large mountains dominate stretches of shorelines, home to England’s longest and deepest lakes.

This challenging but rewarding workshop will see you push your photography boundaries, camping high in the mountains to capture scenes at sunrise and sunset that most will never witness. This is why mountain photography is my favourite kind of photography.

You don’t need to be ultra-fit to walk up the mountains and wild camp, but it’s by no means easy either. You should be prepared for around a 3 mile walk up with over 2000ft of ascent, if not more, carrying up to 20kg in your bag. This however is part of the fun and allure, it becomes more than photography, it becomes an experience, an adventure and if the light comes, the effort is rewarded and you’ll wonder why you never done this before.

In terms of camping, it’s not that much different in terms of hardship than camping on a site. You are just rewarded with much better views high in the mountains! We will only need to think about extra’s like taking enough food & water for the trip and ensuring we are equipped for the weather.

We will meet on the Friday in Threlkeld to head up to Blencathra for our first night. We will camp on the top near Sharp Edge and hopefully capture a stunning sunrise looking down the edge.

The next day will be a slightly smaller affair if everyone is feeling slightly tired, this could be Cat Bells which overlooks the fantastic Derwent Water. If people feel super energetic though we could look at Helvellyn or Lingmell which both have awesome opportunities.

During the day we may find some waterfalls or other low down photography spots or we may choose to chill out in a cafe, this totally depends on the mood of the group! The main aim is the camping with the focus being on sunset and sunrise.

Throughout the workshop we will look at techniques such as focusing, use of filters vs exposure blending, composition, working with the light and more. However, being an experience based workshop we will also look at how to get up mountains, best practices, how to and where to pitch and wild camping etiquette.

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 workshop is tailored around you as much as possible and I strive to give each of you the most attention I can to help you achieve what you wish to. At the end of the course, 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.

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 weekend for any questions and my focus will be on ensuring you have the best day possible.

Loan kit can be provided for this trip if you are without yourself. This includes tent, sleeping mat and sleeping bag. Please let me know before the course. There is a £200 deposit on any kit to cover any mis-use or damages within your control. This will be refunded at the end of the course. Please note, the tent that is provided is based on sharing with one or more workshop members. It is a large, top-of-the-range mountain tent with plenty of room. You are welcome to use your own wild camping gear, particularly a tent if you prefer to have privacy but the tent must be up to the job of with standing mountain conditions. Please email me before booking so we can try and determine if the tent is suitable. We must bear in mind that the more tents we have, the harder it may become to find a pitch big enough to accommodate tents.

Please also note, if the weather turns for the worst, we may need to rethink our options and head down to a hostel or cheap B&B. This rarely happens but we are dictated by the weather. This will not be included in the price but your safety is always my first and main concern. We will still go out regardless for sunrise and sunset and hopefully be up high where possible.
