We are delighted to announce that we are working with the famous East Lancashire Railway to offer steam train photography courses.
The new venture provides photographers with the opportunity to capture vintage steam and diesel engines, stunning scenery and behind the scenes settings in areas not open to the public in friendly, tutor led photography workshops.
The full-day courses have a maximum capacity of six people and are suitable for photographers of all abilities, with tutoring on camera modes, techniques, composition and post-production; tailored to individual requirements.
What’s On Our Steam Train Photography Courses?
Courses are a full-day experience starting at 9:30am with welcome refreshments and finishing at 5:00pm with a review of the day’s images. Throughout the day participants will gain knowledge on how to get the best out of their camera and can test out newly acquired techniques at some of the most picturesque spots along the line, as well as getting up close to the engines in areas not open to the public.
Sales Manager at ELR, Richard Barnett, has spoken about the new venture; “As a railway we are very lucky to have so many great photo opportunities along our twelve mile route and are delighted to offer visitors the chance to enhance their knowledge, skills and portfolios with the help of North West Photography Courses. The courses are great for photographers of all abilities and are an ideal gift for a loved one – we are sure they will be a hit and look forward to seeing the results from attendees over the next few months.”
2014 photography courses will run on selected dates from July – November to allow participants to capture the railway through the changing seasons. Full-day, expert led courses, which include a sandwich lunch, are available at £120.00 per adult and must be pre-booked. The first course is scheduled for Wednesday 23rd July.
