PHOTO WALKS

Discover some Of The Most Beautiful and Unspoilt Areas Of The Lake District and Snowdonia with Mark and Vicki

"During the long months of Lockdown and other covid restrictions, I fantasised about my perfect photography day out where all I had to think about was what kit to take, knowing I could follow a well thought out pre-planned route, with guaranteed photo opportunities and some expert knowledge on hand should I need it, and preferably in the company of a few other likeminded people. Well miracles do happen and I was able to do just that on a Photo Walk organised by Mark and his talented assistant Vicki........Somehow they’d even managed to arrange some great weather (perhaps not entirely due to them) and I enjoyed a wonderful Photo Walk in beautiful Snowdonia with a small group of lovely people. The route was well thought out, with plenty of time to take in the views and get the shots we wanted, as well as a relaxing lunch stop. It was exactly what I needed in order to convince myself that the world of photo opportunity is still out there and that we are, slowly but surely, able to get back to doing the things we love to do. I’m already looking forward to the next one, Thanks Mark & Vicki.

OUR NEXT WALK WILL BE TAKING PLACE IN THE LAKES DURING SPRING 2022

 

We would like to take you on a walk through some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK.

The walks we undertake will not be too strenuous but we will go over undulating ground. They will last approximately 5 - 6 hours in duration. If you are in any doubt as to your own health and suitability, you must seek medical advice prior to attending.

"I enjoyed the relaxed pace of the day and while this was not a workshop there was still plenty of great information and tips to be had."

— Steve Davies

So what do we offer you?

Mark is one of the countries leading landscape photographers and has a wealth of experience working and taking groups out onto the fells over the past 35 years. I look through my lens in a slightly different way and that offers a nicely balanced contrast to Marks 'wider' views of the fells. As we walk together, we will point out how we would approach photographing what we see and of course every time we go out that will be something very different. 

Those of you who are regular visitors to the Lake District and Snowdonia will know that walking and stopping to take photographs can be a hindrance to other members of your usual walking group but we will show you how you can combine the two comfortably without being the source of adverse comments from others. Well not too much! Both Mark and I will be on hand to help you with any technical queries you may have with your camera and to help with compositions. We would however expect a basic knowledge of your camera and how to adjust settings before coming out with us. We do have to emphasise that this is not a workshop but our guidance with your photography that is on offer.

So what will you need?

As we are going to be out for a while a packed lunch, proper walking boots and clothing to cover weather eventualities are essentials. After all, it is the outdoors....

Groups will be limited to a maximum of 10 people but will only be undertaken with a minimum of 6 and you will be responsible for your own safety during the walk

We're delighted to announce that due to the success of our Lake District photo walks Mark & I will also be running photo walks in Snowdonia. We'd love you to join us!

 

The next walk will be taking place in the spring 2022 in the Lakes with the date to be confirmed nearer the time

Further details on the walks and info on how to book including terms and conditions can be obtained by contacting me by email at victoria@victoriajaynephotography.com

The cost for the day is £50 per person. We will meet at a specified location and then begin our walk from that point after a general discussion.

We look forward to seeing you !
