Landscape Photography Tuition

This workshop does not include traditional landscape photography, although it can be included as an extra (to be agreed on booking).

Nightscape Photography Tuition

Night sky and landscape astrophotography field work and planning tuition is included and tailored to your skill level, as is the post editing.


The nightscape 1-2-1 tuition session is suitable for all levels of photographer, from complete beginner to professional.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or an accomplished photographer looking to take your night work to another level, the tuition given whilst partaking in a 1-2-1 session will be based on your requirements, with you setting the pace.  

Trek to familiar, or unfamiliar, locations, under perfect dark skies, let your eyes adjust and see the world in a different light, then use your camera to paint it that way.  

The course will help you push your camera gear as far as possible, and show you how to achieve results exactly like the images within Ollie’s nightscape galleries; the learning experience is well-structured and provides step-by-step techniques that, on top of good planning (also taught), will guarantee you results every time.  The two day/night tuition also covers a well structured post editing session on Lightroom and Photoshop.

Furthermore, the structured format will help you generate the same style of images every time you shoot, thus helping you create a polished, professional standard portfolio as you venture out on future shoots.

Landscape astrophotography tuition will be the main focus of the workshop along with the Milky Way unless otherwise agreed.

Moonlight and general nightscape tuition alongside winter 1-2-1s available

Ollie will discuss local landmarks with you and advise what type of results may be achieved at each location, and at the given time of year.

The course can also be delivered to any chosen location/area worldwide*, larger pre-formed groups on request*, educational facilities* and camera clubs*.  

Longer duration than advertised tuition sessions can be arranged on request and all required equipment and camera gear needed is discussed on initial booking/enquiry.

Ollie has over 15 years experience within the landscape photography industry and started shooting nightscapes late 2012, in 2014 he set up the first landscape astrophotography workshops in the UK and continues to run them very successfully across Europe.

Ollie is based in Dorset for a few months a year, however by and large, he is virtually location independent, and on his travels, he spends large periods of time within a specific location. Below are the locations throughout the UK and Europe which Ollie will be situated in throughout 2018, consequently he may be within your area, or holiday destination, at a time convenient to you.

Workshops can be delivered at other locations on request; naturally, this incurs travel and accommodation expenses and the majority of the south west is covered at £30 per hour of travel, from the Dorset border, on top of standard fee’s; unless advertised and undertaken in the time frames advertised below.

April/May – Dorset & Wider South West

Early June – Cornwall/Devon
