landscapes of snowdonia
Snowdonia mountain landscape photography workshop
This challenging single-day workshop takes us in to the heart of Snowdonia to photograph the volcanic and glacial landscapes of Snowdonia from the surrounding valleys and strategic vantage points. We also take a creative photographic look at man’s industrial influence on the natural landscapes of Snowdonia.
The workshop explores some dramatic locations, while informing participants on subjects such as landscape composition, pre-planning landscape photography sessions, working with water and how to make series of images from a location.
The day starts with a short instructional presentation covering creative and compositional considerations, followed by the core creative/practical content with rotating one-to-one tuition. At the end of the session there is the chance to compare notes and look at some landscape specific post-processing on the laptop.
The level of complexity and detail is modified suit the requirements of the participants enrolled.
- How to plan a successful outdoor photoshoot
- Making the best of your photography gear for landscape photography
- Understanding light in the landscape
- Simplifying complex landscapes
- Creating depth and flow in landscape photography

Snowdonia landscape photography workshops are held at various dramatic locations through western Snowdonia. Exact locations vary depending on weather and group fitness levels, but expect to visit ancient woodland, mountain passes, mountain lakes and streams and even a disused slate quarry.
