Course Dates

Landscape Photography Workshop in Lathkill Dale

Saturday April 9 – 10.00am to 6.00pm. Places cost £99.00 each. 

This course will be limited to just four photographers – so everyone will receive plenty of individual attention and have their questions answered. Please contact us if you would like a booking form.

This one day workshop is being held in Lathkill Dale, a beautiful limestone valley in the heart of the Peak District. Spring is one of the best times of year to see it, when the early flowers carpet the floor of the woodlands and the leaves on the trees are just starting to open.

The dale (most of which is a National Nature Reserve) has a wide range of subjects for us photographers – from the numerous weirs used to manage the water levels on the river, to Lead mining remains photographed on a Peak District landscape photography course. Photo © Chris Jameswaterfalls, woodlands, caves and impressive limestone cliffs. It has also been the scene of industrial activity for hundreds of years, and the remains of the two largest lead mines are today a Scheduled Monument for their significance. One of them still has the parts of a large steam engine house standing, while the visible remains of most of the other features have been made more attractive for photography by being reclaimed and softened by nature during the 170 years since mining here finished.

Peak District Landscape Photography in the Spring

Saturday May 7th – 10.00am to 5.00pm. £99.00 per person. 

2 places still available.

There will be only four photographers on this intermediate level landscape photography course which has been timed to capture some of the Peak District‘s woodlands in springtime when they are looking their best. One of the features of this course is that all the locations which we may visit are very accessible – no more than a few hundred yards from where we can park our cars. The walking is also very easy (with one small exception which is optional anyway).

Please contact us to request a booking form, or if you need any further information about this course.

Photo © Chris JamesWe will spend the first part of the day in woods not far from Matlock photographing bluebells and other spring wild flowers, as well as the impressive ruined steam engine house of a former lead mine.

Here’s what our client Stuart said after a previous year’s course: “many thanks for a brilliant and enjoyable workshop last Saturday near Birchover. Your knowledge of the environment in Derbyshire is mind blowing and I know the rest of the group also thought so.
I’m very happy with most of the photo’s I’ve taken thanks to your advice and the pub food was excellent.”

We are able to park right by the edge of the woods, so very little walking is required, and it is also quite flat. There is only one steep slope (which often has some of the best bluebells – see the photo above), but it is optional whether or not you decide to climb it, as there will be plenty of other bluebells to choose from!
