Are you new to digital photography and wanting to advance your photography skills to the next level?

Alternatively you may just be out of practice and fancy a refresher to get you back on track.

About the workshop:

This One-Day course is led by our experienced tutor Mark Banks and will be focused on landscape photography. However many of the basic techniques are transferable to all types of photography.

The group size on this workshop is limited to just 5 participants to enable plenty of one-to-one tuition and help and support will be provided throughout the day.

Meeting here at the gallery, we will begin with refreshments and an introductory briefing before tuition begins. Mark will start by looking at your camera’s basic functions and settings, and how to use them to the best advantage for the subject you are photographing. You will also discuss focusing methods and composition before heading out on location to put the theory into practice.

From the gallery, Mark will take participants to one of the many inspirational locations on our doorstep, in either the North York Moors, or Yorkshire Dales. Tuition will continue with individual feedback provided throughout the day to help you translate what you learn directly into your images. 

At the end of the day Mark will bring everybody back to the gallery in Northallerton.

What to bring:

Just bring the camera equipment that you would normally use.
Please bring a packed lunch and drink (take into account that you could be out until sunset depending on the weather). You should also have warm clothing, comfortable footwear, an umbrella and any medication necessary. Wellington boots would also be advisable just in case we end up near water.

The workshop group is limited to 5 to enable each participant to receive plenty of help and support.


• Be tutored in your camera's basic functions and settings
• Learn how to use your camera to best advantage for the subject you are photographing
• Receive individual feedback throughout the day

About your tutor:

Tutor Mark Banks is an experienced and talented workshop leader, in addition to being a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society. He has been hosting One-Day workshops for the gallery and assisting Joe with our Residential Workshop programme for over a decade.

“Mark Banks is quite simply one of the best teachers of photography I have ever met. His secret is an apparently endless supply of patience, and an acute analytical approach to developing systematic problem-solving tactics in photography, which he makes effortless and fun to learn, whether in the field or in the editing suite. Mark’s artistry, empathy, kindness and charm mean he is always a joy to work with, or to be taught by.” Joe Cornish
