Why City Locations are Great for Learning

Why offer landscape photography workshops in both natural landscape and city environments? The city contains all the same visual problems as the landscape; creating the three-dimensional quality of light, form, texture and spatial distance. Qualities much easier seen, then taught on well defined, angular buildings than in the subtle complexity and confusion of the landscape. Second, the landscape is very weather dependent, which is unpredictable, requiring a lot of waiting time. Indeed, the landscape may not be a picture at all without perfect weather conditions. All this conspires to waste a great deal of the landscape workshops time; time better spent learning Photoshop retouching.

Panoramic Heads and PTGui Stitching Software

All my current work is now taken with a panoramic head, shooting multiple rows with a Nikon D800E camera and either a Sigma 50mm or 85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lenses only, then raw converted in Nikon Capture NX-D software followed by stitching with PTGui, panoramic image stitching software and Photoshop retouching. The landscape workshops do not require you to use panoramic heads at all, however, if you wish to learn this additional panoramic and PTGui workflow as part of the landscape workshops, I am very happy to cover this subject. Panoramic heads give a perspective which is very natural looking in wide-angle photos, while preserving the incredible quality of the Sigma ART series lenses.

Landscape Photography Workshops – Learn Three Subjects

Florence, Italy

Landscape Photography Previsualization

Photography Previsualization is the ability to imagine the landscape in front of you as a finished print. I teach you how to ask all the questions you now ask during editing after shooting, to asking them before shooting. This leads to far less photographs taken, but vastly higher quality in the ones you do take. Previsualization gives you clarity and purpose.

Digital Landscape Photography

Landscape Photography is collecting all the digital assets you require to create the previsualized image you want to create in Photoshop. Digital Landscape Photography is not about creating the final image ‘in camera’. I teach you how to shoot digital assets with very specific purposes for technical perfection and artistic assets for aesthetic value.

Photoshop Retouching

Photoshop Retouching creates the final image, not the camera. In Photoshop we composite the assets into a single, technically perfect image then create a three-dimensional illusion. This creates a solid foundation for the final creative overlay that creates your final artistic statement personal to you. Photoshop retouching is about illusion and creativity.

Customized, One-To-One, Landscape Photography Workshops for All

If your time is limited and you want maximum improvement in the shortest time, then you can’t seriously learn in large groups – one to one tuition is personal service: A better financial investment – you learn more knowledge, consistent knowledge and knowledge without gaps, all in a short time at your own speed; while seeing the quality improvements instantly. Landscape workshops are taught with a patient demonstrate, practice, document approach starting at the beginning; taking photographs. Landscape workshops then take you step-by-step through Photoshop retouching with four easy to learn ‘books’, as described in the tutorials on this website. The priority of the landscape workshops is first to teach you the knowledge, then make sure you can repeat that knowledge alone after the landscape workshops finish.

The landscape workshops are customized to your needs, so welcome all levels of experience from basic to advanced, learning what you need at the speed you need. What you know, we move over, what you don’t know, we concentrate on. This meticulous, holistic and personal approach to your learning will provide you with a quality education; personal care and attention impossible in group workshops. More important than the level of experience you begin at, is having a passion to learn because I have a real passion for teaching those that have a passion to learn, no matter what level. Just send me an email and we can design a landscape workshop to meet your needs and level of experience.

Landscape workshops have a natural progression from my demonstrating at the beginning of the week, to you doing all the hands-on work by the end of the week, the best way to learn fast. Time is allocated for revision and we take as many images as possible. The workshops structure is designed to prepare you for working alone after the landscape workshops finish, but follow-up advice is always available afterwards. Due to the one-to-one tuition, only enough time is available each year, to teach about twenty-four private landscape workshops – so please reserve your dates early. All landscape photography workshops are taught by David Osborn in person, no ‘stand-in’ tutors.

Landscape Photography Workshops – Three Landscape Solutions

Dresden, Germany

Workshop 1 – Landscape Photography Workshops at Your Home. 11 Days

Creative landscape photography workshops brought to your home, freeing you from the wasted time and pain of the travelling. This allows you to stay in contact with your business for those urgent day to day needs and meetings as you require. The photography workshops brought to your home overseas are the standard workshop syllabus or can be customized to your needs by placing even more emphasis on photography or Photoshop retouching as you require.

Workshop 2 – ‘Travel With You’ Photography Workshops. 11 Days

Travel with you to a third location, landscape photography workshops ‘on the road’. Combine stress free time off work, the adventure of photographing somewhere new while learning at the same time and returning with portfolio images; the perfect balance of a travel photography holiday and educational workshop. This allows us to make good portfolio quality photography as we can hold the workshops in some of the most beautiful locations found in Europe.

Workshops Include – Three Portfolio Days Free Worth £1,000 +

Landscape photography workshops not held in the UK, include three extra days, free of charge and called ‘Portfolio Shooting Days’. Days used for landscape photography only; not Photoshop. Extra time to get great images. You gain the three extra days of workshop time all free and great images; I gain new photography to keep my website fresh and up to date. All without putting the landscape photography workshops teaching time schedule at risk.

Workshop 3 – UK Landscape Photography Workshops, Wales. 8 Days

Landscape photography workshops with peace and quiet, free of all the home and work distractions to concentrate on learning the complete workflow in the beautiful Welsh landscape. A relaxing, outdoor environment surrounded by green fields, mountains and the sound of sheep right outside the front door of the cottage. If you are in a stress-free, relaxed environment you are in the perfect mind-set to learn faster. However, the lack of structures plus a reliance on weather conditions, does make it a hard area to find high quality landscape photographs of portfolio standard. Other workshop options must be considered if portfolio quality landscape images are your workshop priority. Wales is ideally suited for learning the complete digital workflow only – not portfolio photography. Does not include 3 Portfolio Days.

Landscape Location & Accommodation

The landscape photography workshops are held in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, ten-minutes’ drive from the Welsh village of Betws-y-Coed and fifteen-minutes’ drive from the mountains. Landscape photography workshops are accommodated in beautiful, traditional self-catering holiday cottages normally running Saturday to Saturday. All have separate bedrooms, bathroom, a kitchen and dining room, electricity and heating but often no Wi-Fi connection. The UK landscape photography workshops are limited to one-to-one tuition as holiday cottages in general only have one double room and one single room. Contact me if more than one person wishes to attend the landscape workshops. I will see what accommodation I can arrange. Cottage’s cost about £350 week but vary depending on the time of year.

Bring, Included & Not Included

YOU NEED TO BRING: Your camera equipment and tripod, laptop if you prefer, but is not essential. Notebook, pens and portable hard drive for PC to keep all the workshop images. Warm, waterproof clothing and walking boots. Washing kit including personal washing towels. INCLUDED: Desktop computer with 27-inch Apple Cinema monitor running Windows and current version of Adobe Photoshop for teaching Photoshop. All local petrol and parking costs. All bedding, linen, heating, electricity, etc. is included with the cottage. NOT INCLUDED: The landscape workshops start and finish at the cottage. Travel to and from the cottage, the cottage rental and meals. Meals being bought in the local village pubs.

Landscape photography workshops are intended as private, one-to-one tuition. However, multiple people can attend the landscape photography workshops at very reduced prices per person. It is up to you to arrange all the additional members, I never put strangers together unless clearly stated as ‘group’ landscape photography workshops.

Over 35-Years Professional Photography Experience

I am in the small minority of landscape photography tutors with a long professional career as a working photographer before turning to teaching landscape photography workshops. My career began in London with Reuters News Agency as a hard news photographer, before turning to high end corporate and annual report work in the electronics industry; corporate work culminating with being chief project photographer for the £4 billion Heathrow Airport, London, Terminal 5 Construction Project. The largest construction project in Europe at the time, photographing more than 30,000 images to create an historical archive. A lifetime of real, professional quality knowledge and experience to pass onto you on my landscape workshops. Proven and tested knowledge that will change your photography.

“Revival. That’s what my photography needed. That’s what spending a week with David did. You can be good at your job, it’s another to teach – David is Excellent at Both”. Jerry Park Photographer, Nashville, USA. Read the landscape workshops reviews and let my clients answer your most important questions in their own words.

A small gallery of ‘Before & After’ Photoshop retouching examples illustrate the quality, creativity and possibilities the landscape workflow you learn, allows you to achieve. Photography and Photoshop are two sides of the same coin, I teach you both on one landscape workshop.

Landscape Photography Workshops – The Lifelong Benefits

Quality

PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE. I have been a photographer all my life as a hobby then as a profession. That’s an incredible 100,000 hours of real experience before even considering teaching you landscape photography. Few tutors have this volume of professional time, knowledge and landscape experience to teach you. CONSISTENT KNOWLEDGE. Learning from different sources creates very inconsistent knowledge and gaps that cause confusion and stall your progress. Learning the complete landscape workflow on one workshop provides a smooth transition from one skill to another; giving your knowledge consistency. AESTHETIC QUALITY. The landscape photography workshops teach a new holistic approach to landscape photography with technical perfection and high aesthetic quality. Learning how to create a good aesthetic quality transforms the artistic quality of your landscape images, making your work stand out.

Convenience

CONVENIENT WORKSHOPS. You dictate the time and place of the workshop allowing you to fit the workshops into your work and personal schedule; making it easy to keep in touch with the day-to-day demands of running your business and personal life. Customized landscape workshops fine tune what you learn. YOU CHOOSE THE DATES. The landscape photography workshops are booked-on-demand; with no preset dates. If your choice of preferred dates is not free, then I will offer you the nearest possible dates to your choice. I try to work around you, not you around the landscape photography workshops dates. AVAILABLE ALL YEAR. The landscape workshops are available all the year round. While Summer is more popular, other times of the year can offer great advantages. Far more moody weather for landscape photos and far less people around and great deals on travel and hotels offering great financial savings.

Good Financial Investment

SAVE TIME & MONEY. Paying for multiple landscape workshops adds up and leaves gaps in your knowledge. Paying for one comprehensive landscape workshop – covering everything you need to know in one go, sets up your landscape photography for life; making a much more cost-effective, one-off financial investment. YOU ACHIEVE MUCH MORE. The one to one tuition means learning what you want at the speed you want, making learning fast, efficient and relaxed. The landscape workshops concentrate on you only, with no need to wait for all the group to catch up. You invest all your precious time and money on new, relevant knowledge only. KNOWLEDGE INVESTMENT. Cameras are a very large financial investment but are at the end of the day, just tools. Without an investment in the knowledge to create good photography, the investment in the tools becomes a false investment. Knowledge takes years to accumulate.

“You can’t seriously learn in large groups – One to one tuition is personal training: A better financial investment – You learn more knowledge, in a shorter time and see quality improvements instantly”. – David Osborn, London.

Landscape Photography Workshops – Your Questions Answered

Highlands, Scotland

Can I really learn this in one week?

Yes. I break down the workflow into three subjects, then I break each subject down into steps. Each step very clear, precise and with a purpose. The benefit of using a methodical and structured digital workflow is that it gives you an efficient and repeatable structure to follow when making images. This gives you higher quality images every time, without restraining your creativity. For the very same reason, being structured, it makes teaching you all the digital workflow very easy, fast and efficient. Yes, you will be able to learn the digital workflow in a week that creates images like these, then you just need constant practice to improve and refine your skills.

How do you know, what you don’t know?

If you wish to find the weak or even missing links in a chain, begin with the first link, test it then move on to the next; until you get to the end. I take the same approach teaching the photography workshops. Start at the very beginning then move slowly and methodically through the whole photography workflow from camera to print in small, simple, easy step-by-step blocks. What you know we move on. What is weak or missing you learn. This methodical teaching process leaves no weak links or missing knowledge gaps in your workflow. Only a very few photography workshops take this methodical approach to workshop tuition; where the priority is your photography and Photoshop personal training.

What Photoshop skill level do I need before attending?

I can teach you Photoshop from zero, ideally, I ask a basic working knowledge of Photoshop; where to find the tools and Layers, Groups and Masks. This gives us a common language as a foundation to make the best use of our time; like knowing where everything is in your car – then I can teach you the driving skills. This saves us a lot of time. Play with Photoshop, get familiar with the layout and basic tools. Then we can invest more time in using the tools to then create images; not using the time to learn basic tools. Read my free tutorials, they will help you understand many concepts. They are good pre-workshop reading material that will allow you to pre-learn many of the workshop subjects.
