In early 2012 I was lucky enough to mix my love for the outdoors with inspiring others about photography by hosting tutorials at the National Trust's Hardcastle Crags, Gibson Mill. As featured on the BBC Activity website, off we went into the woodland. I helped the group to learn about imagery and how to take a picture that they could be proud of - enhanced by amazing surroundings. These have thankfully been successful and have resulted in more tutorials organised at Hardcastle Crags and now Marsden Moor too! I'm so excited for the National Trust tutorials to start and it would be lovely to see you there. If you're interested then please do visit their websites.
'Since attending Sarah's one day course my photography has transformed. I have started taking photos of a broader range of subjects, trying techniques I would not otherwise have considered myself capable of. It is so good to have contact with a professional photographer willing to share her extensive skills and knowledge.' Jade Smith
This developed into individuals enquiring about private sessions. If this is something you're interested in, perhaps for you and some friends then take a look below to see what you can expect:
This course is ideal for beginners in digital photography and those who want to learn how to get the most out of their camera, whether it's a compact or DSLR.
We'll tackle that by getting to grips with exposure and what it all means, including looking at composition that will help to make your photos stand out from the crowd. As we're working through these essential photography points I will help you develop your natural "eye" and within no time you'll begin to see things in a very different way.
Quite often, a special moment within life happens - and we've missed it. If you wish your family snaps could be a little more refined, this package will help by exploring and discussing various techniques, natural light and composition.
Each course starts with a quick introduction at my office where we'll have a short chat about the session over a cuppa. Then we'll head out on location in and around Hebden Bridge (if there's a place special to you we can discuss this beforehand).
Afterwards, we'll come back to my office and download your images to see what you've captured. This allows me to give you a short introduction to some post-production techniques and tips on how to best present your images. Both are either half or full day courses and can be purchased as a gift for a special someone, organised as a corporate day out or perhaps a group outing.
