Landscape Photography and Editing Workshops

with local, award winning photographer, Daniel Courtney

“It takes more than just a beautiful scene to get a truly beautiful image”

Daniel offers two workshops, each focused on beginner to intermediate photographers.


The 1 Day Landscape workshop consists of an afternoon on location with Daniel, as he teaches you the basics of landscape photography, shoots with you, critiques your images and inspires you. The workshop finishes up with sunset and you will put everything you have learnt during the day into practice, as your images afterwards will show!


The second workshop is his Introduction to Post Processing evening. It focuses on bringing your images from the camera right through to a finished product that you will be extremely proud to display on your walls at home.


Both of these workshops may be conducted together in a 2 Day format, which will teach you all the skills necessary to take the images, and process them to a high standard.

1 Day Landscape Workshop

Camera Settings

Daniel will take you through the basics of your camera and what the various modes mean.

Basic Equipment

Learn about tripods and why they are essential for landscape photos, but optional for other types of images.

Image Exposure

Daniel will use theory and practical examples to teach you about the exposure triangle, resulting in you having creative control over your camera and not the other way around!

Location scouting

Daniel will meet you at an iconic Newcastle location, one that allows you plenty of creativity, and Daniel will show you how he scouts a location after arriving for the first time. What he looks for and considers.


Learn about some basic rules of composition to get pleasing images. During the day Daniel will work with you as you shoot, pointing out potential compositions, and helping you to tweak your natural eye for improvement.  Also learn when you should break the rules!

Advanced equipment (filters, shutter releases, panorama heads, lightning triggers)

Daniel will show you some of the advanced equipment he has in his camera bag, what he uses specialised equipment for and what creative decisions the equipment lets him make.

Discuss RAW processing, photo selection, cropping and composition as Daniel takes you practically through your own images, or one of his high quality samples.

Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Familiarisation
