Focus on Composition in the Lakes in Summer (26th May)


My workshops are aimed at any level of photographer who is looking to improve their photography.  Either beginners looking to understand the basics and improve, through to advanced photographers looking to find some great locations or rekindle their enthusiasm and inspiration.  The key aim of our time together is to have fun and enjoy being outdoors whilst leaving inspired to take photos that you want to hang on your wall

I enjoyed every minute of my workshop with Nigel. His passion, enthusiasm, and technical knowledge made for a great day, and I learnt a great deal from him. I would strongly recommend a workshop with Nigel...a great experience
— Steve Ball
Nigel’s passion for photography is inspiring and contagious! Throughout the day I increased my knowledge of composition, but the best bit for me was how Nigel helped me to hone my ability is visualise an image. If, like me you love photography and are looking to improve, then I can unreservedly recommend booking one of Nigel’s workshops. You won’t regret it!

Slow down and visualise the image before you take your camera out

I believe that if you want to improve your photography you need to be in the right mindset.  I will show you how I take less photos but end up with more keepers and photos to hang on the wall

In this workshop the main focus will be how to plan a composition. 

I will look at the 7 elements that have been successful for me over the years as outlined in this video

As we wonder through the landscape I will also chat to you about the visual aspects of photography.  

Once we have taken the photos we can review the photos together and understand how to get the most out of the image through post processing.  This area of photography is a important part of building a great image.
