A place that rarely disappoints. Alnmouth estuary at 7.45am yesterday morning. Great 1 to 1 with Heather working on live view, manual exposure and manual focus. Travelled on from the estuary to Craster, Dunstanburgh (slow exposure on waves), Holy Island, Bamburgh and back to Alnmouth.
There are still dates available for budding landscapers to book in November and December. (1 to 1 or small groups)
New venture – Geoff Perry Photography
An Insight into Landscape Photography
Long summer days are here again even though the temperatures don’t match the season!
Time for landscapers to look for drama in the countryside under those huge changeable skies.
Over the next 4 months I will be dedicating time to examining the detail in our surroundings with the view to launching a new feel to my landscape work.
Recently I have had the pleasure of working with a number of budding landscape photographers wishing to hone their skills. I have enjoyed sharing those thoughts of solitude and awareness with like-minded people. Landscape photography is not just about seeing, it is also dependent on feeling and engaging with the surroundings ignore these and the image will not succeed. If you wish to capture the complete picture then I would like to share my experiences with you.
This important element of landscape photography can only be effectively conveyed on either a one to one, or, one to two basis. With this in mind I would enjoy offering a shared landscape experience to interested photographers.
Take a look at some recent landscape courses delivered through Making Photographs -
One Day Courses
One-day courses can be arranged in most locations in our region, I am familiar with many.
From the Yorkshire Dales, the coastlines of North Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland up to the Scottish Borders.
More recently I have photographed areas of the Lake District including: Ullswater; Coniston; Buttermere and Wast Water regions.
Call Geoff on:

One of my favourite locations in Swaledale taken on the roadside between Reeth to Richmond. Having just completed a photo shoot for Julia at the Burgoyne Hotel in Reeth (hidden behind the tree-line) http://www.theburgoyne.co.uk I decided to return home via the diversion. As I climbed out of the dale heading south I glimpsed the view in my wing mirror. Initially I struggled to find foreground interest until I came across a these tussocks which were catching the light. Further into the view there were some interesting rocks and a broken wall which I used in the foreground. I will return to this spot to photograph the flowering heather and perhaps the middle-ground barn. With a lot of luck I will hopefully manage to find my new sunglasses and my reading specs which I managed to loose in the space of 30 minutes!
