4 hour Cotswold Tour & Workshop

There is so much to see in the Cotswolds and when you only visit for a few days or even a week it will be very difficult to choose where to go.  Hidden gems that will amaze you, backdrops that are just stunning and unspoiled villages that rarely get visitors. 

Where to go...

I have incorporated a 4 hour tour of 3-4 locations that I know will invoke your emotions.  During this tour you will be driven to each location passing much of the beautiful landscapes on the way.  The tour also offers those that like to use a camera the opportunity to discuss new ways on how improve your pictures.  For beginners who are just starting out in photography you will learn basic camera settings.  Packed from start to finish I guarantee you won't be disappointed.       

We will go through all the basics to ensure you can take photos as we go enjoy some stunning locations.  It doesn't matter what camera you have I will guaranteed 100% satisfaction of taking some amazing photos!

In the four hours we will cover everything that makes up photography;

  • LIGHT

1 Hour of Image Post Processing Workshop for beginners

Every Thursday 19:00 till 20:00

Image processing should never have to be a daunting task but yet many photographers shy away from it.  Yet in fact, it is one of the most important parts of photography and it becomes part of the final jigsaw piece to creating a beautiful image.  We are not talking about heavy saturation or adding extra skylines to make it what it wasn't.  We're talking about simple exposure adjustments, white balance,  cropping,  colour and light corrections.  However, there are times when the camera can't quite see what your eyes see so we need to learn how to invoke emotion through some simply adjustments. 

  • FILE IMPORTS & SAVING
  • FILE FORMATS (RAW, TIFFS, PNG & JPEG)
  • WORKFLOW
  • EXPOSURE
  • WHITE BALANCE
  • COLOUR
  • VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL 
  • CROPPING
  • SHARING & EDITING YOUR OWN IMAGES
  • MORE...

With over 13 years of image processing experience with artistic background I am now offering an online post processing workshop.  This one hour workshop for beginners will teach you how to use Lightroom & Photoshop,  how to import files and work through 100s of images at the same time.  most importantly I will show how to change each image based on its available light and composition.

It's frustrating for me to see so many photographers not reaching their potential because they know little about post processing.  START learning by joining me on any Thursday evening between 19:00 and 20:00 for just £10

Vijaya Gangiraju Cotswold Photography Tour 17.09.17

Cotswold Photography Tour 17th September 2017-1001.JPG

“Tour was very well organised and you are second to none when it comes to hosting and photography. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone hoping to improve your photography skill set.  I listen to Anthony about photography as art, taking great photos of Cotswold's and above all explore the hidden jewels of Cotswold's in the comfort of a 4 X 4. Not only did he show me all of the best photo spots, Tony guided me in terms of camera settings, location, lighting, exposure, leading lines and more to capture stunning photos of Cotswold's. The best thing about this tour is you can continue to use the knowledge going forward. Thank you Anthony, for your enthusiasm and willingness to share your passion and knowledge of photography”

If you are visiting the Cotswolds and enjoy photography then Anthony's tour is a must. We had a fantastic time and saw areas that we wouldn't have seen otherwise.   Anthony is extremely knowledgeable about the region and his passion for photography is infectious. 5 stars.
