Masterclass - Waterfalls


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?

If you like waterfalls and other moving water and you want to master the different ways in which you can render them, then YES! Masterclass sessions are undertaken in the Lake District, a perfect area for Photography Courses, Workshops and Tours.

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


Course Aims

The course is aimed at providing you with the knowledge and tools that will help you to better capture the beautiful wonder of nature – waterfalls. At the end of the session, you will know about planning out your waterfall shoot, including consideration around weather and lighting; you will have a better understanding of the range of compositions and scales possible and you will also have learnt the technical steps required to get the image to render in the way that you find most pleasing.


What will I learn about?

Safety considerations when photographing around water

Planning the shoot – Identifying suitable weather and lighting conditions

Different compositional ideas for creating waterfall images

Various methods to control the camera to get the image to render how you want

Additional equipment that might be used, including filters (Neutral Density & Polarising)

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

Tripod (essential – but we have a couple spare if required)

Filters if you have them (but we do have KASE filters available for you to try if required)

Group size

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