Learn all about landscape photography in Buttermere, the Lake District, alongside Carl Hare — FUJIFILM UK Product Specialist.
Before we share the details of our landscape photography workshop, let’s get to know more about the photography guide who will be accompanying you on this exciting event in the Lake District.
Carl Hare is a Fujifilm UK Product Specialist and Freelance Photographer based in Hampshire, UK. Carl started out his photography life as a wedding and event photographer but has since expanded his photographic skills into many genres. Carl has a great passion for the outdoors and has been teaching photography courses and workshops on many different genres of photography since 2014.
These days Carl is just as comfortable shooting headshots in a studio, teaching lighting techniques for portraits, as he is on the streets of London or shooting landscapes and wildlife in the depths of winter in the Arctic.
