INTRODUCTION

ONE DAY COURSE            10:00AM – 4:00PM

Every month in the year offers wonderful opportunities for taking great photographs. This workshop, broken down into 12 distinct monthly sections, considers pastoral, agricultural, coastal, industrial and urban landscapes.  The Landscape Photographers Calendar workshop is delivered by Tony Worobiec, author of 15 books Tony studied fine art at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne and spent 18 years as head of a large design faculty. With a maximum of 6 students per course, the course is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills with one of the best in the business.

Each section of the Landscape Photographers Calendar workshop will start with a brief introduction outlining the characteristics of the month in question, and an examination of the possible opportunities. Weather of course plays a big part, and issues relating to how one overcomes certain difficult conditions are carefully explained. The idea that any given location changes as the calendar advances is examined in detail.

While this is not aiming to be a technical “how-to do it” course, issues concerning lenses, filters etc will be discussed, and where appropriate recommended. Some of the ideas and techniques will be unique to that specific month, although others will be transferable. For example, while photographing in rain is discussed in “February”, (as this tends to be our wettest month), that doesn’t mean that one cannot take stunning rain shots in July.

The Landscape Photographers Calendar workshop aims to encourages students to value their own immediate environment and is a reminder that there is no need to necessarily travel large distances to indulge a passion for landscape photography. One can predict how the landscape around us will change month by month; this course will focus on the opportunities presented by each month of the year.

To get the most out of the Landscape Photographers Calendar workshop, it is recommended that students know how to control aperture, shutter speed and ISO and understand how these settings interact and affect an image. These skills are taught on our Beginners Digital Photography Course.

THE TUTOR - Tony Worobiec FRPS

Creative Composition and Critique

Author of 15 books, Tony Worobiec studied fine art at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne and spent 18 years as head of a large design faculty in Dorset. He has won awards for photography in the UK and internationally, and has had work exhibited in London’s Barbican Gallery, Bradford’s National Museum of Photography, The Menier Gallery London and The Fox Talbot Museum Lacock. He is a founder member and until recently chairman of the prestigious Arena Group of Photographers. Dozens of his photographs have been used for book or album covers.

His work has appeared in many photographic magazines both here in the UK and in America. More recently he has developed an expertise in digital imaging, exploring both monochrome and colour techniques and has been invited to write extended articles for specialist digital photographic magazines such as Black & White Photography, Practical Photography, Total Digital Photography, Digital Photo Digital Camera and Photo Techniques USA.

A passionate traveler, Tony (together with his wife Eva,) has made frequent visits to the USA, documenting the depopulating areas of western Nebraska, North and South Dakota and south-eastern Montana. The culmination of this work has been the much celebrated book “Ghosts in the Wilderness; Abandoned America” (published by AAPPL). This was favourably reviewed in numerous national newspapers including The Independent, The Guardian and The Washington Post. Very recently, a new book “Fragments of The American Dream” has been published, which reinvestigates the same area to see if many changes have occurred.

Another personal project involved scouring the old American highways in search of the dwindling glamour of many of the independent diners, motels, hotels, and theaters that continue to survive. This work is an attempt to celebrate these iconic beacons which epitomize the American dream and to ensure that they do not become a fading memory. This project was also published by AAPPL and is titled “Icons of the Highway”. Work from this project also appears on both The BBC and The Guardian websites.

A Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, Tony is a fine art photographer with work in the permanent collection of The RPS, The Fox Talbot Museum and in numerous private collections here in the UK, in Europe, Japan and in The States.

More about Tony is avaialble on his website.
