Jay Gilmour Media workshops are not just like any other workshop. Take in the sights, smells and tastes of Cumbria, learn photography from an award winning Cumbrian landscape photographer, breath the fresh Lake District air and sample some of the best home made cakes there is!

Learn all about powerful compositions, why it works and sometimes doesn’t.

Recognise how to put it all together and recognise the most important aspect of lighting.

WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:
Based around Derwentwater the 3 mile long lake is one of my favourite places to go. Filled with beautiful scenery like you would expect from the Lakes but also a variety of photographic hotspots making it the ideal place to learn.

Travelling along the water line to little known intimate locations to famous places like Ashness, creating images of big spectacular views to beautiful details in waterfalls, jetty's and a few of my favourite places in the Lakes.
Other things to note
There will be walking so please bring appropriate footwear and clothing, in Cumbria the weather can change instantly so please be prepared.
I will endeavour to fulfil any requests if given in reasonable time, location requests, time changes. I can be fairly flexible if needed.

Brilliant beginners photography course with Jay... We learnt so much and Jay made it so interesting with his knowledge, expertise and helpful tips... His choice of locations (waterfalls, local landmarks and mountain landscapes)made it easy to enjoy, they were absolutely beautiful.... We’ll definitely be back for more tuition in the future.
