121 NORTH WALES PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
I lead 121 and customised small group photography workshops anywhere within North Wales. During the 121 workshops we typically visit 3 different locations and photograph a range of subjects which could include mountain scenery, waterfalls, glacial lakes, stunning beaches, lighthouses and ancient castles.
These workshops are flexible so we can head out early to photograph a beautiful sunrise, end the day with a sunset or just wander with the camera during normal daylight hours... it's your choice!
Please note these workshops can run on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.

How do I arrange the workshop date, start time and locations?
Once booked we'll arrange a mutually convenient date and discuss details of the day. If there's somewhere in particular you'd like to visit I can suggest suitable itineraries, if you've no preference then I'll provide a few itineraries for you to choose from. Regarding start times I'll arrange this around your preference of a sunrise shoot, sunset or if you prefer, normal daylight hours. Essentially the day is completely customised to suit you. Please note the workshop duration is typically 6hrs.
