Description/Itinerary

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 various locations on the day depending on seasonal highlights, weather and wishes of the group for each spot.

  • Ramshaw Rocks

  • Hen Cloud

  • The Roaches

  • Padley Gorge

  • Bolehill Quarry

On this workshop Alan will guide you through:

  • focusing in low light

  • tonal range and shadow and highlight recognition

  • composition and designing the shot in the dark

  • long exposure, set-up and calculating the right amount of time

Itinerary

  • Meet at designated location

  • Workshop Briefing, preparation and set-up

  • Image shoot and reviews/tuition

  • Event finish

Difficulty/Equipment

Fitness Level Required - Moderate

This trip is rated as moderate, meaning that most people with average fitness should comfortably be able to deal with the 30min walks and frequent steps or gradients involved.

Experience Level - Beginner - Intermediate

  • The class and workshop are suitable for any level, including beginners. Ideally you will understand exposure, aperture and be shooting in Aperture Priority or Manual Exposure mode.

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

  • You will be provided an electronic guide beforehand to set your camera up in preparation and ensure you have everything required

Equipment for this workshop

What to bring:

  • Your camera, fully charged battery and spare battery if you have one.

  • Remote Release Cable to take/time shots without touching the camera.

  • Wide angle (10-24mm) is good for framing large vista’s and architecture. A zoom with any range between 24-200mm is good for isolating details at distance if required.

  • Tripod (essential) I can hire you one for the session at the cost of £10 but let me know in advance if you want one.

  • Sensible footwear – it can sometimes be muddy and sticky underfoot so walking boots or trainers with good grip are recommended.

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

  • Water, snacks or whatever you need for the event duration

  • Raincoats or equivalent – we might catch a shower!

If you have any specific questions regarding equipment please contact me directly or take a look at my recommended products page.
