Workshop details;

This Workshop is perfect for experimentation! We will be concentrating on contrast and composition. as this really is a varied subject matter, from wild flowers/plants to a stunning waterfall and the rugged backdrop of Gordale Scar. I will be encouraging participants to experiment with their own practice!
The Workshop begins in Malham village, where a short walk leads you through a magical, hidden woods. It really looks and feels like a secret garden with its overgrown plants, array of flowers and wildlife.

The smell of the Wild Garlic hits you as soon as you enter the woods and the river that runs through it, is home to various twisted and fallen trees, branches and logs. A tiny path leads right up to a stunning waterfall, aptly named ;Janet's Foss (after a fairy queen). It really is a gorgeous little place...perfect for some creative photography! If you are patient you may see the beautiful fluttering wagtail by the waterfall,( I have been lucky enough to capture it! ) It actually looks like a scene from a Disney film.

After a picnic Lunch, we will make our way towards the rather breathtaking 'Gordale Scar'. A complete contrast to the hidden woods. The rugged backdrop is a climbers and Photographers dream! The dramatic Gorge, is home to some stunning rock formation, simply perfect for a photographing texture and form. The view to the Gorge, is brilliant and so worth the walk to 'Gardale Scar'.


Get creative! Experiment with composition, texture and contrast. Enjoy the amazing surroundings! Although some walking is involved,its worth it!! The location is simply wonderful!

There is a wonderful little refreshment van, selling tea/coffee/ cakes etc... this is positioned on route to 'Gardale Scar' We may stop here on the way back!
