Photography Simplified So You Can Focus On Your Creative Vision.

Are you after good photography workshops in Yorkshire? Look no further

All workshops NOW include a FREE 'Simple Lightroom Workflow Guide' eBook'

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 your photographic needs by including your individual photographic wishes in my workshops.

Subjects covered will include:
  • Setting the correct 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 at one or two locations.
  • Aperture, exposure, composition, ND and ND graduated filters and much more are explained throughout the day in simple non-teccie speak to encompass your specific needs.
  • A maximum of 5 guests so you can benefit from maximum individual attention while we explore the Yorkshire Dales countryside epitomised by 'Emmerdale' and 'The Dales'
  • Tell me what you want to learn and it will be built into the workshop if possible. We are photography courses in Yorkshire 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!"

The aim of these photography courses are for YOU to learn more about your camera and take away a greater knowledge of your photography along with more confidence about how to capture that moment, all in the safe hands of Dorcas who is dedicated to helping your improve your skills and who has photographed this region for many years.
