Join award-winning landscape photographer Jason Friend on a ‘one-on-one’ (or ‘one-on-two’ should you wish to share the workshop with a friend) private landscape photography workshop in Newcastle Upon Tyne or Tyne & Wear. Learn new skills and develop your compositional eye under the guidance of an award winning landscape photographer. Private tuition is a great way to kick-start your photography hobby or fine tune your skills before you take the plunge to turn your hobby into the dream job.
Private photography tuition is a flexible approach to learning and exploring your photography. Based around a four, six or eight hour day, you can actually choose the locations that you want to visit and photograph or leave the decision making to Jason, and let him offer you private tuition in some of the best scenery to be found in the counties of Cumbria, Northumberland, North Yorkshire, Scottish Borders and Tyne & Wear. City or rural, coast or uplands – You decide!
Private workshops run weekly throughout the year and you can state your preferred date for the workshop during the booking process. Once we have received your booking we will contact you to arrange the location and times. In the event of your preferred date not being available, we will offer you a number of alternative dates. Should these dates not be suitable, we will refund your payment and cancel the booking.
Tyne & Wear Photography Tuition
Tyne and Wear is a region where the past, present and future combine to form an eclectic melting pot in the north east of England. Situated between the Northumberland and Durham Heritage Coasts, the coastline adjoining the North Sea is understandably beautiful, and whilst there are some stretches of the coast that display the marvels of human endeavour to tame nature, there are plenty of other stretches that embrace the power of the wild and maintain their natural appearance.
Unquestionably, the heart of Tyneside is the River Tyne, the main artery running from the coast dividing the regions of north and south Tyneside on a journey through the city of Newcastle and beyond. Life on the Tyne has changed throughout the years. The Romans exploited the strategic values of the river by choosing to start the spectacular Hadrian’s Wall alongside the Tyne, along with a number of forts that can still be found in Tyneside.
Recently the face of the Tyne has had a facelift in the means of an ongoing redevelopment plan that has seen a number of luxury apartments, modern architecture and world-class tourist attractions adorn the river. Inland Tyneside is host to a plethora of landscapes including picturesque villages, working agricultural land and sites of historical importance.
Join Jason Friend on a photography workshop and let him share his intimate knowledge of the region – gained from numerous years photographing the highlights of this often overlooked region.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we are no longer offering group landscape photography workshops, however the one-on-one nature of our photography tuition allows us to safely offer private landscape photography tuition whilst adhering to the government guidelines regarding social distancing and the use of face masks. Private photography tuition participants are not required to wear face masks as the tuition is entirely based outside, but Jason will wear a face mask for the duration of the tuition to ensure your safety during the private landscape photography tuition session.
Based in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in England’s North-East, Jason Friend is an award-winning professional photographer that specialises in commercial, stock and travel photography.
