Event description

Description

This year we have decided to base ourselves in the beautiful Grasmere valley, which was where Wordsworth wandered lonely as a cloud and wrote his poem about Daffodils. His romantic view of the world was inspired by the landscape around him.

The central area of The Lake District has such variety of locations that it can rival any location worldwide in our opinion.

With grassy fells rolling down to mirror-like lakes, fields lined with dry-stoned walls and white painted cottages dotting the hillsides there is so much potential that a weekend hardly seems long enough to do it justice.

We will steer away from Ambleside the bustling town at the heart of this area within the lakes.

Our focus will be on Grasmere, Rydal Water, Loughrigg Fell and The Langdales. The quiet of the lakes is our aim so that in the space we find you can create your own vision of this area of sublime beauty.

We are both very familiar with this area and can’t wait to share the quiet, still and mesmerising beauty of the lakes with you.

Whilst on location, we will be on hand throughout the workshop to support you with every aspect of your photography no matter what level of experience you have or what cameras you use. They will discuss lens choice, viewpoint and use of filters to help you capture the essence of the Lake District.

A highlight of the trip will be the image review sessions at the end of each day and you will be taking home a print of your best photograph to remind you of the exciting and inspirational weekend of photography in one of the UK's most beautiful and iconic National Parks.

The Workshop will not include strenuous and serious hiking and, therefore, should be within the capabilities of any reasonably fit people.
