Peak District Landscapes

Photograph some of the most stunning landscapes in the UK

FYI: Due to COVID-19, we're either operating with a reduced number of hide/workshop days or have had to stop taking booking altogether. Dates may open up again in 2022 so please check back again periodically. For more information, please get in touch.

The first National Park in the UK, the Peak District has long attracted visitors from all over the world. The imposing upland edges, gritstone and moorland of the Dark Peak falls away into rolling, green dales, farmland and limestone of the White Peak, making it home to some of the most varied and beautiful landscapes in the UK.
On our Peak District Landscapes workshop, we'll head to the places that inspire you most. With guidance from professional photographer, Chris Johnstone, you'll learn how to do justice to the stunning scenes that you discover, as well as picking up tips on how to make the most of your camera.
The day is yours - tuition is flexible and taken at your pace, but with endless landscapes to choose from, you can expect a full day in the great outdoors and some memorable photographs to take home.
Please take some time to read through the information on this page. You can check availability and make a booking online by selecting a date from the calendar. Alternatively, contact us directly and we’ll answer any questions you may have.

  • If you want to spend a full day improving your photography skills and exploring some of the most inspiring views in the Peak District, we recommend this workshop for you.
  • An ideal course for newcomers to landscape photography.
  • Available for a maximum of two photographers, ensuring you get tuition that's tailored to your interest, ability and conditions on the day.
  • Some of the locations we visit may be remote with no mobile phone signal or toilet facilities.
  • Guidance from a professional photographer with over 10 years' experience of photography, tuition and field craft.
  • The format of the course is flexible, but we recommend starting early and finishing late to maximise the light and ensure you get the most from your day - don't worry, we’ll leave time for a rest!


  • A digital SLR or bridge camera with a timer release or a wired/wireless remote timer.
  • Wide angle to medium telephoto lens (the more variety, the more flexibility).

  • We urge you to dress for the changing conditions of the outdoors. Regardless of the forecast, warm clothing, a waterproof layer and sturdy walking boots are essential.
  • We are likely to encounter uneven ground that can become wet, uneven and slippery. Appropriate footwear with ankle support and sturdy grip is essential.
  • We love to carry a few ‘just in case’ items – waterproof over trousers, a hat, gloves, gaiters and (our favourite), a spare pair of warm, dry socks, are a few suggestions!
  • We may visit parts of the Peak District that are remote and highly exposed to weather. For your own safety, we reserve the right to cancel your booking if you arrive with insufficient clothing for the conditions.
