Sometimes a sensational sky is all you need for a great landscape image but when paired with a choice location the results can be breathtaking.
A collection of mysterious and enchanting woodland imagery that awakens the imagination.
Classic landscape images capturing the majesty of nature from afar.
Aerial photos taken with a drone or by flying in a small plane using a DSLR.
A collection of close-up or more cerebral images and intimate scenes.
I work with small groups or on a 121 basis helping you with all aspects of landscape photography catering to all levels of experience. Workshops are tailored to your needs within a given theme (eg. autumn) and location (eg. the Peak District) where I will look to apply and share with you any aspects of my approach, knowledge and technique used in the images you’ve seen me publish.
PLANNING AND FORECASTING
Although I will take care of these on the day, if there's interest then I will help you understand the process I go through when selecting locations and planning a shoot. A critical part of this is being able to predict and foresee the likely weather conditions on the day to give yourself the best chances of good light possible. I will give you my view on the best apps and tools to use for this and show you how to use them.
EXECUTION ON THE DAY
We will explore the entire lifecycle of making images in the moment, from basic technical aspects (if necessary) moving quickly to the core foundations such as composition and use of light. I will try to focus on unlocking your creativity, everyone is different, allowing you to express yourself through the landscape in front of us. There is no right or wrong answer, what's important is you feel happy with the photos you take and during the workshop I will work with you to overcome the barriers and difficulties that may have held you back. And most important of all, we 'll have some fun! It's rare a day out in the landscape doesn't leave you smiling and I'll make sure we keep a healthy balance between focussing on excellence and just enjoying the whole experience.
The often forgotten or avoided final third of the process, if there's time or a strong interest then we can discuss aspects of processing images either over lunch or during a portion of our time together (eg. over dinner in the evenings on residential workshops). Most of us love being outdoors but we shouldn't neglect finishing off the job. I'll share the techniques and software I use to help you spend the minimum time needed at the computer afterwards whilst making sure you do justice to the photos you have taken. Again, there are no right and wrongs here and I'll share the insights and techniques I've learnt along the way and I use when making all of my images.
