Waterfalls Workshop

Do You Want To Get More From Your Pictures Or Learn How To 'Freeze' Flowing Water?

If you answered yes to the question above, the waterfalls workshop is the choice for you.

Held at a range of locations across the Yorkshire Dales, the waterfalls workshop has been designed to cater for photographers at all levels of skills and abilities.

A typical workshop will begin with an introductory briefing at the chosen start point, where an opportunity will be provided for you to ask any questions and enjoy refreshments before heading to the first location.

Once at the waterfall of choice, you will have the opportunity to setup your equipment & soak in your surroundings (no pun intended) before the workshop begins. At this point, your workshop guide will answer any questions, help with camera settings & composition and advise on techniques where appropriate. 

Depending on the location chosen for the workshop, there is often an opportunity to fine tune your skills and techniques across multiple cascades as the workshop moves between different locations.

Each workshop lasts around 2 hours and will be fully guided by experienced photographers to offer the client the highest quality of guidance and tuition.

At the end of the workshop, there will be another opportunity to enjoy refreshments & all participants will be given the opportunity to debrief and feedback with things they have learnt and what they have enjoyed during the session.
