Residential Workshop

Autumn Beauty In The Lakes

3rd to 8th November 2019 - From £995 per person

Join myself and Stuart McGlennon to explore the stunning and picturesque Lake District during peak Autumn colour - a paradise for Landscape Photography enthusiasts. You can be assured you’re in good hands where you will benefit from the detailed knowledge of two multi award-winning Landscape Photographers.

The Workshop is limited to 7 participants across two tutors to ensure you get a generous amount of dedicated tuition time.

Our base will be at the wonderful Wallthwaite Farmhouse, which sits close to the magnificent Blencathra and just a 10 minute drive from Keswick.

We will meet Sunday evening on the 3rd November, with tuition beginning on Monday at Sunrise running until Thursday evening, with everyone leaving on Friday morning. Accommodation will be provided on a self-catering basis. Breakfast and snacks will be provided across all days although you are free to bring/purchase your own food, there is a local Booth’s supermarket in Keswick 10-15 minutes drive away. It’s most likely we’ll eat out a couple of evenings though this can be decided between the group at the time.

There are 6 bedrooms in the farmhouse, 4 of which can be purchased as single occupancy, the remaining two are twin rooms. Self-catering allows the group to be flexible with coming and going depending on the weather - no two days (or even two hours!) are the same in the Lake District, so being able to best take advantage of changing conditions is crucial.
