Rod Ireland Photography
Rod Ireland Photography provides a variety of workshops and tuition. As someone who lives and works in the Lake District, Rod (a qualified Mountain Leader) can help you get to the iconic locations you’ve heard of and the secret gems you haven’t!
We cater for beginners through to more advanced photographers. So, whether you want to develop your skills or just want guiding to the right locations at the right time, we can help you. We also have the option of easy valley / lakeside trips, or we can venture upwards for those wanting big mountain views. Whatever you need, let us help you capture those memorable landscape images for yourself.
1-TO-1 PHOTOGRAPHY TUITION
There are times when a 1-to-1 session will be more beneficial to you than a group workshop. Join us for a half or full day and explore your potential and focus on the areas that match your specific individual requirements.
PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP – BEGINNERS
Aimed at developing your confidence and understanding around the fundamental building blocks required to progress your photography. Whether you’re new to digital photography or just looking to get more out of your camera, then this course is for you.
PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP INTERMEDIATE
A workshop designed to move your photography to the next level. You will get the time and support to help you assess your own work and understand the elements that make up successful images. You want to make more of your camera’s capabilities and improve technical image quality. You might have hit a ‘creative plateau’ and want to move things on.
MOUNTAIN PHOTOGRAPHY WILDCAMP EXPEDITION
A course blending together photographic and mountain skills required to get you off the beaten track, beyond well known ‘honey pots’ for authentic and unique photo opportunities. If you’re interested in landscape photography and you want to get to grips with the unique challenges of making memorable digital images in the mountain areas of the UK, this is the course for you.
‘THE SECRET LAKE DISTRICT’
The Lake District is one of the world’s premier photography destinations, with an abundance of mountains -the ‘fells’, set aloft from numerous Lakes and verdant green valleys. Sadly, many photographers never get to the chance to explore beyond crowded ‘honey pots’. Popular locations risk becoming clichéd and it’s almost impossible to shake off the influence of already seen images in order to create an original composition.
‘The Secret Lake District’ is an antidote to this – helping you explore further and deeper into the vast photographic potential of this unique area.
RESIDENTIAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
We run residential workshops in partnership with handpicked accommodation providers in the Lake District. Along with great accommodations, you’ll have lots of opportunity to capture great images in stunning surroundings.
As well as tuition, we sell fine art landscape images and provide commercial photography services to businesses and other organisations around Cumbria and the Lake District.
