Three Day Lake District Photography Workshop

Lake District Photography Course

Few locations can rival the Lake District for so many stunning locations in such a small area. This is my favourite workshop I run each year and in my opinion is based when the Lake District is looking at it’s best with lovely autumn colours meeting frosty mornings. It’s a breath-taking area with so many different locations to constantly shoot whatever the weather. We will be shooting mountainous scenery, lakes, woodlands and waterfalls. 

This Lake District Photography workshop is based at a luxury cottage at Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District. This photography workshop has been timed to hopefully get some of the nice autumn colours mixed with the first signs of winter.

We will be staying in a luxury self catering cottage so that we can come and go as we please and we are not restricted to meal times. I have used this accommodation for the past ten years and it works fantastic for this location and the layout and parking. Our accommodation is in a large house that is spread out with lots of available space and offers fantastic views of the surrounding Fells and is just a short walk into Ambleside. Breakfast and snacks are included in the price, lunch and evening meals are at participants own cost at local pubs. Accommodation will be in your own private room so you will not have to share bedrooms with other guests and there is no single supplement. The cottage is ideally located just a short walk from the center of Ambleside. This workshop is limited to around five to seven participants.

This two night Lake District Photography workshop will begin on Tuesday afternoon and finish on Thursday around lunch time.

All workshops are strictly limited in numbers so early booking is advisable.

A non refundable deposit of £150 is required to secure your place on this workshop any remaining balance is then due eight weeks before the workshop date or at the time of booking if sooner than eight weeks.
