The Mountain Landscape Photography course blends together the photographic and mountain skills required to get you Out There, beyond the well known and easy to reach ‘honey pots’ and into the mountains for those unique photo opportunities. If you’re interested in landscape photography and you want to get to grips with the unique challenges of making memorable digital images in the mountain areas of the UK this could be for you.

Course Aims
The course aims to show you the skills and techniques needed to capture stunning mountain images at the same time as covering the knowledge and practice you need to operate comfortably and safely in mountain environments. The courses are also about getting you into places you might not otherwise have accessed and giving you lots of opportunity to practice as you learn and get some memorable images to take home with you.

What will I learn about?
Photographic topics such as:

Equipment - What kit do we use, taking into consideration the need to carry this into the mountains?
Exposure - How do we control exposure and looking at creative use of aperture and shutter speeds and considering ‘depth of field’ and histograms
Composition - planning your shot and looking at the ‘rules’ and considering how to get balance and harmony in your landscape shots
Lighting - Considering the importance of lighting conditions for landscape shots and how this builds into our planning
Filtration - A look at the use of polarizing filters, Neutral density filters and Graduated Neutral density filters and why we use them
Advanced techniques – Getting the sharpest images, low-light photography, Hyperfocal distance, ‘exposing to the right’

Mountain skills covered such as:

Basic use of the map and using the map to help plan shots
Route Planning
Clothing & Equipment
Considering important factors such as weather during the planning of your trip
Hazards and dealing with emergency incidents

Is this course for me?
To make the most of the course you will have a basic understanding of how to operate your digital SLR and you’ll have a reasonable level of fitness (this is important as most of our time will be spent in the mountains). The emphasis will however be on learning skills and making images, rather than covering long distances and we’ll always adapt what we do to match participants needs and expectations.
