Speed & Motion Photography Workshop

Poster 2 LR.jpg



A one-day workshop to put you in control of your camera, in the picturesque setting of Lindale. Learn from professional photographer, Daniel Parker, how to capture those beautiful, eye-catching images of movement. You will be shown how to utilise shutter speed to produce motion blur in a creative, artistic way.

About the workshop

Spend the morning at Greywalls Studio, Lindale, exploring the controls of your camera with the emphasis very much on shutter speeds and effects. 

After lunch we will head outdoors to High Dam, near Newby Bridge, a beautiful location set in woodlands with a beck flowing down from the dam, where we will take photos to put into practice the theory from the morning.  To finish off the day we will return to the studio to look at the results.
