National Trust Photography Day

Last Friday I ran my second photography workshop for the National Trust at Hardcastle Crags.  I'm quite new to this sort of thing, but I am thoroughly enjoying it!

I was joking the other day that Hardcastle Crags has almost become my second office, I do seem to spend quite a lot of my time down there.  There's always something new to discover, and I love how it changes through the seasons.  It's the perfect spot to run a photography workshop.
We spent time in the lovely cafe in Gibson Mill, discussing different ways to make our photos stand out, and developing our styles as photographers.  Then we took our cameras and ideas outside to try a different approach in capturing an image.

It was great for us all to share our photography stories.

And discuss where we'd like to take our photography in the future!

I am always inspired by people talking about their photographs, what they like taking pictures of, and the stories behind the images they take.  I'm really looking forward to running more workshops in the future!

If you'd like to come along, the National Trust have asked me back to run a series of Photography Days in 2013.  I'll be posting news about these.  Or if you'd like to join my mailing list, please drop an email to


  1. Sarah, your photography is so inspiring and I LOVE the work you have done for Hannah. If you were ever to do a workshop further south, please let me know, I would really love to attend one. Belinda

  2. Belinda - what a lovely message, thank you! And may I say how much I'm loving discovering your amazing work, your inspiration, and all those beautiful photos!! Would love to do a few workshops further afield - maybe one day!
