A very warm welcome to ‘Landscape Inspired’: A Yorkshire landscape photography training company offering workshops in the most beautiful places across the North of England
My central mission is to inspire client’s conceptual and technical landscape photography development, through enthusiastic, professional, mentoring that proactively inspires enthusiasm. I have over 20 years of landscape photography and 8 years of qualified teaching experience to offer, this coupled with many book and article publications, ensures that you can be confident of the very best in technical and creative guidance. My friendly outgoing nature and deep love and respect for the environment ensures that you will be in the very best of hands on the workshops.
I offer different lengths of workshop to suit your needs. The day courses focus on particular locations of photographic inertest. The weekend courses develop this theme, but the added time enables a more considered in-depth approach. In addition there are also taster sessions that are designed to focus attention around a particular location or natural event, please see the workshop section for more details.

The workshop will concentrate on delivering the optimum environment for your individual learning. This is achieved by primarily concentrating on ‘in the field’ one to one tuition, but will use group work when appropriate to the individual's development. (Group talks, safety, kit). Group sizes are kept small, (under six people depending on workshop) to maintain the high standard of tuition.
Pre- Location Planning: there will be a pre workshop questionnaire which will help me ascertain your particular learning styles; it will enable me to establish your abilities range and to stimulate your pre workshop development.
On location: I will condense the key elements for learning inspirational landscape photography and use the time in the field to develop what is needed for a deeper understanding.
Topics covered: (Dependant on workshop participants needs)
I would also recommend you bring small prints of your work (no bigger than A4) along with books, magazines and literature to inspire debate. Thinking and evaluation is a major part of developing good emotive work that reaches the widest target audience.
Off Location: It is critically important for learning to seriously plan and consider the pre and post location evaluations. Great images develop from good ideas and for this reason we will place emphasis during the workshop on the planning and evaluation of your images. (Note: this is primarily reserved for weekend workshops due to time limitations).
Post Workshop Feedback: After the workshop, I encourage you to join the online community to reinforce and expand what has been learned. Post discussion topics give and receive critical feedback on work produced on location. Post articles, podcasts, tutorials, that demonstrate inspirational learning.
