Our Lake District photography workshops give you the chance to explore the UK’s most popular national park in Autumn when it is looking at its very best. During the tour, you will visit some classic locations, along with some less known hidden treasures.
Famous for its picturesque scenery, the Lake District offers amazing views in all directions, and you will be visiting at a time of year when the trees are turning beautiful shades of orange and yellows and reds. Your workshop leader will be professional photographer Tony Higginson who spends a lot of time in and around the Lakes and as you can see in the images below, he likes to create original compositions often including trees as a focal point. Using a wide range of techniques, he will show you how to get the best out of this magical place whether it be a minimalist long exposure at the waters edge or an abstract take on a classic view. Your imagination will be fired and the new skills you learn will help you to become a better landscape photographer.
For many years writers, poets, artists and photographers have been drawn to the beauty of the lakes, and it is no wonder why. Home to Englands highest mountain (Scafell Pike) its deepest lake (Wastwater) and its longest body of water (Windermere), the Lake District is also home to red squirrels and Golden Eagles and has ancient woodlands full of lichens and mosses.
Just some of the places you will be stopping at will include Blea tarn, Derwentwater, Buttermere, Windermere, Rydalwater and the slate mines near Holme Fell where you will be encouraged to explore and see the landscape in a new way. If you have visited before, you will understand the appeal of the place, and if you are thinking of attending one of our Lake District photography workshops, you will be guaranteed to fall in love with the place.
