North York Moors - Weekend Workshops

Since launching the weekend workshops back in 2018, they have become a firm favourite clients and it is easy to see why. They provide you with an ideal opportunity to have a short break in some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, learning new photography skills and forging lasting friendships. With all workshops limited to 4 clients then you can be sure that you are going to receive all of the tuition that you need.

The workshops start at 6pm on the Friday evening which allows you plenty of time to travel to your chosen locations and get settled into you accommodation if you have booked a stay for the weekend. On the first evening we will be out for sunset depending on the time of year, before switching our attention to photographing the night skies. Saturday will be a full day of finding compositions at sunrise, during the day, sunset and we will also be out for the night skies again. We will also have time to edit your photographs where hints and tips will be given on how to get the most of our Photoshop and Lightroom. Sunday is another action packed day, with more opportunities to work on your photography skills before the course finishes around 2pm

I have lived in close to the North York Moors for the last 12 years and have extensive knowledge of them, knowing where and when to visit specific places to maximise your photography enjoyment. The moors provide a stunning backdrop of any photograph as does the Yorkshire coast, with its rugged coastline and coastal villages. Once again there are amazingly dark skies across the moors making it an ideal location to practise and develop your dark skies knowledge, with the Milkyway, Constellations making great subjects. During the summer months, rare Noctilucent Clouds can been seen and in from September through until March, the Northern Lights are again a possibility.

The weekend workshops are priced at £200 per person and offer exceptional value for money. As previously mentioned, I limit all of my workshops to a maximum of 4 clients. There are 3 reasons for this this. Firstly, I want all of my clients to have a fantastic experience and leave on Sunday having learnt new skills, Any more than 4 clients and I don't believe this is possible. Secondly it allows us to visit locations where everyone can photograph safely and are not fighting to get the best compositions. Believe me I have seen groups of up of 12 people with one instructor and I do wonder what sort of an experience they are having. Finally, it allows us to travel all together in one car which not only adds to the camaraderie of the group and forms last friendships but it also lessens the environmental impact on the places that we visit. The workshop will be run from the market town of Stokesley which gives great access to the Moors and Coast.
