Purely Photography

Don't forget - Swaledale Landscape Photography Workshops are free and free with every purchased course .
  • Would you like to be more creative with your photography?
  • Have you got a DSLR/digital camera?
  • Are you often disappointed with your photographs?
  • Would you like to come off Automatic?

By sharing my experiences as a professional landscape photographer and photography trainer, I will improve your photographic skills.

Remember, every Professional Photographer was once an Amateur and every Amateur was once a Beginner.

How many landscape photography magazines do you buy in a year?

Imagine, investing one day, one day only, in that year in a fabulous location such as the Yorkshire Dales, to learn those techniques that you would learn in a year.

Imagine being able to fast track your technique in a day

Imagine feeling confident at the end of the day to produce images that could go into those magazines.

I will support you by including your individual photographic wishes in my workshops.

Subjects covered will include:
  • Setting the correct exposure/exposure
  • White Balance and ISO
  • Metering Modes
  • RAW vs JPEG
  • Depth of Fields
  • How to read a histogram
  • Composition and the Rule of Thirds
  • Use of ND and ND Graduated Filters
In just one day......

  • You will capture moments that will be around for ever and ever.
  • You'll see that problem solving with lots of practice in the field creates a solid photography technique for the rest of your photography days. The key to these workshops is giving you time.
  • Aperture, exposure, composition, ND and ND graduated filters and much more are explained throughout the day in simple non-teccie speak.
  • A maximum of 4 guests so you can benefit from maximum individual attention/look after while we explore the Yorkshire Dales countryside epitomised by 'Emmerdale' and 'The Dales'
  • Locations are a priority not classrooms
  • It's your day as well to relax, chat, have fun, take great photos with like minded people
  • I do process images but as little as possible and very rarely use HDR.

Quite a few of my guests have gone on to gain ARPS and LRPS qualifications with the Royal Photographic Society.

What People Are Saying
Jen said "Dorcas is a gem. She's very talented, personable, patient and encouraging. She was able to analyze my level of skill in an instant, and she was able to improve my abilities tremendously in just one day. But with each subsequent day of shooting, I continued to improve my skills. Her level of skill is considerable, so even if you're an intermediate like me, you will still learn a great deal. I came from the States to shoot in the Yorkshire dales. Honestly, I had no idea if Dorcas would be a good photography teacher or not. I didn't know anyone with first-hand knowledge of her abilities. I'd had both good and disappointing experiences with teachers in the past. But she was a perfect fit because she is both so knowledgable and personable. The Swaledale/Malham split that she planned worked out very well. It was a lovely, memorable trip. Thank you, Dorcas, for helping me create such beautiful images!"
