Peak District Landscapes

Photograph some of the most stunning landscapes in the UK

The oldest National Park in the UK, the Peak District has long been regarded as being home to some of the most varied and beautiful landscapes in England. Despite being comprised mainly of limestone and gritstone, the landscape features imposing upland ‘edges’ rising up sharply from rolling, green dales and farmland providing a stark contrast in the overall geography of the area.

What we shoot on the day will depend the time of year, weather and your preferred subject matter. The format of the course is flexible but in order to maximise your time it’s advisable to start early and finish late, shooting or resting through the day if required. For almost 10 years, I have been photographing the area and although I’d admit to still only scratching the surface, I’ve become well acquainted with numerous locations.
