1-to-1 Landscape Photography Workshops in Upper Swaledale

For those who enjoy taking photographs looking to improve their photography skills and take control over the creative process. 


The workshops will take place in Upper Swaledale, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. With its waterfalls, iconic field barns, meandering paths and becks, wild-flower meadows and towering fells, Swaledale is truly a landscape photographers paradise. 

Typical Itinerary 

The workshop will be tuned to your existing skills and knowledge of photography, and your aims for the day, but will typically cover:

  • Camera controls - aperture, shutter speed, focus & ISO - from a technical and creative perspective  
  • Compositional techniques
  • Review of images and basic post-processing using Lightroom.

After meeting at The Old School Muker and establishing the aims for the day we'll visit 2-3 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! 

Please note: Though we can tailor the day to the participants, we can't do much about the weather or the steepness of the fells, and there may be some walking up and down muddy paths needed to reach the locations, so it's important to be reasonably fit and have decent wet weather gear and footwear. 


£200 for a full day workshop plus £50 for a second participant (note: food is not included so you may need a packed lunch).


Workshops are usually take place on a Thursday, but other days may be available on request.
