Landscape Days came about when Andy & Nigel were out for the day in the hills, they thought that it would be great to be able to pass on to other photographers all the little tips and secrets they had collected over the years and the result is this website.
They both prefer to get as much of the finished photograph done on site at the time the shutter is fired, with as little post production work on the computer as possible.
They offer courses that are put together around you, if you are just getting into photographing landscapes, macro photography, portraits, birds of prey, or are more advanced we can help.
They can also loan equipment if required where possible including filters and tripods.
With regard to locations, they currently have a few favourite choices and they will have a 2 day course based on the Llyn Peninsula with overnight accomodation in Nefyn.
Andy supplies photographic equipment to a vast range of photographers from the first timer to full studios.
He was for a number of years the official photographer for the National Twinshock Association supplying shots to national newspapers and magazines on their behalf and also to the riders attending these events nationwide, he is also self employed as a photographer and printer from the early days of the digital photography age.
Andy likes to get the walking kit on, load up for the day & head out into the countryside and hills to shoot landscapes these days but still
goes to the odd weekend Twinshock meet to shoot the action.
He spent 12 years with Pelling & Cross Photographic Ltd, which is now known as Calumet and 13 years with Bob Rigby Photographic Ltd, he built up many relationships over the years and has a vast weath of knowledge to pass on.
He is now training with Andrew Smith of SG Photography to become a camera operator shooting Stills & 4K video from a drone flown by Andrew Smith in a joint operation between SG & Landscapedays.
