If the Coronavirus Pandemic has taught me anything, it’s the mental health benefits of being out and about in the countryside enjoying landscape photography.
I believe passionately that landscape photography is a great way to relax, take in the world around you and exercise your creative side. So, from Summer 2021, I’m determined to help people develop the skills needed to safely get out in the great outdoors and take incredible photographs by running regular Guided Photowalks & Photo workshops.

How does it work?
Free gratuity based Photowalks will be available throughout the year and upcoming walks will be advertised on my website. On these walks there is no upfront fee, turn up and at the end of the walk pay whatever you feel the walk was worth with no expectation. Free gratuity based walks will last between 2/3 hours, and will be run in Merseyside.
Solo Workshops are designed to focus on the areas of photography you’d like to work on. These workshops last from 4-8 hours depending on your needs and can be run anywhere across the UK, though I usually run these in Snowdonia, the Lake District and the Peak District. You can read more about solo workshops here.
My Group photowalks can be pre-booked for an upfront fee and include an online planning session before the walk to meet the group and plan the route. These walks usually run for approximately 5 hours and will take place in Snowdonia, the Peak District and Lake District. Though all my routes have a photography focus group walks are more about getting out into the hills and experiencing our incredible scenary safely.
So whether you are a complete beginner looking to get to grips with your camera or a photography enthusiast looking to be shown around the best spots to shoot a group Photowalk is ideal. Your needs will be discussed in advance to ensure the route is run to cover what you’d like to learn or the places you’d like to visit. For more information about Group Photowalks please click here.

What will I get out of a Neon Light Photowalk?
I want as many people as possible to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, my photo walks are designed with two primary objectives –
- Give you great subjects to photograph in some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK.
- Help you improve your photography and navigation skills so you can take incredible photographs safely.
Most of my walks are 4-5 hours across a range of terrain and are tailored to those taking part. Before we go we’ll have a short zoom planning session to ensure everyone knows the route and has the right equipment. It’s also an opportunity to find out exactly what each participant is looking to get out of the day.
Who are the walks for?
Neon Light Photowalks are ideal for amateur photographers looking to improve their skills, as well as more experienced photographers looking for new places and routes to walk. The walks are designed to be an opportunity to learn from each other and share experiences in a relaxed enjoyable walk in the countryside.

Terms and Conditions
For Neon Light Photo walks a £10 deposit is required per person booking to secure your place. Places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis to the first 8 people to pay the deposit. In both cases, the remaining fee is due 7 days before the walk.
All participants must be over the age of 18 on the day of the walk to take part.
By booking a place and paying the deposit, participants confirm that they are fit and healthy enough to complete their booked route. Please see the route details on the event page and confirm you can complete the route before booking.
Although I will be leading the route we walk, you are responsible for your own safety and equipment for the duration of the walk. I cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage of equipment or injury to participants.
To ensure safety, if adverse weather conditions are forecast the workshop may need to be cancelled or rescheduled to an alternative date/time. Along with checking weather conditions before the day, we will also review conditions throughout the day and may decide to change our route if the weather requires it. Some routes are not safe in some conditions, so I cannot guarantee to visit any requested location.
Neon Light will offer an alternative suitable date for the walk to take place in the unlikely event of cancellation. If a participant withdraws causing an event to be cancelled no refund will be offered.
Covid-19 Restrictions – If a local or national travel ban is in place during the date of the workshop, an alternative date will be arranged. If a participant cannot take part due to a requirement to isolate, either by testing positive for COVID19 or because of a request by Test & Trace, the booking for that participant may be transferred to an alternate date in the future.
