“Phil made it so easy, I learnt more in three hours than I have in four years; can’t wait to put it into practice at home and to try the next workshop… thanks Phil.” J Bowie, Wiltshire.
Everyone can enjoy the Lake District and have fun with photography. Our full and half-day landscape photography workshops make both improving camera skills and landscape photography available to those of all ages, photo skill levels and fitness levels including those who are less mobile. They are especially popular with beginners, improvers and those who simply want to go home with better quality holiday photographs. The workshops are suitable for those with any type of compact, bridge or DSLR.
These are practical, hands–on workshops where Phil himself escorts you to easy to reach locations, tailored to meet the needs and interests of each group. Each workshop features either a full or half-day escorted excursion, driven by Phil if numbers allow. The workshops require some gentle walking, so guests should be comfortable covering distances of up to two miles per day (maximum) over fairly level terrain. The relaxed pace of the workshop gives plenty of time for refreshment and comfort stops and for Phil to ensure that everyone has lots of one-to-one guidance with their photography.
For those staying at Hermiston Guesthouse you’ll have the opportunity to relax and review your images before dinner with a coffee. Phil will show you how to use Photoshop to show you how to get the best out of each image, provide constructive feedback and answer any questions you may have.
“After a year of owning my camera and stuck on the auto setting, this workshop has given me the confidence to experiment. Phil ran the workshop depending on our own learning speed.” J Povey, Hampshire.
