Yorkshire Dales - Limestone Landscapes

£1275.00 - £300.00 Deposit

Please note, we have some slightly smaller rooms and places with these are £1,220.00, please enquire for availability!

The Yorkshire Dales landscape is shaped and defined by limestone features and it makes for a wonderful place to enjoy our photogrpahy. Some of the best limestone pavements in the country can be found here, typically set against a wonderful backdrop of rolling terrain, with Yorkshire's highest peaks often visible beyond.

Whilst it may be a rock lovers dream, there is far more to it than amazing geology, with a wonderful mixture of woodland, lone trees and smaller plants thriving here. We also are in close proximity to a selection of rivers and streams, complete with the odd spectacular waterfall. As well as this, an abundance of manmade attractions from times past, such as stone field barns, dry stone walls, quaint bridges and the remains of a once thriving mining industry.

We will be based in a comfortable hotel in Clapham, right on the doorstep of many of the most spectacular locations; but we will also venture further afield to make the most of the conditions we experience day to day and any autumn colour. In the evenings or during any less favourable weather, we hold strucuted post produciotn sessions, image reviews and hands on discussions around printing and photo book making.

With a maximum ratio of one tutor to four participants, there'll be plenty of time for us to work in depth together looking for potential for images in all types of location - not just the spectacular grand vistas but also the more intimate, abstract landscapes that can be made almost anywhere. We will look at how to make the most of conditions on the day ensuring any kind light can be exploited to its best advantage. We'll look at using a range of lenses and techniques, with an opportunity to work on bigger landscapes as well as more intimate scenes.

This is a Tripod Travels workshop - running in conjunction with my good friend and super photographer Lizzie Shepherd. Alex and I have thoroughly enjoyed working together for several years now and I’ve included a link to Lizzie’s website here. If you'd like to see a few testimonials from previous clients, then please look here.

What time will the workshop start and finish?

We will meet at the hotel at 3.30 on the Wednesday and will finish by 11.00 on the Sunday.

What level of photographer is this workshop for?

Suited for intermediate photographers and above. With a small group of eight, with two tutors and three days to work with, there will be plenty of opportunity to work with everyone on a 1-2-1 basis.

How fit do I need to be?

Many locations involve a short walk but there will be the odd steeper section as well as the possibility of walking for two or three miles - reasonably good fitness would be an advantage as well as the confidence to walk on uneven terrain and rocky limestone pavement.

Where will we be staying?

At a comfortable and newly refurbished hotel in the lovely village of Clapham
