Course Contents

No matter what your interest or level in photography, there is something for everyone on this workshop and is a good opportunity to learn how to shoot great waterfall images. We will guide you through the correct camera settings to make the most of the beautiful surroundings, covering techniques such as; long exposures, using filters, image composition as well as focusing techniques to ensure you get pin sharp images. The day will primarily be spent exploring the waterfalls across Wensleydale (see full address at the bottom of this page), however, we may travel further depending on the light and weather conditions.

Fitness: Most of the locations involve relatively short walks, but some of the locations will require a walk along uneven tracks and up uneven paths. Because of this, a moderate to high level of fitness will be required on this course.

Depending on the weather and light, we aim to visit several locations that have been specifically chosen for spectacular photography.

Please note that in the event of severe weather the locations may have to be altered at the last minute.

If you would like to borrow any cameras or lenses for this course, please get in contact with us at [email protected] and we will do our best to bring it along. We require at least one weeks notice for any requests.

Please note that you will have to pay for parking at some of the locations, most of the parking will be in National Trust car parks. We will endeavor to stop at a local cafe or restaurant for lunch, however, please bring a packed lunch and drink with you if this is preferred.

Yorkshire Waterfalls

A truly worthwhile day visiting some spectacular waterfalls and learning from Neil on photographing these. The help and ideas offered were invaluable. The range of sites visited provided fantastic opportunities to put the ideas presented into practice. The group discussion was as usual extremely helpful and overall this is a day to be highly recommended regardless of your level of experience.
