After the success of the January’s Winter Woodland Workshop, I’ve decided to add one last date to experience the joy and character of woodland in winter. This is a great opportunity to learn about photography in a challenging but very rewarding environment. It promises to be a great day to leave you feeling inspired and enriched with a fresh perspective on photography and composition. This workshop will help with your woodland photography during all seasons..
We’ll immerse ourselves in the very same self-discovered woodlands that have shaped my photography over the past few years. I’d love to share my passion and give you the confidence to find, explore and capture these atmospheric surroundings in your own way.
B&B accommodation available for £70
Sunday 24th March
Lunch included. Breakfast included if staying at the B&B
Moderate (rough terrain and some short hikes)
"The time I spent on your workshop last weekend may well prove to be one of the most profitable, rewarding and long-lasting investments I have made."
"Simon has really nailed the workshop format with a completely client focused experience."
Join me in the North York Moors where we’ll start the day before sunrise by heading to one of my favourite locations then after an introduction to my woodland workflow, we’ll return to the B&B (if participants have stayed there the night before). After a hearty breakfast, we’ll head out again to put into practice the ideas and processes we’ve discussed throughout the morning. A late lunch will be followed by a hot drink and post-processing session.
Transportation to all photography locations during the workshop
Tuition & guidance from Simon
In depth discussion on composition and thought process
Image critique on location
Adobe Lightroom image editing session
Breakfast if staying at the B&B the night before the workshop
Excludes: Insurance, travel to the accommodation/starting point.
There are a lot of folk out there that can take great photos, finding someone that can express their creative process in such a clear and effective manner is a much rarer feat, Simon has that skill! A wonderful workshop leaving me buzzing with encouragement to look through my lens in a different light.
Fitness & Experience
Although we won’t be walking long distances, having a good level of fitness will be an advantage on this workshop. We will be walking off the beaten path, on rough terrain and through woodland foliage. The ground could be loose, boggy or steep. If you are of ill health or suffer any physical ailments, this is probably not the right workshop for you. If in doubt, please get in touch. This workshop caters for photographers of all skill levels and experience but, to get the most out of the week, you will ideally be comfortable with the technical use of your camera.
Simon’s skill as a photographer and passion for woodland was clear from the outset. He is also adept at sharing his thought process in a way that makes you think for yourself rather than simple instruction. In short, it was a very enjoyable and enlightening day. Many thanks.
Accommodation isn’t included in the workshop price but it’s highly recommended to give us a superb base from which to explore and somewhere to return to for breakfast and our post-processing. I can arrange your stay for £70 for a single occupancy en-suite room including breakfast. Please let me know if you’d like a room and I will arrange this for you after you’ve confirmed your place on the workshop.
I’ll also be suggesting that we meet at the B&B for a 4 course dinner the night before. This has proven to be a great way to get to know each other, chat about photography and set a relaxed tone for the day ahead. Dinner is £25.
Total price for dinner, bed, breakfast and workshop would be £295 + evening drinks.
Simon's a lover of all things outdoors but has a particular affinity with woodland where he enjoys the therapy, wildlife, atmosphere and tackling the compositional challenges. You'll usually find Simon way off the beaten track with photography companion and best friend, Meg.

Should this final payment fail to reach us by the date specified, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the deposit. If a booking is made 6 weeks or less prior to the departure date then the full amount is payable at the time of booking.
Any cancellation by you made in the 6 week period prior to the trip will mean that we retain the total cost of the workshop unless your place is sold on. If this should happen we will retain only the deposit and the balance will be refunded.
The receipt of a deposit does not imply acceptance of a booking. We will confirm our acceptance of your booking in writing by email, and it is at the time we send out this confirmation that a contract comes into existence between us.
We reserve the right to alter or cancel any workshop. Should an alteration or cancellation become necessary for reasons other than force majeure (see clause 6 below), we will notify you and you will then have the choice of accepting the change, taking an alternative workshop (and where this is of a lower price we will refund the difference), or withdrawing from the contract and accepting a refund of all monies paid to us.
We can accept no responsibility for cancellation of workshops due to Force Majeure. Force majeure is unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control including fire, flood or adverse weather conditions. Landscape photographers work in all weathers and it will be unusual for weather to necessitate a cancellation. However, if a workshop has to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, we will offer you a free place on an alternative workshop.
In the unlikely event of the specified tutor being unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control, another tour leader will be provided. If this is not possible, then the workshop will be cancelled and the provisions of clause 5 will come into effect.
We do not accept responsibility or liability for death, bodily injury or illness caused to you or any other person included on the booking form, unless arising from our negligence.
By paying the deposit, you are agreeing to accept all the above conditions. The person who pays the deposit for a group booking does so on behalf of all the individuals included on it, so that all are bound by the booking conditions.
