Coast and moors masterclass

The best way for intermediate photographers to improve quickly is to be coached during a location shoot.

At a variety of coastal and moorland locations, I will guide you through how to approach a location shoot from start to finish, including location choice (based on weather and light), choice of shot, mastering composition, filter choice and camera settings, all the way through to taking the shot.
