“Vicki and myself would like to take you on a walk through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Lake District and Snowdonia. The walks we undertake will not be too strenuous but will go over undulating ground and will last approximately 5-6 hours in duration. If you are in any doubt as to your own health and suitability, you must seek medical advice prior to attending.”
So what do we offer you?
Mark is one of the countries leading landscape photographers and has a wealth of experience working and taking groups out onto the fells over the past 40 years. Vicki looks through her lens in a slightly different way and offers a nicely balanced contrast to Marks 'wider' views of the fells. As we walk together, we will point out how we would approach photographing what we see and of course every time we go out that will be something very different.
Those of you who are regular visitors to the Lakes and Snowdonia will know that walking and stopping to take photographs can be a hindrance to other members of your usual walking group but we will show you how you can combine the two comfortably without being the source of adverse comments from others. Well not too much! Both Vicki and I will be on hand to help you with any technical queries you may have with your camera and to help with compositions. We would however expect a basic knowledge of your camera and how to adjust settings before coming out with us. It is not a workshop but our offer of guidance that is on offer.
So what will you need? As we are going to be out for a while a packed lunch, proper walking boots as well as the correct, purpose designed clothing to cover weather eventualities. Poles would be an advantage too when we descend. These are basic essentials. After all, it is the mountains....
Please note that this should not be confused with a comprehensive photography workshop but it will give you pointers to feel that you are getting the most from the situation and your camera at that time.
Groups will be limited to a maximum of 10 people and you will be responsible for your own safety during the walk.
Our planned walk in Snowdonia on Sunday June 2nd had to be postponed as my mum sadly passed away. A new date will be arranged. This will still be around the stunning Capel Curig area. We'd love you to join us! Further details can be obtained by contacting Vicki on her email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost for the day is £40 per person. We will meet at a specified location and then begin our walk from that point after a general discussion.
