Sam and fellow landscape photographer Mark Sunderland met in 2006 and in 2011 set up The Natural Light Photography Workshops.

"We have developed some full-day and weekend photography courses at a number of Yorkshire’s most enigmatic locations. It's our aim to help those wanting to develop their photographic skills of all levels, so that each countryside walk can be captured in landscape images to treasure for years to come."

The workshops set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales teach composition, exposure and how to get the most from your camera out of auto mode, followed by a session on Lightroom and Photoshop to create beautiful fine art prints.

Groups are restricted to a maximum of six participants giving plenty of time for one-to-one tuition with two photographers on hand.
