If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a nature photographer or feel that you’re just not getting the best
out of your camera, then this might just be the experience for you!
Two days of photography training with Derbyshire based nature photographer Guy Badham.
Guy is a partner photographer for Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire and is used extensively by
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

The idea of the training is to make you feel more confident when using your equipment in an outdoor
situation, giving you tips and hints on how to improve your work and turning your ‘snaps’ into ‘art’.
Mount Cook Adventure Centre is a great place for nature photography, being surrounded by beautiful
and varied countryside, including the dramatic Black Rocks, Tranquil Cromford Canal and historic
Middleton Top. There is potential for a wide range of nature photography, from birds and animals, landscape and lots to suit many people’s interests.
