Masterclass - Composition


I’m currently revamping my business, having shifted to part-time photography. For the time being I’ll be focusing on providing "One to One" sessions, commercial commisions and publishing more photography books and photo 'zines'. As such, no further group courses are scheduled at this time. Thanks, Rod.

Is this course for me?

The basics of composition are great for getting started and helping image creation but after a while, relying solely on ‘standard rules of composition’ can result in repetitive and uninspiring images.  This course is for photographers looking to move their image making on and developing their style & vision. Workshops are undertaken in the Lake District, a perfect area for Photography Courses, Workshops and Tours.

(If you haven’t yet got to grips with composition basics, have a look at our ‘Beginners One Day Workshop’ HERE).


Course Aims

The course is aimed at taking you beyond composition basics through a series of hands-on, practical activities that are both instructive and enjoyable. It will help you build better images through ‘active seeing’ and visualisation which are core building blocks to expand your compositional abilities. In turn, the range and style of images considered possible from a given location will increase and you will be able to explore new styles.


What will I learn about?

  • The art of ‘seeing’ & examining a scene

  • Visualising an image in your minds-eye

  • Differences between how we see and what the camera captures

  • Reviewing and refining composition in the field

  • Awareness and utilising elements of design within a scene

  • Developing your style


How long does it last?

The Masterclass lasts for 3 hours and will start in the morning. This leaves you with the rest of the day to put your learning into practice.


Equipment for you to bring along?

Your usual camera


Group size

The Masterclass will run with minimum of 4 and a maximum of 5 people
