Learn Landscape Photography

One to One Private Photography Tutoring

A great way to learn how to use your camera to take beautiful landscape photographs. A full day covering all aspects of landscape photography, tailored to your needs. From the basics of focus, exposure and composition to advanced ideas of personal style. You’ll also get the benefit of my knowledge of some of the best landscape around, in the Lake District, Snowdonia, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District or Cheshire.

You don’t need to worry about being intimidated, it doesn’t matter if you don’t even know how to turn on your camera. If you’re more advanced we can talk about where you want to take your photography and how to break through to a new level.

A typical one to one day includes:

  • Meet at the location and go through the basics, including explaining your camera controls and possibly setting it up for best results.

  • Control of focus and exposure and the factors affecting image sharpness

  • Use of ISO and white balance

  • RAW vs. JPEG

  • How to view the scene to find the subject and get the best composition

  • For more advanced photographers we'll spend more time on subject, composition and story-telling, helping you find your style

  • Practice these techniques by taking lots of shots

  • At the end of the day we'll upload your shots to the laptop and look at how you can use editing software to get the best out of your pictures.

The key to the day is listening to your needs and aspirations and taking it at your own pace. We’ll tailor the day based on the information you give me beforehand  and we’ll be flexible throughout. We’ll also consider your physical fitness and ability to get around, so being less mobile is not a problem.

  • Saturday and Sunday prices – £150 full day

  • Weekday prices – £130 full day

If you want to bring a friend or two I can accomodate up to four students on the day, at a cost of £40 per extra person.
