Spring Landscapes in the Yorkshire Dales - Waterfalls Workshop

Saturday April 27th 2019 - One Day Workshop

Join me for a full day of landscape photography in the stunning Yorkshire Dales this April, fully escorted in our 4x4 vehicle. We'll spend an entire day shooting Spring scenes in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, with an emphasis on capturing many of the wonderful waterfalls of this area. 

Shooting in a small group (MAX 4) will give us the opportunity to explore the region in detail while allowing us to adapt the itinerary according to the light/weather conditions.

Your day will begin with a morning drive into the Yorkshire Dales (around 8am), where we will be heading deep into the landscape.

Alongside shooting valleys, rivers and waterfalls, we will be hoping to shoot the Dales under a carpet of Spring flowers.

The focus on this trip will be working with long exposure techniques to shoot many of the wonderful waterfalls of the Dales. A small group travelling in one vehicle will be enable us to stop as frequently as photographic opportunities arise.

ND filters and polarising filters are advised. These will assist with slowing down your shutter speed and reducing reflections and water surface glare. 


Aside from dramatic waterfalls, the areas that we will be visiting offer a huge range of photographic subjects to explore, from meandering rivers to beautiful valleys and quaint villages. We'll be heading specifically towards the waterfalls of Wensleydale on this outing. 


This is an ideal opportunity to shoot stunning scenes and to experiment with camera settings to achieve the most desirable results. I'll be on hand to offer help as often as you need it, while encouraging you to create your own style of images.

My workshops are a great way to spend quality time in the landscape with like minded people who enjoy the photographic process.

Michael has a unique ability to take complicated subject matter and deliver it in a simple, passionate and infectious manner. He has taken me on a journey with his workshops from ‘extreme novice’ that was absolutely clueless to a confident enthusiast. I will be eternally grateful for all of Michael’s efforts in going the extra mile throughout my learning journey. He is a credit to his profession and he sets the standards for the rest of his industry to follow. Oh, and he is a thoroughly likeable chap too!

Great weekend away and I’m really pleased with my photographs! Thanks for a fantastic workshop, everything was first class, including the hotel, the food and the weather! I really enjoyed learning about different ways to compose my photos for a more professional feel. The workshop was well planned and was extremely informative and interesting. The fact that Michael kept a close eye on everybody's progress was an extra bonus. Thanks Michael

Both myself and my husband have been friends of Michael's for many years now during which time we have been on numerous photography trips with him! 

We have thoroughly enjoyed every single trip from the Lake District, Paris, Budapest but my absolute favourite was the trip to Finland, we may not have been lucky enough to see the Northern Lights but what a fantastic adventure it turned out to be!! Each trip has been made extra special with the fabulous group of people that we have had the pleasure of making friends with, aside from that there is of course the excellent opportunity to take some amazing photographs of simply stunning scenery and architecture. The trips are always well organised and thoroughly thought through from beginning to end, as well as coming away with some truly amazing photos you will for sure meet some lovely people and make fantastic memories......

I  attended my first camera course as a complete beginner, I didn’t even know how to turn the camera on! The initial course was perfect for me, very well explained throughout and left me wanting to know more. Michael and the team are brilliant teachers, they are all very patient and we have a lot of laughs along the way. Since learning how to use my camera I have progressed on to landscape workshops and now class myself as being very confident with my kit. I’ve joined Michael on many occassions and would definitely recommend these workshops!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first photography holiday to Budapest.  It was a beautiful city with plenty of opportunities to take fabulous photos.  Having Michael and Scott on hand to help you create that perfect photo and to give you advice was so valuable. It was a great group of people and a fantastic experience. Thank you!

I had a great time in London with plenty of opportunities to photograph architecture and try my hand at street photography. The London skyline after dark is something special.  Michael is knowledgeable and enthusiastic and readily on hand to give assistance and feedback throughout the trip.
