Dark Sky and Landscape Photography in The Lake District



Dark Skies and Landscape Photography

Learn how to photograph the night sky and improve your landscape photography. You will also learn how to use 10 stop filters to shoot long exposure shots in the daytime.

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.

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

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

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!
