Description/Itinerary

Description

Landscape Photography

The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks, form a gritstone escarpment which marks the south-western edge of the Peak. Best viewed from the approach along the Leek road, they stand as a line of silent sentinels guarding the entrance to the Peak District, worn into fantastic shapes by the elements. 

The area is one of rock and heather which once belonged to the Swythamley Estate. Following the break up of this estate, the area including the Roaches and Hen Cloud (an area of 975 acres) was purchased in 1980 by the Peak District National Park Authority in order to protect this unique area and guarantee access for the public.

We will shoot at three locations on the day depending on seasonal highlights, weather and wishes of the group for each spot.

  • The workshop is suitable for any level, including beginners.

  • All participants receive 1-2-1 tuition and support on practical workshops so that tutoring can be tailored to the individuals needs and experience.

What to bring:

  • Battery Charger if attending more than one day

  • Tripod (essential) I can hire you one - the cost is £20 but let me know in advance if you want one.

  • A polarising filter is useful for removing glare and reflections but not essential

  • Graduated and Neutral Density Filters - useful for increasing exposure, dynamic range and doing longer exposures

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy, wet and sticky underfoot so walking boots or trainers with good grip are recommended and wellington boots for coastal workshops.

  • A large sandwich bag and an elastic band to wrap around your camera and lens if we have light rain

  • A kneeling mat or dustbin liner to put on the ground if you want to kneel or crouch down for ground level shots
