photoworkshopwales is located in a former mining village of Ystradgynlais. Our base, is situated on the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons National Park, in south Wales. It is an ideal location to be, with the south Wales valleys and its industrial past offering unique photo opportunities, the wonderful Black Mountain range with outstanding features, and indeed the area boasts the highest mountain in the south of Great Britain, Pen y fan. Amongst all of these oppotunities, are glorious waterfalls & reservoirs - a must for our participants attending the photographic workshops.
If this is not enough, we have outstanding photographers and tutors to guide you through the technicalities and stimulate your creativity, to learn and obtain the most from your photography.
