We have on offer 2 Photography Day Experiences:

the Villager Jim Photography Day and our Photography Walk called Woodlands and Waterfalls, both are magical days, where you’ll learn lots about photography and your camera, and experience the Peak District at its very best.

Villager Jim Photography Day

Learn the camera tricks and techniques used by Villager Jim to create beautiful photographs and capture the scenes and animals of Villager Jim’s world using your own camera. You will be chauffeured around the Peak District to locations that offer amazing photographic opportunities. Regardless of your experience or camera, you will learn lots.

Villager Jim Photography Day

Learn the camera tricks and techniques used by me to create beautiful photographs and capture the scenes and animals of Villager Jim’s world using your own camera.

Your session includes …
– Tuition to help you get the best out of your camera, ‘Villager Jim Style’
– Advice on composition
– A trip out to visit and photograph some of Villager Jim’s favourite places

There will be at most three people on each trip, making your experience quiet and personal.

No overcrowding, no being overlooked and no scaring away the wildlife!

We won’t promise you that we will see any wildlife – we never really know what we will see ourselves when we go out with our own cameras! – but we will put you in the best possible position to do so.

What we can guarantee is lots of beautiful, quiet countryside, some great local critters, fabulous flora and fauna and some brilliant expert guidance.
