North Wales photography workshops & tours

Photograph spectacular mountains and coastal scenery

Come and experience the incredible coast and mountainous interior of North Wales. Here you will find everything from quarries, waterfalls, lone trees, mountains, lighthouses, boathouses, and stunning lakes and tarns (known as Llyns in Wales). The ever-changing weather conditions in North Wales creates a wonderful array of lighting scenarios that will add drama and impact to your photos.

Reasons to join our North Wales Workshops

Llyn Padarn Tree

The lone tree, as it’s known, sits in the middle of Llyn Padarn Lake situated in a tranquil natural beauty spot in Llanberis.

It is of course very popular with photographers, for good reason. The tree is best photographed at sunrise when the calm morning air and light bathes the perfectly reflected scene in soft cool blue at dawn and jaw-dropping colours at sunrise.

South Stack Lighthouse

Situated on Ynys Lawd, a tiny rocky outcrop just off the periphery of Holy Island – itself just a stone’s throw from the mainland of Anglesey – the South Stack Lighthouse is a spectacular scene for photographers.

It’s accessible via a 400-step switchback stairway twisting down the cliff face. Upon reaching the bottom, a footbridge spans the crevice ushering visitors onto the island. Although, for photography the best views are from the cliffs above.

The atmosphere around the South Stack Lighthouse can change dramatically with the weather. Stormy weather, mist, or fog can add a sense of drama to your shots. As the scene is facing west, sunsets here can be amazing, especially if you capture the sun behind the lighthouse.

Llynnau Mymbyr

This beautiful scene is set amongst Snowdonia’s highest peaks. From the lakes there are magnificent views of the rugged mountain scenery across its waters to the Snowdon Horseshoe and the peaks of Grib Goch; Crib y Ddysgl; Snowdon and Lliwedd.

These mountains all provide a wonderful backdrop and reflection, particularly during sunrise and sunset.

Trefor, North Wales.

Trefor Sea Stacks

The village of Trefor offers extraordinary views of the Llŷn Peninsula and these incredible sea stacks, located just offshore from Trefor Beach. Its rugged scenery is like something out of a fantasy world, so much so that it was chosen as the setting for the TV series, House of the Dragon.

Join us on our North Wales photography workshops & tours for an unforgettable few days of photography.
