Peak District Waterfalls and Woodlands in Autumn

Saturday, November 19th from 9.00am to 4.30pm. £99.00 per person. 

This intermediate level landscape photography course has been timed to take advantage of the wonderful colours of autumn, and will be held on the moors around Fox House (close to the border between Derbyshire and Sheffield). The course is also accessible by public transport.

The course is being held on November 19th, and features a whole day’s photography, starting just after sunrise at 9.00am and finishing after sunset at 4.30pm. 

This part of the Peak District offers a wonderful range of subjects – including waterfalls, colourful oak and birch woodlands, old millstone quarries, and natural gritstone outcrops. If we are lucky, we might well get some mist in the morning – this is one of the best spots in the Peak District for temperature inversions! For those interested in close-up and macro subjects, there should be plenty of interesting fungi at this time of year as well.

Photographing the Industrial Heritage of South Yorkshire

This course has now taken place, but you can see details of all our other courses over the coming months here.

Sunday May 29th, 10.30am to 6.30pm. Places cost £99.00 each.

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

The relics of our industrial past can be extremely photogenic, and this unique workshop in and around Elsecar (between Sheffield and Barnsley in South Yorkshire) will give you the chance to photograph some excellent examples. 

Most of the workshop will be spent at the former Hemingfield Colliery, where we will have exclusive access. This well preserved colliery was developed in the 1840s, and worked the Barnsley coal seam until 1920. From then until 1989, it worked as a pumping station to keep other local mines dry. The site was finally bought by the Friends of Hemingfield Colliery in 2014 – and apart from on open days – is not open to the public, so we are fortunate to be given exclusive access for this course. Part of the course fee will be going to help them conserve and protect the site. More details about the mine and its history can be seen here on their website.
