I run a series of Brecon Beacons photography Workshops. However, due to the pandemic, I have scaled back the volume and number of workshop partcipants. For the short term, I will run single or two person workshops in the Brecon Beacons. These days or half days can still range from ascending the mountains of the Brecon Beacons to low-level waterfall experiences. Extreme or a little more sedate, the choice is still yours!
Locations are made suitable for all individuals and can be tailored to your specific requirements. I climb mountains, follow river courses, head to secret waterfall locations and enjoy the still and quiet of reservoirs. It’s all here in the Beacons Beacons. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you through our amazing park.

Brecon Beacons Landscape Photography tuition
A landscape photography tuition day led by Neil Mansfield. Neil has worked in the Brecon Beacons making photographs for a number of years. Neil has worked as a volunteer warden for the Brecon Beacons National Park, so he knows his way around! We can base ourselves in a local location close to your home/holiday stay. Or we can choose an area in the Brecon Beacons that has a plethora of opportunities to photograph. It’s entirely up to you. Weather doesn’t put Neil off, in fact photographing the Brecon Beacons in poor weather can be even more rewarding.
Get in touch to tailor a day to suit your requirements. Neil is very happy to help put together an unforgettable day of photography tuition. Any questions please get in touch.

We will tailor the day to suit your needs, from the very basic settings to, through the use of filters and composition. I actively encourage rule-breaking. Don’t expect to follow magazine tips you might have read about. This is about getting out into the field and really practising your craft.

I went on a one to one day’s tuition with Neil, he is so knowledge of when is the best time to visit the various beautiful landscapes of the Brecon National Park to get the maximum out of the light . Neil is very patient in explaining the concepts and the technical aspects of photography. I learnt so much more about composition, how to get the best out of my camera features and most importantly to take my time on where is the best angle for the shot ensuring I am maximizing the natural light and that it takes a few attempts by making small changes to your camera settings to get the perfect picture that you want.
I had an incredible day out with Neil 1:1 in the Brecon Beacons in September. He listened carefully to what I wanted to get out of the day and worked out a game plan for the day. My preference was to focus on the more artistic side of the game as I already had a good understanding of the basics (mainly the exposure triangle and how to drive my camera). We spent a full day visiting various different sites, with Neil encouraging and challenging me to find the shot at each one. At each site we then spent time reviewing the photos I’d taken to better understand what was working well and what wasn’t. Neil is a natural teacher and good fun to spend the day with. I learnt far more in the space of a day than I have in years of buying the latest gadget or new lens. After the day Neil followed up with an extensive set of observations on my style and technique and listed some key areas for me to continue working on. I intend to book another day out with him next year, hopefully by which time I’ll have had a chance to put some of his tips in to practice.
My girlfriend and I spent a day with Neil in the Brecon Beacons. We are both novices when it comes to photography and wanted to learn the basics, whilst taking photos. Neil is a fantastic teacher, who helped us understand the fundamentals of how to composes a photo. Then moving on and explaining the exposure triangle. By the end of the day we were both off of ‘green mode’ (full auto mode) and using the manual settings. Neil explained everything really well, with great enthusiasm. He also has a lot of knowledge regarding the Brecon Beacons and took us to some amazing locations. I would highly recommend his services and look forward booking another course with him in the future.
“Fantastic and knowledgeable tutor, Neil is understanding and tailored a day to suit my exact requirements. I will book again with Neil. Thanks for a fantastic day out”
