Stanton Moor Winter Landscapes Course

Saturday December 4th – 10.00 am to 5.30 pm. Only 1 place still available.

This course will be limited to just 4 photographers. Places cost £95.00 each. Please contact us to request a booking form, or if you need any further information about this course. 

This course will explore some of the wonderful photographic subjects around Stanton Moor, between Bakewell and Matlock in the Peak District. We will spend the first part of the day in one of the former sandstone quarries which surround the moor. Stanton Moor has been prized for its fine grained stone for centuries (the paving for Trafalgar Square came from here), and the quarry we will visit still retains plenty of interesting features from its industrial past – even though they have now been softened and reclaimed by nature.

Winter Landscapes in the White Peak

Saturday January 22nd – 10.00am to 5.00pm. £99.00 per person.

Fully booked.

This course is being held in one of the Peak District’s most beautiful valleys, which is also a National Nature Reserve. Lathkill Dale is beautiful at any time of year, but in winter the bare trees and abundant water give it a special stark quality which can produce beautiful images. The course will run until after sunset, so it will be a great chance to experience taking pictures in the low light conditions using long exposures.

This course will be limited to just four photographers – so everyone will receive plenty of individual attention and get their questions answered. It will also allow us to maintain social distancing.

Please contact us if you would like to be sent a booking form.

Sunset and Beyond – Low Light and Night Photography in the Peak District

Saturday March 19th – 5.00pm to midnight. Cost: £99.00 per person. 

Most photographers have tried to photograph a sunset at some point (many cameras even have a special “sunset” mode), but the results are often disappointing. On this course you’ll find out why this can happen, and learn some of the techniques that will make your sunset photos really come alive. Many of these same techniques also apply to twilight and night photography, and during this course, you will learn how and when to use them.

Modern digital cameras work extremely well in low light conditions, and have made night photography much easier and predictable than it used to be just a few years ago. So if you’ve ever wanted to try low light, night photography and “light painting“, this course will show you how to get started, and what fun it can be!

“It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly coloured than the day”. Vincent Van Gogh

It is being held at a very safe, rural location in the Derbyshire Peak District – which has relatively little light pollution and is ideally suited for sunset and night photography. With wide horizons, barns and trees and amazing old industrial buildings and chimneys silhouetted against the sky, this is one the prime locations in the whole of the Peak District for this type of photography. The course will begin over two hours before sunset (so we will be able to take full advantage of “golden hour” light), continue through “blue hour” after sunset, and into darkness proper – with the light of an almost full moon to help us.

There will be a maximum of only 5 photographers on the course. Places cost £99.00 each. Please contact us if you would like more information, or to request a booking form for this course. Numbers on this course are deliberately being kept low, and priority will be given to people who have already attended one of our landscape photography courses.
