“Chris is a patient and painstaking teacher who works hard to build up a good rapport with all his students. The class was small so people could get individual attention and I discovered a lot of things about my camera that I never even knew existed prior to the course but above all how to use them.  A thoroughly worthwhile experience.”  David.

Photo © Chris JamesOur landscape photography courses are all held at a range of beautiful locations in Derbyshire or on the border with Sheffield. We try to avoid the crowds at the most popular spots in favour of quieter areas, which are carefully chosen to be looking at their best at the particular time of year. One of the most popular subjects with clients is using long exposures with moving water, so we try to incorporate some waterfall photography into many of our courses. The other subjects available will depend on where the course is being held. At different times of the year, we take advantage of subjects such as bluebell woods in the spring, wild flower meadows in summer, purple moorland when the heather is in flower, or autumn colours – but we always take care to provide you with a range of great subject matter on all our courses. Sometimes we stay out until sunset time, so locations are then selected which allow us to take full advantage of “golden hour” and sunset light as well. You can see a selection of images taken by clients on our courses below. Continue reading
