Peak District landscape photography workshops with Steve Walton
Join me for a weekend of landscape photography in the Peak District! My next Peak District photography workshop takes place on 9th-10th February 2019 and we are based at the delightful Castle Hotel in Castleton, ideally situated for all locations on the itinerary. The workshop will begin at 10.00am on Saturday 9th February and ends at 4.00pm on Sunday 10th February, the cost is £595 and the group is limited to six participants. Travel to locations on the workshop will be by car sharing.
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. This part of the Peak District is high moorland and reaches an altitude of around 2000′, 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
