All of the course locations are carefully chosen to take advantage of some of the most spectacular subject matter that is available at the particular time of year – waterfalls, wild flowers, heather moorland, autumn colours etc. Each course is limited to 6 persons, and places cost £85.00 each. Tripods and filters are available for you to borrow at no cost, if necessary.

These intermediate level courses are limited to just 4 people, with places costing £85.00 each. All courses run from 10.00am to 5.00pm and tripods and filters are available for you to borrow, if necessary.

Lovely waterfalls and abandoned millstones are enhanced by the colours, making for some great photo opportunities. This course is also accessible by public transport.

Our final landscape photography course of the year will be on December 2nd in a steep little valley near Matlock in Derbyshire. A superb series of waterfalls will allow us to practice long exposure techniques, and a number of derelict old mills provide a wide variety of different subject matter. The course runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm, so will also include some sunset photography if the weather conditions permit.
