James offers 1-2-1 and private small group photography workshops with tuition tailored to suit you. He runs these days in both the Peak District and Snowdonia. For the day, you will have James’ undivided attention where we will visit some of the best places the area has to offer.
By booking me for the Peak District, you will be in the hands of the author of Peak District Through The Lens, the 400-page photo location guidebook to the Peak District. This means you will have a tutor with intimate knowledge of the area, helping us plan the best locations for the particular time of year and weather conditions.
If you want to visit Snowdonia instead, I am also a regular visitor the National Park, visiting for over 10 years, learning the area inside/out, from low down easy access locations to high up mountain summits. We will still visit the best locations for the conditions and plan a day suited to how you want to learn.
Throughout the day, we will explore the Peak District or Snowdonia with the aim of returning with the best results possible. As each workshop is tailored, you will only be taught what you want to learn. We can look at basics such as composition and focusing through to more advanced techniques such as exposure blending, focus stacking and panoramic photography.
Remember this workshop is designed around you. Need help with something specific? Want to go to a certain location?
Want to photographic something specific? No problem, we will discuss this before the day. I will send you a questionnaire to allow me to plan the day for you. If you don’t have anything specific in mind, don’t worry either, I will choose locations that suit the time of year and your ability to ensure you get the most out of the day.
These workshops are also great to be tailored towards your physical requirements. I have previously ran workshops for those who are less mobile in the landscape and we can still get you to some great locations. Please just drop me an email to discuss and we can discuss what we can do and where we could go.
Each workshop is generally between 7 to 8 hours depending on the weather and light. The workshop will also include a introduction to post-processing during lunch. The workshops also run until sunset so please expect a late finish depending on the time of year.
If you would like to visit Snowdonia instead, this can be arranged at no extra cost. I can also offer bespoke 1-2-1 further afield such as the Lake District.
Prices are just £250 for the day. I run these workshops 7 days a week but weekdays are much more flexible and I will have dates often in the near future. If you would like a weekend, this can be arranged but as they are more popular and group workshops run more frequently there may be a wait for a date. Please get in touch to see what dates I have before booking. If you would like to bring someone with you, this is no problem and each extra person is just £50.
If you would like to discuss dates before booking, then please use the contact form to email me.
