Leading Lights Tours
What is Leading Lights?
We have been delighted to reintroduce our ‘Leading Lights’ exclusive micro learning group series during 2014 and also for 2015. Whilst we like to take pride in maintaining our small group policy, we have received some requests to offer within the Light & Land catalogue a number of ‘Leading Lights’ workshops where the group numbers no more than four photographers per tutor.
It is always of great concern to Light & Land leaders that our photography guests are provided with all the guidance and instruction that they need or request and to this end, each leader ensures that every participant on their tour or workshop returns home feeling that they have learnt a great deal more about the craft and approach to landscape photography than they did prior to the start of the tour.
However, there are some photographers who would prefer to be part of a very small group where the learning approach is more intensive and demanding and where the leader photographer is able to offer constant ‘hands-on guidance’ allowing them an opportunity to work in depth with each individual photographer in addition to working with the group on a collective basis.
During a tour or workshop, students of photography enjoy inspiration from observing the craft and practices of the leader and on a ‘four group Leading Lights' workshop it is obviously much easier for the leader to discuss and express the principles and craft behind their work.
If you would like to join a Leading Lights workshop, then the requirement would simply be a complete understanding of the workings of the camera and the desire and commitment needed to attend the three-day workshop.

- The Lake District - Print and Leading Lights
