The North York Moors has the largest expanse of heather moorland in the UK and in late summer it puts on a magnificent display of light pink to deep purple blossoming heather for miles and miles. The moorland is scattered with rocks, lone trees and bright green ferns making it an ideal location for taking landscape images.

Sutton Bank is located on the western edge of the North York Moors and offers magnificent views across the Vale of Mowbray and the Vale of York. The late novelist, Alf Wight - more famously known as the Yorkshire vet, James Herriot who practised nearby - proclaimed that the view from the slopes of Sutton Bank was “the finest in England”.

On this workshop, you will be encouraged to think a little deeper than the obvious and also consider both colour and black and white image options to suit your way of thinking, the location and the mood that the weather presents on the day. Mark will be on hand all day to help you with your ideas and technique in order to make successful images.

Most locations will be within 200 yards of the vehicle. The last location at Sutton Bank involves a leisurely walk of around half a mile on a flat, grassy surface. 

Maximum group size: 6

Lunch arrangements: In order to maximise photo opportunities, participants are asked to bring a packed lunch and drinks with them.

Please also bring:

  • Camera, charged batteries, memory card
  • tripod
  • graduated filters (1, 2 & 3 stop hard graduated filters) if you have them
  • small change for car park at Sutton Bank.

The workshop will finish at 8pm or later if there is likely to be a good sunset.
