Au programme

This is your chance to get some expert tuition on photography as well as see some of the most interesting sights in Kendal. We'll meet in the town centre and visit a few of the unique "Yards" of Kendal. There are still more than 120 and they are a characteristic design feature of the historic town centre. They provide excellent photo opportunities to practise your landscape, architectural and street photography skills. From there we will move to a very modern building known as The Box. This unusually shaped building has striking angles set amongst some traditional architecture so makes a wonderful photographic subject and a chance to capture some abstract and creative photos. We will then move on to the 12th Century historic castle which according to local legend was the birth place of Katherine Parr the last wife of Henry VIII. The site of the castle gives panoramic view over the town and lakeland fells and a chance to hone your landscape photography skills. You can also buddy up with one of the other people on the experience or myself to practise your portrait taking technique. Whatever type of photography you are interested in this experience will be sure to help you get to know your camera better, improve your composition and reward you with some great shots.

En savoir plus sur Richard

Richard

I live and work near Kendal in Cumbria providing local and national commercial clients with photography and video production. I specialise in commercial, property, and food photography as well as conveying the stories of innovative commercial enterprises with stunning visual imagery. Kendal is on borders of the English Lake District, and I have excellent knowledge of the local area and the beauty of the Lake District in all its weathers! I have been an enthusiastic amateur photographer since I was seventeen and became a full time professional in 2013. As well as providing local and national businesses with photos and video I run regular workshops helping people to get the best from their cameras.

Le lieu

Kendal's Yards are a unique aspect of the town and we visit a few of the most photogenic. You will get to see plenty of others so you know where to come back to and practice your new skills. Next we visit The Box. This very modern shaped building is hidden away in the town centre behind the "old dairy" and interesting mix of the old and new, before finally climbing Castle Hill to get a view over the town and explore the ruins.
