Landscape Photography Lessons for Beginners in The Lake District



landscape photography lessons for beginners

Learn how to use your camera like a pro. You will also learn how to:
use 10 stop filters to shoot long exposure shots in the daytime.
Understand the exposure triangle
Rule of thirds
Train your eye to take better photos
And much more!!!

The course is based at The Old Post Office camp site, but if camping is not your thing, the Bridge Pub across the road from the site has great accommodation, food and drinks.

As we are close to Wasdale Head, a lot of time will be spent there as it was voted one of Britain's most scenic locations (see photo gallery for example).

The course is set over 4 hours, and once we have had a great time shooting, will retire to the Bridge Pub where we can discuss photography and look at the shots you've taken to give you feed back.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Transportation to the locations.

Loan of tripod, filters and in some cases lenses

Please note that accommodation and food and drink are not included in the course price

An excellent course for the photographer at any level. Although, the course notes state Intermediate/Advanced level, don't let that put you off as a beginner.
Frank has an excellent teaching style, that is relaxed and tailored to the skill of the individual.

I felt that the main importance of my time on the course was to have fun and take photographs, all the time learning through practice and example rather than being full of technical terms. Don't get me wrong, if you want techy terms he has techy terms.

I learned more in the time spent on the course, than reading the various photography magazines.

The weather didn't allow for night shooting, but the relevant techniques were taught using a 10 stop filter (see I learned something).

I would recommend this course, and try and stay at the pub, you'll not regret it.

Response from Vision Photography:

Thank you so much Des for your great review!!
Very pleased you enjoyed the course and you felt you benefited from my teachings.
Hope you stay in touch and fingers crossed we get a clear sky for some night shots.

Frank has an air about him that immediately puts you at ease. His knowledge of the subject and locations are excellent and his ability to adapt to the prevailing conditions was impressive - considering we had all the elements that could be thrown at us over the weekend workshop (and despite the weather preventing any night photography) I thorough enjoyed the experience, including the wonderful accommodation and food - I will be back!
