LAKE DISTRICT - WINTER IN WASDALE
Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March 2017 - SOLD OUT
Join me in Wasdale in the Lake District for 2 days in Winter to photograph popular locations as well as hidden treats, with the potential to venture further than other workshops dare to tread.
Lake District workshops are run on a weekend basis and include accommodation (The Bridge Inn, Nr. Wasdale) starting on Friday evening when we will meet and get to know each other. Party size is limited to three (3) so that I will be on hand to offer advice and share thoughts on composition and the landscape throughout. On the technical front it is expected that participants will know the basics of their chosen equipment but I do have knowledge of Canon, Sony and Fuji systems and limited knowledge of Nikon.
Given the topography of Wasdale, I don’t believe that early starts are worth it to catch sunrise, and so on this workshop, unless we are blessed with unusual conditions, we will miss sunrise and take a relatively early breakfast before heading out for the whole day where we will either visit numerous fairly easy to reach locations or elect to do a reasonable level fell walk, to an achievable summit/high level location. Although I will on occasion take the odd photograph myself, at all times I will be on hand to offer further advice on how to shoot in such environments and to answer or point out any safety concerns. Participants should expect to return to the car a couple of hours after sunset. If the weather does not look so favourable given the effort involved, we shall continue under workshops conditions at a lower location until sunset.
On the Saturday night we will aim to have a pub meal nearby or at the Inn (not included). We can also use this time to discuss our images from the day and perhaps do a little processing if appropriate.
Sunday follows the same format as Saturday before the day ends following sunset.
We shall adapt the workshop and the locations to suit the conditions and participants but for a rough idea of what to expect, here is a sample itinerary.
7.30am – Breakfast
8am – Depart Inn for first location
8.30-10am explore first location, look for alternative compositions, etc.
