Why Choose Me?
I am an avid lover of the hills and mountains with a passion for capturing moments of time in these epic places. I want to share this passion with you and I will help you discover new places and improve your landscape photography at the same time. I offer both 1-2-1 tailored photography tuition and themed, small group landscape photography workshops. I love to cater for all abilities and I am just as happy leading a group down in the valleys as I am high up in the mountains, offering a real variety of experiences.
Join me on one of my Peak District photography workshops and you’ll be in the hands of the author of Peak District Through The Lens which has over 80 five-star reviews on Amazon. This ensures you will be in the best hands possible, with a guide who has a truly intimate knowledge of the area, helping you find the best compositions and the best light available on the day.
I am also passionate about a lot of other areas in the UK, with Snowdonia being another focus of mine, particularly since moving to North Wales. I have also been visiting the Isle of Skye for over a decade and been running workshops there regularly for over 5 years. I pride myself on having good knowledge and experience on locations on any of my workshops to allow us to extract the most from it.
I am a qualified Mountain Leader which means that you will be safe with me in the hills & mountains on the workshops. It also means I have passed my outdoor first-aid course as part of the requirement and can carry full insurance.
Are you looking for more adventure? Then why not join me on a wild camping workshop to really take your photography to the next level? We will spend a night in the hills or mountains allowing us to capture sights most will not see at sunset and sunrise. I offer these workshops in the Peak District, Snowdonia and the Lake District.
I use locations that I have visited before, so I have knowledge of the landscape and the compositions on offer. Not only does this mean you get experienced knowledge from a location it also means I very rarely take my own camera out as I’ll likely have the shot already, unless it is something exceptional. This leaves me with more time to teach you and you won’t feel like it’s a trip for my own portfolio.
On all workshops we will look at exploring subjects such as composition, camera technique, working with the light, use of filters, exposure blending, how to focus and much more. Transport to locations will be provided by me from a meeting place, so you can relax and take in the surroundings of the beautiful area. One of the biggest worries for people is naturally the weather. Don’t worry, unless it’s diabolical I will have locations in mind that we can use and adjust the itinerary if needed. If it is bad weather, there is still plenty of technical aspects to learn and you can still hone your compositional skills.

I also offer gift vouchers so your recipient can choose a course at their leisure. For any further enquiries including dates availability, please contact me using the contact form.

I personally learned so much from James about composition and focusing techniques that I cannot wait to on more of James workshops and develop my technique. His choice of location was excellent and his in depth knowledge of the area ensured we maximised our time at the right locations and the right times.
– Mark Worley
I attended James’ Skye workshop and can’t recommend James highly enough. He clearly loves the place and has a great knowledge of the locations as well as the best conditions and light to visit them in. He has a relaxed, patient approach and is very generous with his photographic knowledge and experience. I was particularly impressed that he rarely got his own camera out, he was focussed on helping us improve our skills rather than making his own shots.
– Derek Robison
This was my second trip with James, I have found him to be a gifted photographer who is prepared to share his knowledge with other aspiring photographers whatever their level of expertise.
– Norman Christie
I really enjoyed the day. I learnt a lot, got to explore some new places and came away with some nice shots.
I would definitely recommend his workshops. I feel so much more confident now.
– Laura Smith
I have been on two of James’ workshops, one to Saddleworth Moor and the other Crome Hill. Its nice to go on two workshops to confirm what you had been learning on the first and practice in-between. James is easy-going, making sure the four participants on the workshop get the help they need
– Tess Bramall
I recently spent three days on a workshop in the Peak District with James and had an awesome time. James is incredibly knowledgeable about landscape photography and the location itself. He is an excellent teacher, whose enthusiasm comes through. I learned a lot from James and will definitely be visiting the Peak District again.
