New for 2019. Join me on the 17th November to photograph something a little different in the Peak District. This workshop’s ultimate goal is to take you up high and photograph a sunset from the Wool Packs on the south side of Kinder Scout, Derbyshire’s highest point.
If you are looking for a workshop offering something little different then this is for you!
At the start of the day we will explore waterfalls around Kinder Scout, likely in Grindsbrook Clough before photographing other viewpoints which should look good in the November light throughout the day. We may visit Ringing Roger and Upper Tor and head over to the Wool Packs or head up via Crowden Clough and photograph Crowden Tower.
We will meet at 09:30 to do a meet and greet with myself and the other photographers. We will break for lunch around 12:30. During this time of year, the light is good throughout the day and great images will be able to be taken all day. Sunset is at around 16:30 with around an hours walking back from the Wool Packs.
This workshop is suited for all levels of photography but is especially great for those who want to explore some of our higher areas with a good working knowledge of their camera and have potentially previously been on one of my more traditional day workshops. This is a workshop about experiencing higher up places, the walking that comes with it and enjoying the scenery as much as the photography.
Please note, a good level of fitness is required as this is a hill walking day. The pace will be fairly slow and relaxed but the whole route is around 6 miles and in late autumn/winter could prove trickier for some. Please don’t let this put you off, if you have any concerns please feel free to get in touch.
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.
