Duration: 10.00am - 4.00pm
We offer one day workshops on landscape photography. Both John and Sylvia are on hand throughout the day to offer practical advice and tuition on aspects of exposure, metering, composition, lighting and filtration. You will learn what to look for in a good shot, with lots of practical advice on setting up the shot before you press the shutter.
We don’t just take you to a location and leave you to get on with it. We are there to help you enjoy your photography and have a better understanding of what makes a good image. You will learn to master the manual setting on your camera which will give you more confidence to raise the level of your photography from snapshots to competition winning entries, suitable for framing on your wall or for submission to magazines.
From beginner to enthusiast, you will find something here to improve your landscape photography as well as enjoying some of the picturesque locations in and around Swaledale.

Who are the workshops designed for?
This workshop is designed for the amateur landscape photographer or enthusiast wishing to improve or learn landscape photography techniques. We visit three or four locations in Swaledale where you will show you how to get the best out of the aperture settings, shutter speeds, composition, lighting and filtration to produce stunning landscapes images. Become more creative as you learn how to use your camera in manual mode. Learn how to read a histogram and use exposure compensation to enhance the dynamic range of your camera; when to use a tripod and how to use ND grad filters effectively. All this and more as you enjoy a day out in the Yorkshire Dales with John and Sylvia.
What do I need to know beforehand?
You should be familiar with the controls and menus of your digital camera, even if you are unsure how to use them properly. We recommended that you bring along your camera user manual if there are specific issues we need to deal with. We will give you practical advice on the different mode settings (P,A,S,M Av and Tv), metering, quality settings (RAW + JPEG) scene modes, ISO settings, White Balance and Exposure Compensation. Do not worry though if your camera does not have all of these features.
What gear do I need to bring with me?
“Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the above camera gear. We can advise you about camera gear that will suit your needs and we also have a spare filters, adaptors, tripods etc that we can loan you for the day.”
