Join Adam in the beautiful Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, formerly known as the Brecon Beacons, for a 3 day Discovery Tour.  Bannau Brycheiniog is an area that Adam knows very well, having photographed the national park throughout four seasons for a coffee table book published in 2010.

On this tour, we will prioritise the beautiful rolling countryside, mountains and lakes on the eastern side of the national park, while also venturing over to explore the renowned waterfall area near Ystradfellte.   As well as shooting the popular landscape photography locations such as Llangorse Lake and the Llangattock Escarpment, Adam will also guide you to many of the national park's lesser known vistas. With the possibility of morning mist, seasonal colours, elegant waterfalls and rich autumnal light Bannau Brycheiniog is at its best during Autumn, while the shorter day length means we don't have such early starts and late finishes.

Our tour begins at midday on the first day, where after an initial short briefing we will head out for the rest of the day.  For the following two days we will aim to be shooting from sunrise through to sunset, returning to the hotel after sunrise for breakfast before heading out again late morning for the rest of the day.

With a maximum group number of only four participants, our chosen locations will be uncrowded ensuring everybody has access to shoot that special viewpoint.  Adam will encourage you to fully explore each location to find your own viewpoints and compositions, while helping you capture beautiful landscape photographs.

Our tours are aimed at everybody, from beginners looking for advice and encouragement through to experienced photographers wishing only to be guided to locations.  With such a small group, you can be assured of Adam’s attention, support and feedback throughout each location we visit.

Please note: This tour has been classified as requiring a moderate level of fitness.  Being a mountain area, several locations require uphill walks to reach the best viewpoints.  While steep in some places, the locations we will shoot from involve walks of no more than 20-30 minutes at most.

Accommodation

During this workshop, we will be based based at the Manor Hotel in Crickhowell.  Situated on the edge of the charming and elegant market town of Crickhowell, the family-owned Manor Hotel boasts unparalleled views of the surrounding valley and the ancient fortress of Table Mountain.  Each guest will enjoy single occupancy in a double bedroom with en-suite facilities.  For more information about the hotel please visit the hotel website.

Recommendations

"As you know, I said that I hope to get one photo per day that I regard as "great". Well, on this workshop, I have achieved one photo every location we stopped in. That's 13 "great" shots for me. That's down to your knowledge, experience and guidance at each location. This is one of the best workshops I have attended and that's down to you. Your coaching and support was great. Just watching you create your own images was educational. I will definitely try to attend some of your other workshops."

Mark, Anglesey & Snowdonia Discovery Tour (2023)

"We had a wonderful time, weather was kind to us and hopefully some good images. As always your workshops are really enjoyable and much appreciate the planning and care you take and, as with others in the past, cannot fault them at all. Very much looking forward to being on another in future. I need to be more on the ball as they are generally booked up by the time I hear of them."

Chris, Yorkshire Dales Discovery Tour (2023)

"Thank you for the excellent tours this year. Your efforts to get us in the best locations for the conditions were outstanding. Always consulting, always giving options and taking all the group along with the decisions that were made. The weather could have been kinder but I don’t think we missed a location and made an image wherever we went. You are an excellent teacher but you also give people space to try things for themselves."

Suzanne - Various Discovery Tours

"Adam. I Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic day on Thursday. It has to be the best money I have ever spent on anything photographic, by a long way. Not only has my landscape photography improved, it is now on a different level, as is my technique overall."
