Yorkshire Photo Walks
About Every photograph is a new discovery.
About Yorkshire Photo Walks Without further ado, let's get to the crux of what we do and how we do it...
AFFORDABLE PHOTOGRAPHY COURSES - Our Photo Walks are extremely affordable at just £25 for two hours hands on photography tuition. For the content and attention to detail in each and every walk, believe us, this is a snip! Our bespoke courses also offer up to three hours 1to1 tuition for just £50! SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS - Whether you are a beginner or an enthusiast, Yorkshire Photo Walks will make sure that everyone gets as much out of each session as possible. No one will go home bamboozled and no one will go home bored. We also cater for people with different levels of mobility, offering short, flat strolls to longer rambles. PRACTICAL AND HANDS ON - All of our sessions allow you to put vital theory into practice with the help of our expert, professional tutor. You will learn by doing, not simply reading a manual or sitting in a classroom. AMAZING LOCATIONS - Tom, our tutor, has an extensive knowledge of this fabulous county and knows all the best places to take photos. With over 50 unique locations covered each and every year, you will never be short of inspiration. LEARN IN BITE-SIZED CHUNKS - Many people have said to us that, having been on longer courses, they often get overwhelmed with the amount of information bombarding them. Lasting 2 hours on average, each Photo Walk is structured to help you get the most out of a specific subject or technique. Each session gives you the opportunity to learn something new, with some thinking time in between to let everything sink in. SMALL GROUPS MEAN MORE INDIVIDUAL TUITION - There are never more than 6 people on a Yorkshire Photo Walk, giving the tutor more time to spend with each participant on a 1to1 basis. You will always be given the opportunity to ask questions away from the pressure of a group. Tom says by making the most of his time, you will make the most out of your time. PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN - Tom is a great believer in the fact that learning about photography should be fun. Therefore, the atmosphere on all Photo Walks he provides is relaxed and jovial, helping everyone feel at ease and making the learning process addictive and effortless. THE SOCIAL ASPECT - Tom always encourages iteration, on a Yorkshire Photo Walk you will learn from everyone, receive great feedback about your photos and share anecdotes with fellow participants. We will often end each day by getting together in a local pub. GETTING MORE FOR YOUR MONEY - The Yorkshire Photo Walk experience doesn't simply come to an end when the walk is over. We offer photo sharing through our online gallery, where the tutor and others can post useful comments on your photos, on 'How to' sessions we provide a PDF of the points covered, and our free online articles and tutorials provide additional advise. ABOUT TOM, THE YORKSHIRE PHOTO WALKS TUTOR... Tom Marsh is a young(ish) photographer with bags of passion and over 5 years teaching experience. In 2012, when he established Yorkshire Photo Walks, he had just embarked upon a Masters Degree in Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster. Today he continues to share his extensive knowledge, teaching clients to 'think photographically.' This tempts them away from a point and shoot mentality towards a more considered approach. Sharing hints and tips about camera settings, composition and observation skills, Tom makes every photograph a new discovery. His love of photography is abundant on every session, making each Photo Walk extremely addictive and informative. Tom labels himself as 'The Flat Capped Photographer.' Born and bred in Yorkshire he has a wealth of local knowledge and uses this to help his Photo Walkers find the best shots. His jovial character and extremely friendly and approachable nature makes learning from him effortless. Tom's background is in contemporary photographic art. After struggling to cope with sitting behind a desk all day as a website designer, he bravely took the step to launch a new career as a photographic artist and tutor. Since then he has exhibited his work in London and, proudly, in his home city of Leeds. He has also staged mass group projects such as the Yorkshire Dales Photographic Grid Project, which has received great acclaim, being featured in the Yorkshire Post and on BBC Look North in 2017.
