Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October 2019 – North York Moors
Perhaps the most magical season for photographing woodland, autumn offers beautiful scenes of colour, texture and detail. Early October is great for colourful bracken, berries and species such as rowan & silver birch. We’ll immerse ourselves in the tranquillity and character of the very same fantastic woodlands that have shaped my own photography. I’d love to share my passion and experience to give you the confidence to find, explore and capture woodland with your own unique vision – leaving you prepared for the peak of autumn and the seasons beyond.
With a small group of only 4 participants, we’ll have plenty of time to discuss visualising, thought process, composition and post-processing. The two days will leave you feeling inspired and enriched with a fresh perspective on photography and woodland.

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.
I cannot think of a better and more passionate individual than Simon who has a great personality. Anyone who is looking to go and learn more about woodland photography, you must book with Simon. You will leave with confidence and a fresh outlook on this special area of photography.
We’ll be based at this superb country house in the south west of the national park. The location gives us a terrific location from which to explore the North York Moors and somewhere comfortable and welcoming for breakfast, post-processing and your evening meal on the 5th.
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.

The balance of the workshop price is due 6 weeks prior to the workshop date. 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.
