1. Who should go on these workshops?

Anyone who wants to learn more about photography! All the workshops are based outdoors, meaning a lot of the practical session is spent on your feet, with the Snowdonia workshops requiring a reasonable walking fitness and ability to walk on rough ground. The specific workshops are tailored at different ability ranges – from those new to digital photography owning a reasonable camera, through to advanced amateur photographers with digital SLR cameras, who are keen photographers and wish to learn more about specific styles or techniques in photography.

2. How do I know these workshops are any good?

That’s a really important question. There are a lot of photography workshops out there. The question you need to be asking is what I am going to learn? Too many workshops are actually just guided walks with one photographer on hand to answer questions to a group of ten or more. This set of workshops doesn’t work like that – we follow a structured learning plan based around your needs, where we start with a brief discussion and theory presentation then a series of creative exercises in some amazing locations, allowing a mix of guided personal exploration time and one-to-one tuition. Field sessions are generally followed by a chance to review images on-screen and look at relevant post-processing techniques in the latest professional image editing software. You will learn a lot!

3. How big are the groups?

Small. The group size is intentionally capped at five participants. Everybody’s needs are different, and small groups ensure everyone’s needs are met.

4. Your workshops are run outside – what if the weather is awful?

The mountain weather in North Wales is changeable to say the least. Although workshop dates are specfically chosen to fall in statistically drier months, perfect weather is something we can’t build into the plan with the pre-scheduled workshops. David makes every effort to run his workshops on the advertised date, and simply moves to more naturally sheltered locations and introduces techniques to allow photographic interest in most conditions. If however, the weather is simply not going to let us work outside with our expensive digital camera kit, an alternative date is arranged.

5. How do I book?

To secure a place your place on a given workshop, contact david by email or phone. Full payment is required before the event. Payment is accepted by PayPal or personal cheque and gift certificates can be sent out if you wish to make a present of a photography course.

All workshops are subject to minimum number of participants. In the case of numbers of participants being under two people for a given workshop, the full workshop fee will be refunded and/or alternative dates suggested. In case of adverse or unsafe weather conditions, the workshop will be moved to the first mutually convenient date.
