Lewis is now pleased to announce new photography workshops for the Brecon Beacons National Park in assioation with Brecon Mineral Water. As a Brecon Beacons Ambassador Lewis knows the park extremely well, living in the boundaries of the park gives him the chance to explore every corner, giving you the potential to capture images that are not normally photographed.

The park's geology is fascinating, along with the old settlements, history and weather, the Brecon Beacons is one of the best places in the UK to capture some of the most impressive lighting possible.

Lewis will be running 3 workshops during 2016 and 2017, the are designed to capture all the seasons of the Brecon Beacons.

Spring workshop.

This is a great time to capture the misty valley's of the National Park. we will be out early prior to sunrise at locations where we can get great views across the patchwork quilts and pastures. Clear nights and cooler temperatures can produces stunning images before and after sunrise. We will visit one of the waterfall areas and visit a number of iconic parts of the Brecon Beacons.



Summer Workshops.

These are unique workshops to the Brecon Beacons. We will be photographing the park from early evening, capturing the sunset's at locations that suit the time of year. We then carry on into the evening and well into the dark. The Brecon Beacons is a National park for dark skies, the summer months give us the best chance to photograph the stars and Milky Way where stunning images can be made.



Autumn Workshops.

With the leaves changing and winter approaching this is the best time to visit. Waterfalls and stunning vistas, along with the morning mist we will visit a number of locations chosen by Lewis for you to capture some of the most unique views of the national park.


About the workshops.

The workshops Lewis's runs are for all levels of photographer, they are set out to show what techniques are used to produce high quality images. We look at the difference between Raw and Jpeg files, Filters and filter systems when photographing in contrasting lighting conditions, and understanding how the weather can influence images. Lewis also looks into what lenses to use for certain situations from wide angle to zoom lenses, aperture's and shutter speeds. The main thing is the enjoyment of being in one of the UK's most beautiful photography destinations.



What you need.

Good footwear and clothing are essential, you also need to have good fitness levels as some of the terrain is a little unsteady, however we will not be venturing the highest peaks as parking and access to great viewpoints is easy to access. Most importantly your camera. This could be a basic point and shoot for people wanting to find out if they would like to progress with photography further, entry level or pro DSLR, or even film. Tripods, Neutral density filters, and polarisers will help but are not a complete necessity. Lenses from wide angle 14mm all the way up to 200mm will help to achieve great work.

If you do need any more info or are not sure then it is no problem to contact Lewis and he will advise you further.



Where You Stay

You will be staying at the Allt Bed And Breakfast with Anne and Shamus, who are also Ambassadors for the Brecon Beacons. Arriving on the Friday from 2pm or later you can venture into the lovely and popular village of Tallybont On Usk, where there are a number of pubs serving fine ales and great food.

You will receive a warm and extremely hospitable stay, but be warned Shamus does like to tell a joke or two. A full Welsh breakfast will be served on both mornings, with a pack lunch for during the day. Below is an image with the Allt nestled in the bottom of the valley.
