Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey, November 2013

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey, November 2013

Well what an end to our 2013 workshop season! Throughout the year we seem to have been very lucky with the weather and today was no exception. The forecast thankfully wasn’t totally right and we had a fabulous overcast day for our woodland and moving water shots. Our morning meeting was at the fantastic Tea […]

Workshop Report: Ribblehead and Twiselton Scar End, September 2013

Workshop Report: Ribblehead and Twiselton Scar End, September 2013

With Armageddon predicted on the weather forecast for the Sunday it was with great relief that the Saturday was looking pretty clear for us at Ribblehead and Twisleton Scar. Thankfully as we drove up in the morning, it was spot on, the light was crisp and clear, and that feeling that autumn is just creeping […]

Working With Autumn Light

Working With Autumn Light

Officially running from September 22nd till December 20th, autumn is a truly exciting time for landscape photography. Like spring, during the autumn season our surroundings change dramatically and it’s a great time to venture out to those ancient woodlands and sweeping Yorkshire valleys, to capture the glorious colour. Each year I have found autumn to be […]

Workshop Report: Malham July 2013

Workshop Report: Malham July 2013

Hot hot hot was the predicted forecast… and the hottest day of the year so far was delivered! The drive over to Malham was just fantastic, with clear views right over the Dales. We met as usual at the Lister Arms for the initial meeting to go through a few camera settings and a slideshow […]

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey May 2013

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey May 2013

The week prior to the workshop was spent with an eagle eye on the weather forecast! This went from heavy rain all day, to light rain all day, back to heavy rain all day. In preparation we went to the local sports shop to pick up a job lot of umbrellas, which prompted some unusual […]

Workshop Report: Aysgarth April 2013

Workshop Report: Aysgarth April 2013

  It was with the greatest regret that we had to cancel the very first workshop of 2013 to Aysgarth due to what could only be described as a huge amount of snow. It was the end of March and could not have been predicted, however we were able to reschedule for the weekend just […]

Yorkshire Coast Photography Part Two – Robin Hood’s Bay

Yorkshire Coast Photography Part Two – Robin Hood’s Bay

Located within the North York Moors National Park just 5 miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay is a gem for any photographer any time of year. The town has been an important fishing village from the 1500s and is a maze of tiny streets, which was used by […]

2 photographers, same place, 2 very different images

2 photographers, same place, 2 very different images

With nearly everyone having some form of camera, be it professional or on a phone, you might expect that every image has been taken. This is so utterly and fantastically untrue! and what I love most about photography. Mark and I have enjoyed many outings together around Yorkshire to find locations for our workshops and each time […]

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey November 2012

Workshop Report: Bolton Abbey November 2012

Well what a great workshop had by all this weekend at Bolton Abbey and Strid Wood. The weather behaved itself for the most part despite what the forecasts were telling us. The group met with the usual hospitality of the Tea Cottage at Bolton Abbey, and enjoyed teas and coffee whilst Sam and Mark gave […]

Workshop Report: Ribblehead and Twisleton Scar End September 2012

Workshop Report: Ribblehead and Twisleton Scar End September 2012

As ever the weather was up to its unpredictable behavior as it has been all summer as we watched with bated breath in the run up to last weekends workshop at Ribblehead. It turned out that we were lucky (and relieved) to see that Saturday was to be the only clear day in-between rain. This forecast was […]
