Peak District landscape photography workshops with Steve Walton
Join me for a day of landscape photography in the Peak District!
My next Peak District photography workshop takes place on 3rd October 2020 We will meet at The Station Cafe in Grindleford, the workshop will begin at 10.00am and conclude at 4pm. The cost of this one day workshop is £195. The group is limited to six participants.
Atmospheric Peak District Landscapes
The Peak District is a wonderful area for landscape photography at any time of the year. In winter, the area known as the Dark Peak beyond Hope the valley northwards takes on a more serious and often foreboding character. The successive massifs of Kinder Scout, Bleaklow, Black Hill and Saddleworth Moor are remote and desolate and in winter this can be a challenging environment for landscape photography. The peat groughs of these deserted moorlands contrasts with frost and snow and the dark millstone grit geology of ‘the edges’ becomes more defined. The weather systems in this area are fickle; mist and hill fog often blankets the higher ground so that expansive views are restricted and the challenge is to work with the prevailing light and weather conditions that will reward you with those dark and foreboding atmospheric landscape images of the Peak District.
Some moderate walking and a reasonable level of fitness is required to get to locations. Participants will need to have appropriate clothing and footwear to remain safe and comfortable during the workshop. Occasionally I’m asked what type of camera my clients should bring on a Wild Light Photography Workshops and Tours. The simple answer is any camera you like, be it film or digital! I personally use several different cameras for both my paid work and my personal projects, film and digital, and I would encourage you to bring whatever you feel is appropriate to you. I have used dozens of film and digital cameras during my career and I am familiar with current cameras for most manufacturers
