Lake District wedding photography workshop 2015 : Wedding Photography training course
Early October we made our annual trip to Cumbria for our two Lake District wedding photography training course. Based in the northern lakes on the outskirts of Keswick we were ideally located for locations around Derwent Water, Buttermere, Thirlmere and Crummock Water. October is always a great month as autumn colours begin to show through and waterfalls are starting to gain strength.
Day one started with heavy rain forecast until lunchtime, this was an ideal opportunity to head over to Buttermere and work under the canopy of trees surrounding to create off camera flash images including brolly photographs. The morning was about exploring off camera flash in different locations whilst we incorporated the stunning backdrops of the mountains and fells before a brief pub lunch.
During the afternoon we headed towards Keswick to explore a number of small waterfalls, bridges and a jetty on the shores of Derwent before we finished off the day high on a cliff top with spectacular views overlooking Bassenthwaite and Derwent Water.
With a slightly better weather forecast for day two we again headed towards Buttermere using the famous Buttermere pines as a backdrop for our bride and groom photographs. The pub beckoned again for lunch before we made the steep ascent to a large waterfall and stunning mountain top location (steep ascent in our cars, most of our locations are no more than a few hundred yards from the car). Day two finished close to where we started at Thirlmere with Kelly and Mark on the beach and rocks.
During the two days we experienced, heavy rain, strong winds, bright sunshine and lots of sheep. Great fun and from the feedback afterwards a very positive learning experience for all attendees.
