The Dales at its Finest
Malham and the surrounding area is simply stunning – from its massive “cove” to its expansive “tarn”, and everything in between, it’s a landscape photographer’s dream come true.
Opportunities to photograph a wide range of subjects, including:-
- a huge lake
All with guidance from pro-photographer Ade Wilson to help demonstrate technical and creative landscape skills, and be on hand to help with all of your questions througout the day.
Creative and Lots of Fresh Air!
Today is all about:-
- beautiful locations
- composing great landscapes
- curiosity and discovery
- seeing like a photographer,
- understanding where to put things in a photo
- watching and learning from a landscape pro
- answering any of your questions
We’ll also have time for individual help – so please do bring along any questions and we’ll do what we can to answer them for you.
Useful things to know beforehand
To get the most out of the day, knowing a few things about your camera in advance will really help – including:-
- How to select Aperture Priority (or Manual)
- How to change Exposure Compensation
- How to change White Balance
- How to put your camera on a tripod correctly
- How to change ISO
All of these are great skills to learn, so a fantastic investment in your time. We will teach you how to use them – just great knowing where to find them on the camera in advance.
Who is it for?
This is a workshop for BEGINNERS and EXPERIENCED photographers, as everyone will enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the area.
We’ll take you around the stunning limestone Malham area of the Yorkshire Dales, just 1-hour drive from Leeds – meeting at nearby GARGRAVE at 10:00, which will have our cameras in hand by 11AM
From there we’ll see many* these great locations:-
- Janet’s Foss
- Gordale Scar
- Malham Cove
- Malham Tarn
- Malham Rakes
* we’ll visit as many as time allows, depending on the pace of the day.
The minimum equipment is:-
- A camera and lens(es)
- Fully charged batteries
- Empty memory cards – back up your old photos first
- Warm clothing
- Walking boots – in case of mud and rocks
- Snacks and drinks
Recommended optional equipment
- Tripod – strongly recommended
- filters – polariser, ND filters, ND Grad filters
- cable release
What happens on the day?
The plan is to enjoy a leisurely day at many locations, the walking is “light” and mostly on the level – so any level of fitness should be fine.
Refreshments and toilets are sparse in the area – there is a public toilet at Malham Car Park and usually a sandwich and coffee van at Gordale Scar – so we do recommend bringing along snacks and drinks to keep you going.
Our endpoint will be at sunset above Malham at Malham Rakes – the exact finish time will depend on the weather, but should you need to leave earlier please just let us know – it’s not a problem at all.
Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment
