Over the weekend of the 9th and 10th of September, I attended the Moorsview Landscape and Wildlife Photography seminar. Please see the link for more details of what the weekend had to offer. moorsview

The Saturday was a day full of talks by various Photographer from the local area. All had an informative Q & A session at the end.

My highlights were:-

  • The location. The Theatre was a excellent location for this type of event. 
  • Joe Cornish. This gentleman knows his stuff and it was a pleasure to listen to what he had to say. He talked about his love for The North Yorkshire Moors and how they had changed over the years of him capturing them on camera.
  • The passion and commitment shown by all the speakers regarding why they do what they do. This really shown through during their talks.
  • The excellent buffet lunch provided by the Forest and Vale Hotel (this was also my accommodation for the Saturday night too)

Sunday I had booked myself on to a free Photo walk starting at the Hole of Horcum and going through the valley finishing near Skelton Tower. This walk was organised and led by John Clifton of PC Photographic.The weather was dry but not much light. The walk and the scenery that unfolded in front of us during the walk was beautiful. John had a really good knowledge of the area which made the walk even more interesting. I really enjoyed this and it was good to listen to some of the other Photographers along the way.

Here are a couple of edited images that I got on the way round. I had the privilege of being accompanied by a mum and calf. The calf also allowed my to get close and take the image. This is probably my 1st wildlife image.

I really enjoyed this weekend and it also got me to make my mind up that Landscape Photography is my thing. I may have a lot to learn but I will enjoy it in while I am learning. I may even get into the Wildlife side of things too. 

Looking forward to the next one!!!!

Many thanks goes to all who were involved and we made some money that will help good causes in the local area.
