Event description

Description

Join Harrison Cameras, Olympus Ambassador Phil Norton and Olumpus UK for a Landscape Photography workshop in the stunning Peak District.

Location:
We will be based around the Hathersage area of the Peak District not far from Sheffield, which gives us access to many places, including Higger Tor and Wyming Brook for water falls. Higger Tor offers stunning views from high locations over the Peak District and the Hope Valley with compositions that will capture the essence and rugged beauty of the area. Wyming Brook has many possibilities for flowing water with small but dramatic waterfalls. Time and light will dictate which locations and which order we visit them, although we hope to include both.

Access and Fitness
Easy/Moderate-Access to Higger Tor is easy for average fitness, with short walks and steep but short inclines. Access to Wyming Brook is easy with a short and moderately steep walk back.

Equipment.
Olympus Body, Wide Angle lens (7-14 is ideal), Moderate Zoom (12-40 or similar), spare batteries and plenty of Memory Card storage are advised. A cable release is suggested, along with a good sturdy tripod. If you have filters available please bring them, ND, Graduated ND, Polarisers.

Clothing
Warm clothing is essential. September should be mild although the Peak District can get cold in a breeze even on a mild day, especially towards sunset. Layers are advised, along with a waterproof coat. Sturdy waterproof walking shoes or boots, and Wellington Boots for Wyming Brook will be a good idea. And please bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated.



About Phil Norton

My first introduction to photography was as a student at Hull University where I studied Spatial Design, and photography was part of the creative process. It was all 35mm film with manual Minolta cameras. My first camera of my own was an Olympus OM10 and OM40.

Starting a new job after University, and a family, gave little time for photography but eventually the bug took hold again. With the advent of digital it was a new world, I sold all my darkroom gear and got my first digital camera, a Canon EOS 350D. I quickly moved on to Full Frame with the Canon 5Di/ii/iii and L lenses.

Recently I started using Olympus again, with the m4/3 bodies it was like coming home. I now use a couple of bodies and the Pro lenses alongside Canon. Other than an introduction at University I am completely self taught.

My landscape images focus mainly around the stunning scenery in North of England, The Peak District, Moors and Dales of Yorkshire, Lake District and the Coast. I have a passion for the coast, I adore everything about it, the sea, the air and atmosphere, and I try in each and every image I capture to convey the beauty, and the drama of the great outdoors. I enjoy capturing images that show the beauty of our landscapes, and also it's raw dramatic power. I feel at home shooting a stunning sunset or a dark stormy day, both stir the soul.

I have been published in many photography magazines, won awards and competitions and I am a regular contributor to a number of online resources. I supply stock images which have been seen in many publications. The greatest satisfaction I get when I get home tired, and usually wet, is when I receive a thank you from someone who has one of my images on their wall.

I run Workshops over a wide range of locations and always try to inspire and encourage, successfully so I'm told. Workshops are small groups or 1 to 1 and focus on your ability with the aim to get you to the next level. I also teach Photoshop and Lightroom.
