Landscape photography workshop in the heart of Wales



Join award winning landscape and wildlife photographer Drew Buckley on a Photography Workshop in 'Waterfall Country' - exploring the stunning waterfalls of the Brecon Beacons in Autumn.

Meeting in the morning we will start our workshop walking through the autumnal woodland, exploring these unique river valleys before arriving at one of the two waterfalls we'll be visiting. Spending time until we've exhausted the photographic potential, we'll head back to the car park for lunch and then travel towards the second waterfall before finishing around 4pm.

I will be on hand to provide instruction throughout and feedback at all times helping you to improve your landscape photography, learn new long exposure techniques and understanding your camera.

A great afternoon spent with Drew learning loads of great tips about landscape photography. Taught/reminded me about several functions on my SLR camera that will really help me with my photography. He was very personable and knowledgeable - about the subject and our surroundings and the wildlife of the area.

Useful guide on what equipment to bring and the need for outdoor clothes, walking boots and any refreshment I might want to bring. He answered all my questions and covered the topics I wanted to learn more about. Always clear in his explanations and involving practical experience in taking pictures and discussing how they work/could be improved.

Lessons learned will stay with me and help improve my photography.
Highly recommended.

David : 1-2-1 Full Day

Thoroughly enjoyed a half day 1-2-1 session with Drew. I was looking for some general guidance and inspiration on the use of a new camera and it was well worth it. I learnt more in those 3 hours than the hours and hours I’ve spent scrolling the internet or reading books full of technical jargon. Drew was able to break it all down and demonstate different techniques and settings through example. It was a lightbulb moment for me in taking my photography to the next level.

Drew was a pleasure to spend a few hours with and easy to talk to - he’s clearly very knowledgeable and experienced. I learnt a lot and I’m looking forward to putting it all into practice. I’d highly recommend his workshop to beginners, enthusiasts and professionals alike. Thank you.

Faye : 1-2-1 Half Day

Drew is clearly a photographer at the top of his game and it was an absolute pleasure to learn from the best during my one-to-one with him last week.

Took the opportunity of a Landscape Photography session with Drew and enjoyed every second and, even though I'm not a total beginner, learnt an incredible amount throughout. Drew's knowledge is amazing - both as regards photography and the local area and conditions and he put all this to good use in picking great locations for us to visit and then providing the coaching to get the best of the location and light. As a result, I'm staggered and immensely pleased with the images I came away with.

Drew's also a thoroughly nice guy with calm, relaxed but confident approach and couldn't do enough to help and provide advice.
