Snowdonia features some of the most photogenic mountains south of Scotland. While they afford great views over the landscape from up high, they also make interesting subjects from the ground, especially when photographed from many of the national park's lakes.

Mining has shaped much of the landscape and the remnants of that heritage remain at places such as Dinorwig quarry and many of the nearby slate mines. Decaying bits of machinery, abandoned buildings and piles of slate make for interesting subject matter.

Just across the Menai Strait is the island of Anglesey, with its rugged coastline dotted with lighthouses and historic buildings. Places like Llanddwyn Island and South Stack Lighthouse will be within easy reach.

What to expect

The workshop will involve walks of three to four miles each day. You should be reasonably fit but it won't be strenuous. With a maximum group size of four we can visit locations without overcrowding and you'll receive plenty of one-to-one tuition.

This is a three-day workshop with single occupancy accommodation, breakfast and dinner at the The Royal Victoria Hotel in Llanberis included. A packed lunch will be provided on days two and three.
