Landscape Photography Workshops in Upper Swaledale

Upper Swaledale is a landscape photographer's dream location. High fells, wild flower meadows, waterfalls, countless field barns, miles and miles of dry stone walls, the remains of old lead workings and more, all easily accessible by car or on foot.  It's the ideal location to improve your photography skills or simply enjoy a day out with a camera. 

One to One Workshops 

An informal and practical day out with your camera for photographers of all levels, looking to improve their photography skills and to explore Upper Swaledale. 


One to one workshops are tuned to the specific aims of each participant(s), but might include:  

  • Camera controls - aperture, shutter speed, focus & ISO - from both a technical and creative perspective  
  • Compositional approaches and techniques  
  • Development of the final image using post processing tools. 

During the day we'll visit a number of locations in Upper Swaledale each offering the opportunity to practice different aspects of photography. Towards the end of the day we'll head back to The Old School to review and discuss the images taken and  explore how post processing tool such as Lightroom can be used to develop the final image. 

The day will be theory light and hands-on heavy, informal and hopefully fun!
