Location Information

Nestled in the heart of England, the Peak District stands as an impressive and diverse National Park offering abundant photographic opportunities year-round. This one-day workshop is timed to coincide with the annual heather display that decorates the landscapes in late summer.

Encompassing 542 square miles, the Peak District ranks amongst the UK’s most visited National Parks, drawing in around 20 million visitors annually. A captivating characteristic of this region is the stark contrast between its two geological areas known as the Dark and White Peak. The northern Dark Peak boasts brooding heather-covered moorlands, embellished with dramatic rock outcrops. In contrast, the southern White Peak features softer limestone scenery, showcasing upland sheep pastures, dry-stone walls, and rustic barns.
