One to One Landscape Photography Courses in the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire

Learn how to capture superb digital landscape images with the guidance of Nigel Forster LBIPP, a professional photographer specialising in evocative landscape images. At the same time you’ll get to see some fantastic scenery in either the Brecon Beacons or Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks (or both if you’re really enthusiastic!) – what more could you possibly ask for!

All our One to One Landscape courses are bespoke and tailored to your individual needs based on a questionnaire we send out in advance, although the landscape course assumes some previous experince of photography. We offer learning in the use of your camera and equipment and a wide range of landscape photography techniques.

At each great location we’ll explore a different aspect of photography and you’ll learn how to create powerful images using the secrets of great composition, stunning natural light, the latest techniques in digital photography, and of course the wonderful natural features which make up our unique landscapes. You'll get an easily understandable insight into creating images you thought only the professionals could capture!

As one of our course members has said ‘this course makes you see things in a different way’ !

Courses are mainly based in the Brecon Beacons nad Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks; however Nigel is happy to design a course around your favourite locations from Cardiff Bay to Carmarthen Town Centre!!
