“Teaching the “art of photography” has been a great passion of mine for several years” – Mark Brion
“Having led many one-to-one and small groups on photography workshops and expeditions, I get considerable pleasure seeing our guest photographers expand their knowledge and skill levels whilst improving their images considerably”.
A hobby that started over twenty years ago became a passion. As an avid enthusiast of the great outdoors; photographing the natural world is his favoured genre.
During his photography workshops, Mark comes into contact with many photo enthusiasts of all differing levels of knowledge and expertise. He always finds the time to address individual requests, whilst covering a range of photographic subjects.
As such, he is aware of the subjects that most photo enthusiasts want to address during our time together. Some topics relate to photography tuition “in the field” and some to post production “tips and techniques“.
“Six years ago, I decided to start sharing my knowledge and skills in photography with others. So, I researched, organised and started to take like-minded enthusiasts on photography workshops and tours”.
Initially, these were held in beautiful locations solely in the UK. However, due to my love of travelling, I also started to take the workshops to destinations further afield overseas.
Mark’s workshops and tours encompass the natural world as his backdrop. Landscapes and seascapes, wildlife, lakes, woods, glaciers and even the odd volcano are all considered for his workshops and tours.
“Photographing wildlife in their natural habitat is important to me. I am also inspired by remote locations such as coasts, mountains, lakes, forests and even the odd volcano; where untamed land is sculpted by natural elements. In effect, the great outdoors is my office space!” – Mark Brion
“My range of workshops have been designed to offer the perfect combination of outstanding wildlife viewing, exceptional photography opportunities and expert tuition”.
“The spirit of adventure and exploration through a lens” – Mark Brion
His tutorship specialises in bringing the best advice, tips and techniques for photographing in beautiful and sometimes challenging locations. You will have plenty of opportunity to develop your technical skills through a series of informal workshops ‘in the field’.
During his workshops, Mark also provides Adobe Creative Cloud presentations showing guests the best tips and techniques for editing in post production. These presentations and critiquing guest photos are always very popular and tend to bond the groups as a result.
With years of experience teaching individuals and groups the “art of photography“, Mark applies a patient, friendly and not overly technical approach to his tuition. He is the ideal tutor to help develop you photography.
Mark enriches his workshop experience through his passionate presentations and informal discussions.
“All our photography workshops are based centrally within scenic locations. We provide the very best in accommodation, food, travel to locations and of course, high quality photography tuition. In addition, I will provide instruction, tips and techniques in post production to get the most from editing your images”.
“Every photography workshop and tour is an adventure in itself and I get to meet and teach some great like-minded enthusiasts along the way” – Mark Brion
Mark strongly believes there is no greater travel experience than exploring fantastic locations and subjects with a small group of like-minded people.
His photography programs are designed for amateur photographers of all levels, interested in improving their skills whilst exploring memorable and picturesque locations.
Since 2018, Mark has successfully led twenty-three photography workshops and expeditions to the following destinations including Iceland, Lofoten Islands, Norway, Svalbard, Faroe Islands, Scotland, Isle of Harris & Lewis, Isle of Skye, Lake District, Snowdonia and other locations in the UK.
Mark also leads small workshops, specifically designed for photographing wildlife in their natural habitats both in the UK and internationally.
These include marine mammals such as whales, dolphins and porpoises.
Other wildlife photography workshops include seals, bears, otters, puffins, birds of prey, penguins, kingfishers and owls … to name a few.
As a wildlife conservationist, Mark always adheres to the principles of eco-tourism where possible on all his workshops.
The workshops are suitable for any level of photographer, but we do recommend a basic kit list. Generally, this means a camera with the ability to work in manual settings, a sturdy tripod, a small set of lenses and a selection of filters.
As a general rule we will normally have between 4-6 photographers on our group workshops. This allows Mark to provide the very best tuition to all photographers, whatever their level of skills and knowledge.
“I love playing with light and long exposures. Capturing landscapes, seascapes, and photographing beautiful sunrise and sunset colours. For me that is when nature is at its best and it gives me a real BUZZ every time” – Mark Brion
