Without doubt there are many tour and workshop providers out there offering trips to beautiful parts of the UK and around the world, so why choose aspect2i?
We have been running photography tours and workshops for over a decade now and we are proud of our track record of happy clients that come back year after year. The reason for this is that we are there for the photographers who travel with us. All too often we hear accounts of photographers that travel with a workshop group only to find that their leader is more interested in what they want from the trip than what his/her group may want to learn or experience.
We have a passion and excel at passing on knowledge. It sounds simple but many photographers want to return home from a workshop having learned new skills, become better photographers and have the photographs to show for it. Our leaders do not stand over you every minute of the day, but they are always there, on hand to help and pass on their years of experience and expertise in landscape photography.
Because there are so many different aspects of landscape photography, and people like to learn in differing ways, we have always considered this. Our Tours take you to experience and be awestruck in some of the best, most dramatic landscapes in the world and the UK were being in the right place at the right time is our main aim. Our Retreats are very different indeed. If you come along on a Retreat you will be in luxury accommodation with like minded photographers, in small groups were the conversations and sharing of photographic ideas and projects is as important as being out with your camera during your time away.
Our Advanced Workshops focus on sharing the most in depth, up to date technical aspects of photography. As technique and technology consistently make advances, we too move with the times which puts us at the forefront of modern digital photography. Our online courses are another example of tailoring to photographers needs. Sometimes with a busy life full of commitments, it can be difficult to get to time away and this is why we have designed a selection of online courses aimed at certain skills and creativity.
We feel that a tour or workshop is something you have looked forward to and worked hard for so we want you to be a comfortable as possible. We do not hire bunkhouses or houses with shared facilities as we believe that after an exciting day out in the field, you want your own space and comfort so carefully chosen hotels is all part of your experience when traveling with us.
Lastly, we like to have fun and for all the group to enjoy their time with us. Our tours and workshops are not endurance tests, they are experiences with you and your camera that we want you to remember for many years to come.
"Ask yourself this question. Are your finished images the best they can be?"
It is all too easy to make many trips out over the years to beautiful places in the world and return with hundreds of camera files that are hardly ever get looked at, or some that are processed, but never really look like the moment you were stood there with your camera. There are always skills to be learned out in the field, but there are often a lot more to be learned when you are sitting in front of your computer.
"Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field". Peter Adams
