New Lake District Courses Available Now

We are still in Sweden but have just received confirmation from the accommodation in the Lake District that all is well with our bookings.

The new courses will run in March, early May and September and be based in Eskdale. Stanley House will be our base and provide bed and breakfast in very comfortable surroundings. We stayed there in June while checking out locations and taking photos for the new book.

There will be a short welcome meeting on the Sunday evening. Then Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be full days of landscape photography. The course will finish at 4pm on the Wednesday giving time for travelling home.

We will concentrate on developing the artistic side of black and white landscape photography while helping with any technical needs. So, composition, exposure, use of light, structure in images, metering, histograms, bracketing, etc, will all be covered. See articles on use of digital cameras and landscape photography on the web site.

The cost is £550 including 3 nights bed and breakfast and they can be booked through the web site or direct with us.

We will use local pubs and cafes for lunch and evening meals. Not being tied to a base for meals means that we can venture further afield like Buttermere and Ravenglass. There are no fixed timings either, within reason. If the light is good we can continue taking photographs.

Really looking forward to them as we have some stunning locations lined up.hope you can join us still just 6 places per course and 2 tutors, Jan and myself.
