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 with your camera, in the wonderful surroundings of Upper Swaledale, for those who enjoy photography and would like to improve their knowledge and skills, and take control of the creative process.

Typical Itinerary 

One to one or small group sessions (up to three people) allow us to tune the day to your specific needs and objectives, and go "off-piste" whenever the occasion demands, but topics typically cover include: 

  • Use of the camera controls - aperture, shutter speed, focus & ISO - from both a technical and creative perspective  
  • How to frame and compose images 
  • How post-processing is used to develop the final image

After meeting at The Old School Muker and establishing the aims for the day we'll visit 3-4 locations (chosen dependent on the time of year and the conditions) each offering the opportunity to practice different aspects of photography. Afterwards we'll head back to The Old School to review and discuss the images taken.

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


Workshops take place through-out the year and usually take place on a Wednesday or Thursday. Other days may be available on request.
