Outdoor Photography Meet-up


The outdoor photographers meet-up, camp-out and BBQ

Join Simon Baxter & Thomas Heaton for a photography meet-up like no other.

Simon and Tom got talking about how it’s a shame that they meet so few of their supportive followers. The conversation moved on to meet-ups and how it would be fun to have a get-together and chat about our shared passion. One thing led to another and we have booked a venue with a camping field, catering, and a marquee which we will turn in to a makeshift art gallery featuring your printed work! We’re now committed to hosting a unique and thoroughly enjoyable meet-up.

All creatives are welcome, from photographers to filmmakers, so if you enjoy the outdoors, come and meet with like-minded people, enjoy a BBQ, bring a print and have a great time.

We have limited numbers to 50, so be quick!

How it works

  • Saturday 17th September at Laskill, Helmsley, North Yorkshire
  • Book your ticket. £30pp if you’re not camping, £40pp if you are. Price includes BBQ. This is a not for profit event – the ticket price covers our costs.
  • If you’re camping you can bring a tent or your van. There aren’t any hook-ups, so ensure your batteries are charged.
  • If you’d like a more luxurious stay. you can book some on-site self-catering accommodation. Visit here and tell Mandy that you’re attending the photography meet-up.
  • Bring a print! It’s not essential, but we are asking everybody who attends to bring an A4 print of their work. We will display all prints in our make-shift gallery. There will be competitions, prizes, fun critiques and lots of opportunities to network, chat and discuss the joys of photography.
  • BYOB. We don’t have an alcohol license, so please feel free to bring your own alcohol and refreshments.
  • Parking and camping will be in the field opposite Laskill Country House.

The location

We’ll be meeting at the superb Laskill Country House in the south west of the North York Moors National Park. Mandy and her team will be taking care of the BBQ while we relax on the terrace which overlooks the fields and trees of the dale. A gathering of like-minded photographers in idyllic surroundings will be both inspiring and restorative.
