Lake District Wedding Photography Workshop
Join me and our bride and groom models in the stunning Lake District for our two day wedding photography workshop. From our base near Keswick in the northern lakes, we’ll have access to some of the best scenery this stunning part of the country afford and so many opportunities to explore composition, lighting and creating amazing photographs and learning new techniques.
If the weather is suitable there’ll be the opportunity to head out at the end of the first day and shoot Astro images of the Milky Way in this dark sky location or light painting with long exposures and torches, even drones to add light to our images.
Attending a workshop isn’t just about creating stunning images, it’s the journey involved in creating these images and where and how we work out camera and flash settings so you can quickly and easily create similar images on a real wedding day.You’ll have access to our flashes and triggers for the off camera flash elements of the workshop (Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fuji). it is recommended you have your own flash for when we are shooting with on camera flash. We’ll also be using a variety of gels, grids and other modifiers from Magmod.
You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to guide and direct the models as we incorporate waterfalls, jetties and stunning mountain vistas in our photographs.
