Location:              North York Moors or Yorkshire Dales

Tutors:                 Joe Cornish & Mark Banks

Level:                   Intermediate & Advanced

Group size:          10 maximum

Time:                   10:00 - Late


Spend a day with Joe Cornish and Mark Banks improving your photography and learning about Joe's work process in a small informal group.

This workshop is ideally suited to intermediate and advanced level photographers.

The emphasis is on understanding subtleties of light and composition, and how to make the most of your time in the landscape. Additionally, technique, camera-craft and post-production are fundamental to the making of high quality photographs, and this philosophy will be taught through the course of the day.

You will be tutored in camera craft, with the main focus being on dealing with Britain’s elusive weather and lighting conditions. The course will help your technique, sense of composition, understanding of light, and (for advanced photographers) developing an individual style. Feedback is given on a one-to-one basis throughout the day.


This workshop will meet at a location either on the western edges of the North York Moors or the Yorkshire Dales, relatively close to Northallerton.

(We will confirm the exact location by email 2-3 weeks before the workshop date).

After an initial welcome meeting with Joe and Mark you will spend the rest of the day in the field. It is possible that you may visit multiple locations throughout the day but transport to and from the meeting point will be provided.

What to bring:

You should bring the camera equipment that you would normally use.

Below is a small list of the type of equipment that is helpful for creative landscape photography but none is compulsory (apart from the camera).


  • Camera with a fully charged battery (or two)
  • Tripod,
  • Spirit level - hotshoe spirit levels are cheap and useful (if your camera already has one built in that is fine)
  • Lens Cloth
  • Graduated Neutral Density Filters if you use them (If you do not then do not worry)

If all this sounds alien please don’t worry as Joe and Mark will have back up equipment and will help you every step of the way!

Your safety is of paramount importance to us therefore we ask that you bring weatherproof clothing, plenty of layers and suitable walking shoes/boots.
Please also bring all the food and drink you need for the day: take into consideration that you may be out until after dusk. 
A notebook and pen might be useful, although course notes will also be supplied.
If you rely on medication please be sure to bring these with you - including inhalers, epi-pens etc…
The workshop group is limited to 10 to enable each participant to receive plenty of help, support and feedback throughout the day from Joe and Mark.

“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.”
