SNOWDONIA MASTERCLASS

Saturday 6th October - Saturday 13th October 2018

- 6 Places Only -

 

Join Karl Mortimer and I on a week long (7 night / 6 day) photographic masterclass situated right next to the stunning beauty of Snowdonia, on the doorstep of one of the most impressive slate quarries in the country and a stones’ throw from the varied coastline of Anglesey. Photography shall take place, weather permitting, from Sunday 7th to Friday 12th October inclusive.

We will be staying in a luxury 8 bedroom chapel, recently converted, that sports tall windows with stunning views of the local mountains, modern amenities to keep us entertained during any downtime, including table tennis and fussball tables, and a sauna to ease any aching limbs. This property has been voted one of the best in the country and we are lucky to secure the booking.

Each participant shall have their own double or twin room (en-suite) on a single occupancy basis and the price of the workshop includes all breakfasts and evening meals (up to 3 x meals out and 4 x homecooked meals (please indicate any dietary requirements when booking. Sorry, Alcohol is excluded)).

 

 

As a general rule we’ll be avoiding most of the roadside honeypot locations and exploring deeper into the heart of Snowdonia, so participants are expected to be reasonably mobile, however, that doesn’t mean you have to be super fit either. This is a workshop that will suit most people. As we have 6 days together there will be opportunity for rest and relaxation, during which we can turn our attention to processing (we will have a 5K 27” iMac with us to run Lightroom post-processing) as well as offering general critique sessions. We’ll also set out a number of projects for you to shoot during the week in addition to you shooting in your regular style, in order to help you broaden your artistic horizons. There will be a combination of sunrise shoots, sunset shoots, high level photographic walks, visits to impressive Cwm’s, raging mountain rivers, varied autumnal woodland, and exposed coastline. This is really a workshop that should tick every box.
