This three day residential break explores the majestic scenery of Snowdonia's mountains, whilst also offering streams, waterfalls, lakes and much more.

On The Day

Day One

Snowdonia National Park has an abundance of photographic opportunities. With our help, this photographic break will give you the knowledge and knowhow to create and capture amazing landscape images at almost every angle. The experience mainly revolves around practical application, however day one will begin with a brief introduction and theory session in order to successfully plan the next few days. The Academy tutor will guide you through which settings to consider and how to achieve the very best composition. After a brief practice shoot, we will then make our way to the first sunset location - South Stack lighthouse, Anglesey. Transport to and from our locations will be fully provided by the tutor, in a dedicated Jessops Academy vehicle.

Day Two

Day two will begin with sunrise at the famous "Lone Tree" at Llyn Padarn. We'll then continue photographing throughout the day at some of the area's most stunning valleys, streams and a beautiful waterfall. We'll finish the day with another sunset at a fantastic location.

Day Three

Day three will start with sunrise at the iconic Llandudno Pier, followed by a photographic walk of Dinorwig Quarry - a little quirky area of abandoned buildings and machinery
