One-day landscape photography workshops in Sussex and South East England in small groups.

Group workshops are held in a variety of locations across Sussex, on the coast, in the country (notably on the South Downs) and in urban environments, occasionally also in London.

During a workshop you will get help with both the technical and aesthetic side of photography. What camera settings to choose for landscape photography, where to focus to get the best results, how to use the histogram and why you need to use it, how to use graduated filters. How to create engaging and strong compositions, what lens to use to achieve specific effects, how to find the right perspective, how to work with light in different conditions and with different subject matter. You will get exhaustive answers to these and many other questions.

Landscape photography workshop Bosham in West Sussex

Group courses are NOT "lectures", you will always get individual attention. Whether you've just got your first DSLR or have been taking pictures for a while, and however modest or advanced your kit is, you're guaranteed to get just the advice you need and spend time in a friendly atmosphere with like-minded people. However, if you're just starting with photography and would like to learn how to use the camera in general, an individual photography training session might be actually more beneficial for you (read more about individual sessions).

Regarding your equipment, apart from the camera and lenses a tripod is indispensable, and a remote (cable or wireless) highly advisable.

Key facts:
  • groups of maximum 6 participants
  • 5 hours on location
  • I don't take my own pictures, so I can focus all my attention on you
  • my filter system is at your disposal during the session (available adapter diameters: 52, 67, 77 and 82mm, along with a set of additional step-up rings to cover most popular lens thread diameters)
  • cost: £60 per person
  • in case of foul weather the session will be rescheduled to another date convenient for everyone, or you'll be offered a place in another workshop or a refund
