Photography Course in The Peak District

Guests staying at our Peak District properties, Hawkesmoor Barn, Robin Hood Cottage, Back Tor or Town Street Barn can now benefit from our partnership with World In Focus, an award winning photography training company that run workshops all year round. All workshops have dedicated tuition provided throughout by full-time photography professional, Simon Watkinson (ABIPP).

Simon provides first class tuition to all photographers who feel that they would benefit from professional guidance. Simon’s teaching style quickly creates a relaxed and fun learning environment, that really deliver results. Simon is a highly experienced photographer and teacher and is happy to teach any one interested in the craft – from beginners right the way through to advanced photographers.

You are guaranteed quality tuition, stunning locations and lots of fun whilst on a World In Focus Workshop!

Workshops are entirely bespoke, designed entirely around the needs and wishes of those on the course (whilst obviously taking into consideration the time of year and the weather, to ensure you get to the best locations available on the day).

As a guide, days usually start at 9:30am, with an hour for lunch and a finish time of around 5pm / 5:30pm. The day can be organised to incorporate a sunset and/or sunrise shoot if you so wish. All days are a minimum of 8 hours in length, regardless of start / finish time.

Most participants of World In Focus workshops require a fun day out in the beautiful Peak District countryside, whilst learning a new skill (or brushing up technique for those who know what they are doing). World In Focus are, however, also able to offer tuition in Digital Imaging, Post Process and how to use lighting, just for example.

Tuition can start from their base near Longnor in the Peak District, or from your Sheepskin accommodation. The same applies for those who book a ‘classroom’ type day to improve technical processing skills.
