Learn what it takes to shoot extraordinary Landscape photographs on this 3-day workshop with professional photographer Kevin Ahronson
The workshop splits the three days up to enable classroom teaching,
real-time photography at one of the south’s most beautiful locations and the final day back in the classroom, where you will edit your photos.
A full day in the classroom learning what makes a successful landscape photographer. Composition, gear, filter-work and fieldcraft.
You go out with cameras to a location in Dorset or Hampshire to put into practice what you have learnt in the classroom
You return to the classroom (this time with your computer) where we evaluate and sieve through your work and then look at a range of editing techniques using Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.
We believe that small groups are a superior way to learn,
and that is why places on this workshop are limited to just 6 people
This workshop runs twice a year, May and early Autumn
Please be aware… Day Two of the workshop could be a very early start, in order to capture sunrise (which is around 5am in May and 7am in October).
Exact locations for the Day Two exercise will only be disclosed to participants.
The workshop is for anyone with a DSLR or a mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera.
You’ll need a sturdy tripod and a means of firing it remotely (either by a cable or by a wireless trigger). A set of filters is also essential for some of the techniques we’ll be using. If you don’t have any filters we can give advice about which ones to buy. We may also have some filters to loan you on the day.
Discover some of today’s most popular techniques for photographing water, in both low light and under the brightest sun.
Develop your creative eye through the use of filters and exposure control.
Learn focusing techniques to ensure all of your image is tack-sharp.
Landscape photography is more than simply mastering composition, it’s also about understanding and working with light. There was a time when most landscape photographers only worked during times of sunrise and sunset, but as digital techniques have evolved, shooting throughout the day is now entirely possible.
And on day three, we go back into the training room with our computers and look at editing techniques in both Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.
With over 50 years experience behind the camera, professional photographer Kevin Ahronson will share with you his tips and techniques for getting the best out of your landscape photography.
His teaching style is real-world practical, avoiding the more esoteric content which is often taught in colleges and universities. And while many aspects of photography can be quite technical, Kevin has developed ways of communicating information that easy to understand, in a very visual format.

All participants should bring their computer with them to the Training Centre on day three and must have Adobe Lightroom Classic + Photoshop already installed and functioning. You must also ensure that your computer is powerful enough to run them effectively*.
The latest version of Lightroom and Photoshop will be used throughout the workshop. If you have old versions on your computer, some of the techniques demonstrated may not work.
If you have a graphics tablet, we advise you to bring that too - as it will give you better control.
If your system is not working properly or the installation is incomplete, we won’t be able to assist you during the workshop. There is a busy schedule that cannot be delayed to help you out should you arrive unprepared (it wouldn’t be fair on everyone else on the course).
