Spend a day surrounded by the stunning scenery of Cwm Idwal in the Snowdonia National Park with the chance to photograph the dramatic views of the Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges, the glacial lakes of Llyn Idwal and Llyn Ogwen and the impressive Ogwen Falls. The Snowdonia photography workshop begins at 10.00am and finishes at 4.00pm and is suitable for beginners or anyone looking to further develop their digital/landscape photography. Group numbers are deliberately kept small ensuring everyone gets the most from the day.

You'll learn how to make the most of your camera controls, how and when to use filters and how to improve your images through composition. There's also some 1-2-1 time for everybody during the day to cover any specific requirements you may have.

Payment can be made by Paypal (includes debit/credit cards), Bank Transfer or cheque.

To pay by bank transfer/cheque please contact me by clicking here to email me: or calling me on 0797 3281161. For PayPal or Debit/Credit card payment just choose your workshop from the drop-down menu below and select "Pay Now"

Snowdonia Group Workshops - more details:

Please be aware that this workshop involves some walking activity throughout the day which, whilst not strenuous, is on uneven paths/ground and includes some inclines so a reasonable level of fitness/mobility will be required. Unfortunately due to the nature of the terrain it would not be suitable for those with limited mobility.

What do you need to bring with you?

  • Camera/lenses/Spare memory card/batteries/tripod - A digital camera with "semi-automatic/manual" controls (Aperture and Shutter priority) is recommended to get the most from the course.
  • Filters (if you have them)
  • A packed lunch/snacks
  • The relevant user manual for your camera
  • Warm/waterproof clothing and suitable footwear - weather can be unpredictable all year round in Snowdonia.
  • A notepad and pen

What is NOT included in the Snowdonia workshop?

A packed lunch, accommodation, personal accident/equipment/cancellation insurance. I recommend you consider obtaining suitable personal insurance to cover both your equipment and travel.

What happens in bad weather?

I monitor weather forecasts and if conditions are predicted to be completely unsuitable, to ensure both your safety and enjoyment of the day, it may be necessary to cancel a workshop. I will endeavour to provide at least 24hrs notice, although this cannot always be guaranteed; you will be offered either a full refund or a place on a future course.

By booking you are confirming your acceptance of the "TERMS & CONDITIONS". (
