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.
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, a 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.

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.
