Photography Workshops

If you are aiming to improve your landscape photography or spend focused quality time in the Lakes area with your camera then that is where I can help. I am offering a number of workshops that cater for individual needs and photography experience, and you don't need an expensive camera to do it. They are suitable for all ages and ability, even if you have just bought a camera and would like to know how to use it to it's potential.
