Is there much walking?
Obviously there will be some walking but most locations are within easy reach of roads. I find that most landscape photographers are pretty fit anyhow
Is this just going to be a boring history lesson?
No - history properly taught is never boring because these battlefields are the story of all our families! These are places where our ancestors underwent every experience and emotion known to man and sadly, many of them died in the process. As a guide, I want to tell you the tales of some of these men so you can better understand the history of this landscape and what happened there - then as a photographer I want to show you the landscape and so that together we can combine the history, the emotion and the landscape to produce great pictures.
I love going to battlefields but I'm not a very good photographer. Technically will it be too advanced for me?
Absolutely not. Anyone with a camera who wants to learn about landscape photography will benefit from these courses. Because the numbers are kept deliberately small you can be assured of personal tuition at all times,
I've been on a battlefield tour before and all we visited were cemeteries and memorials. Will your course be doing the same?
Certainly not - obviously we will visit certain cemeteries but that is really because properly photographed a war cemetery makes an incredibly powerful statement about the cost and futility of war. But within a landscape, cemeteries often tell their own particular story about the battle at that point so obviously they will have a part to play in our visit but most of the time you will be in open country looking at the whole sweep of the landscape and the events it experienced.
