1 – What will I learn on the Snowdonia Mono Masterclass?
The objective of the Snowdonia Mono Masterclass is to inspire and inform. The benefits of the masterclass for you will be a better understanding of what you want to say photographically and how to tell it effectively. You will be inspired and enabled to express yourself clearly as a photographer.
This is not a “how to” course. It is therefore expected that participants have a working knowledge of their digital equipment.

3 – The Snowdonia Mono Masterclass is in three parts
1 The Viewfinder Tutorial
- Use of the camera viewfinder – The Advanced ABC of CameraWork
- Ways of improving seeing skills
- Based on the ABC of CameraWork Manual by Andy Beel
The viewfinder tutorial is based on the advanced ABC of CameraWork method of seeing. You will receive a copy of The ABC of CameraWork Manual before the Masterclass to study and familiarise yourself with the topics to be presented on the masterclass.
Also included in the cost of the Snowdonia Mono Masterclass is a one-day LGE Introduction to Photographic Seeing in Georgian Bath or Bristol Harbour that you will hopefully attend before the masterclass.
2 Taking pictures in the magnificent Snowdonia National Park
The sheer variety of subject matter on offer in Snowdonia is a wonder in itself. Everything from the close-in landscape to giant vistas along with lakes, railways, slate quarries, waterfalls, outdoor sports, trees and of course plenty of sheep all in close-proximity to each other. This means that we are never very far from a picture shoot with long travel times. In the mountains, the weather and light will be changeable offering the expressive photographer a wide range of opportunities in a short space of time.
3 Picture Reviews
Picture reviews are an essential part of the learning process for you. The carefully selected picture locations are a bonus but not the be all and end all of the masterclass. If you are to progress as an expressive photographer, the picture reviews are there to provide positive feedback on how well you have understood and achieved the artistic or technical topic discussed earlier in the tutorial. Picture reviews will be carried out quickly and easily using a large image to critique.
4 – You will have the opportunity to take pictures like these on the
Snowdonia Mono Masterclass
The critiquing sessions were invaluable and I think we all benefited from seeing examples of each other’s work. I am sure all of us discovered something new in Lightroom and how this could be applied to our post-processing workflow in the future.
All in all an excellent week on so many levels and for me the size of the group was just perfect, particularly as we could all get around in one vehicle.”

6 – Is the Snowdonia Mono Masterclass for me?
The Snowdonia Mono Masterclass must be one of the most photographically rewarding masterclasses to have been developed. The scope of the masterclass includes unusual locations, structured tutorials and demonstrations as well as constructive reviews in a small group that allows plenty of time for individual tuition.
