Saltburn by the Sea at Sunset

Saltburn by the Sea at Sunset

  One of the things we try to get across on our workshops is how great twilight can be for landscape photography.  As the light starts to fade at the end of the day and you’re starting to feel a bit cold (especially at this time of year) then there’s always an urge to pack […]

Waterfall Photography at Hull Pot

Waterfall Photography at Hull Pot

  Thanks to the magnificent Settle to Carlisle railway, parts of the western Yorkshire Dales are easily accessible by train, so heading out on a landscape photography shoot doesn’t necessarily mean driving, which is great for those of us that don’t particularly enjoy driving.  I’d been meaning to have a look at the area around […]

Workshop Report: Aysgarth and West Burton October 2013

Workshop Report: Aysgarth and West Burton October 2013

  The weather during the week had been somewhat changeable, with a couple of nice fine days and a couple of days of heavy rain, but the forecast for the Saturday of the workshop was for early showers fizzling out leaving a mostly fine but overcast day so we were optimistic of some great light […]

West Burton Revisited

West Burton Revisited

  During my Swaledale and Wensleydale shoot earlier in the summer I stayed with my sister and brother-in-law nor far from Aysgarth for a few days.  I has a quick trip out to take some photographs before dinner when I arrived and on my return I said to my sister “you’ll never guess where I’ve […]

Workshop Report: Malham August 2013

Workshop Report: Malham August 2013

    After last month’s blisteringly hot outing to Malham we were hoping for something a little cooler with more cloud interest in the sky this time, but were watching the weather forecast carefully in the week before the workshop, hoping we were going to miss out on the heavy rain and thunderstorms!  Fortunately, the […]

Workshop Report: Malham May 2013

Workshop Report: Malham May 2013

  We were glumly peering out of the window at pouring rain and howling winds on the Friday afternoon before the workshop, hoping that the weather forecast for the following day which was sunny, mild and with light winds was to be believed.  Fortunately Saturday morning arrived with pleasant weather as predicted – but we […]

Focus on Malham

Focus on Malham

  The landscape around Malham in the Yorkshire Dales provides a wealth of opportunities for the landscape photographer year round.  In this article we’ll look at some of the highlights that we cover in our Malham and Gordale Scar landscape photography workshop.   Janet’s Foss is a delightful waterfall tucked away in woodland just a […]

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey April 2013

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey April 2013

  Just a week after our delayed Aysgarth workshop we were setting off on the first of our spring workshops at Bolton Abbey and Strid Wood in Wharefdale, one of my favourite areas in the Yorkshire Dales.  We started the day as always with a chat about photography and the day ahead over tea and […]

Focus On Swaledale

Focus On Swaledale

A journey from Gunnerside up to Keld in Upper Swaledale provides so many great subjects for the landscape photographer.  In this article we’ll look at some of the highlights which we cover on our weekend workshop. Images of the geometric patterns of dry stone walls and lush green grass at Gunnerside are perhaps the most […]

Working with Winter Light

Working with Winter Light

  What a dreary time of year winter is! It’s still dark when we get up, the days are very short and it’s damp and cold, with huge heating bills to boot!  But hang on a minute – with such short days the best times for landscape photography, sunrise and sunset are at a more […]
