Coast and Country ITV Brecon Beacons Landscape Photography
Three years ago I was lucky enough to be featured on ITV’s Coast and Country. It was a fantastic opportunity to promote the Brecon Beacons National park and also talk a little bit about photography.
The producer (Helen) wanted to film three areas where an amateur photographer could focus on in order to improve their photography. I selected the following three for the programme:
- Using a tripod
- Leading lines
- Looking at smaller details
We spent a wonderful day exploring the Beacons and visited the Waterfalls, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad and Mynydd Illtud common to focus on these three areas. There was snow on the hills and low mist and fog, so wide mountainous vistas weren’t possible. The weather gave us rain, mist and snow, almost a perfect landscape photography day! If you want to watch and listen to the programme including reviewing the final three photographs we selected (and a nice Ansel Adams quote to finish the wrap up the shoot) then you can watch below.
The programme was broadcast on ITV a few years ago, but I haven’t found time to write a brief blog on the feature, Nicola has just finished presenting a further programme for ITV in the Brecon Beacons with a rather fantastic title Beacons Uncovered! We love the name, Nicola! A real pleasure to work with such a fantastic team, thanks to all especially Helen and Nicola.
If you would like your own personalised tuition day, I am available for one to one sessions throughout the year and all over the Brecon Beacons. Please get in touch if this is of any interest to you, you can read more about one of these days here
