Location, subject, composition, creativity, shooting technique and gear are some of the ingredients that define an amazing landscape photograph. We will cover all these topics and many more. 

Planning your landscape photography will help you achieve better results. Learn how to research a location, its weather and season, and how to maximise your output by applying our proven approach.

Creativity is a huge part of producing work that is as individual as you are. Learn how to work a scene, the basic rules of composition that apply to it, and how to break them. You will acquire a wide range of techniques that will allow you to vastly expand your photographic comfort zone. At the end of the workshop you will have a practical overview of managing exposure, composition, focus, bracketing and filters.

Note: The Hero Landscapes workshop requires basic knowledge about shooting in manual mode.
