Yorkshire Dales Filmmaking & Photography Workshops


Yorkshire Dales

Aspiring creatives can develop skills in the stunning natural setting of the Yorkshire Dales. The picturesque landscapes and charming towns provide inspiration for unforgettable photographs and films.


A photography and filmmaking workshop in the Yorkshire Dales is an incredible opportunity for aspiring creatives to learn new skills and develop their craft.

The region is renowned for its natural beauty, with rolling hills, dramatic landscapes, and charming rural towns and villages providing endless inspiration for photographers and filmmakers alike. From quaint market towns like Hawes and Settle to the stunning Malham Cove and the breathtaking Ribblehead Viaduct, the Yorkshire Dales offer a wealth of stunning locations to explore.

During the workshop, participants can expect to receive expert instruction in composition, lighting, and camera techniques. In addition, the unique challenges and opportunities of filming in an outdoor setting will be explored. From capturing natural light to framing shots in a way that highlights the beauty of the surroundings, the workshop will provide valuable insights into the art of photography and filmmaking.

Suitable for any skill level, you'll receive one to one coaching during the workshop to help you advance your skills, whether you're a beginner, hobbyist or pro.

5 out of 5 stars

“Izak guided me practically around how to film. He patiently and enthusiastically debunked what is a highly technical subject and allowed me to be myself in what I saw and how to capture this through the lens of a camera. I came away confident that I had acquired sufficient skills to start my filming journey.”
