Landscape Photography Courses, Portraits and Weddings

Learn landscape photography in the stunning surroundings of the Lake District National Park.

We offer a number of group and one to one photography courses and workshops to suit all levels of experience.

Get to know your camera courses start in the studio to cover skills and setup and then put this into practice in one of the lakeland beauty spots.

Weekend photography workshops cover specific areas to increase your knowledge and skills across a range of landscape subjects.

Photography walking courses take a day to have a guided walk at a stunning Lake District location where photography will be the main focus.

Visit the course overview to find out more.

For individual portrait photography, the studio is an ideal location with a choice of back drops and lighting. But of course you can choose a location of your choice.

A family portrait photography shoot can take place in the studio or at a location of your choice. Being based in the Lake District provides so many places to choose from for the location, perhaps walking in the fells or by a lake.

We know that photography is such an important part of your wedding day so take great care to work with you at every stage. With all packages we have pre-wedding consultation, a free engagement photo session, online access to select images in a password protected photo gallery and all selected images on disk.

Carmen, thank you for and wonderful day yesterday trying to teach me how to use my camera correctly. Spending so much of the day outdoors using the camera really suited me rather than being indoors doing lots of theory. I'm delighted with my photos which is due to your clear explanations and the way we discussed what has happening in the pictures to enable me to use the correct settings - you've certainly made me look differently at subjects. I'll be back for more courses. Thank you
from Trish

Would like to thank Carmen for a pleasant & enjoyable day yesterday. She had the task of trying to teach me how to use my camera properly, instead of pointing & pressing. She had patience and made a ' technical ' ( I'm techno phobic) topic interesting and easier (!!)for me. Highly recommend her & look forward to meeting her sometime with my camera & tripod in some local beauty spot. Thanks Carmen xx

Thank you, Carmen, for an excellent evening workshop. We found it both educative and enjoyable. Though we were already confident users of our DSLRs, you taught us several new and practically useful technical skills, taking us boldly into parts of our cameras’ menus where we had previously feared to tread. You also generously shared a number of really good creative tips about composition - we’re looking at landscapes rather differently as a result. And you made the whole evening fun. We hope we can do another of your workshops.

We went on an evening photography workshop with Carmen which was good fun and we learned lots. Recommended.
