Llangollen Locations Photography Workshop (June 28th 2024)



Join me on June 17th to explore locations in and around Llangollen, North Wales. This little gem of an area is a place I have the pleasure to call home and I truly think it is an overlooked area for photography. It offers some stunning locations in a small valley which such easy access. A lot of people would carry on down the A5 to Snowdonia (I was guilty of this too) but everyone who has done this workshop so far has said they can’t believe they had omitted the area for so long.

We have the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which is part of the World Heritage Site and is the highest canal aqueduct in the world and also the longest in the UK, a true feat of engineering. Just down the valley you also have the Traphont Viaduct at Cefn Mawr.

Just down the road you have the Panorama Walk of Trevor Rocks which looks over Castell Dinas Bran, both easy locations to visit with views from high up.

There’s other places such as Horseshoe Falls, the starting point of the World Heritage Site and the start of the Llangollen Canal as well as the nearby Velvet Hill and Chainbridge.

We will spend the day visiting these locations and hopefully more, making the most of the weather and light. All locations are relatively easy access although Castell Dinas Bran is a bit of a steep tug up though well pathed.

Throughout the day we will look at techniques such as focusing, using a tripod, use of filters vs exposure blending, composition, working with the light and more. This is largely photographic walk and as such, we will build techniques throughout the day and the aim is to put what we have learnt into practice for the sunset at the Trinnacle.

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. I have also created a Facebook client area where you can keep in touch, share your photos and keep in touch with other attendees from 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.
