- Creating a stunning photograph isn’t about having an expensive camera or all the right gear. It’s about taking inspiration from what you see and genuinely capturing the moment. Through Northumberland Photo Training I teach the art of natural photography. I’ll share my enthusiasm for the natural world and show you how to focus on the ‘life’ in a landscape. You’ll learn about atmosphere and light, how to see the potential in a location and take beautiful photographs which document the narrative in front of you. I offer bespoke photo workshops to suit all skill levels and interests – from the basics of digital photography through to advanced techniques and digital post-production, which is taught in a purpose-built computer suite using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Tuition is provided for small groups or on a one-to-one basis and across a wide range of topics. The courses start from £65 for a 1:1, 3 hour PhotoTrail.

- Chester Racecourse, known as the Roodee, is according to official records the oldest racecourse still in use in England located on the banks of the River Dee. The site was once a harbour during the Roman settlement of the city during the Dark Ages but was closed as the river silted up thus making navigation impossible. Towards the centre of the infield is a raised mound which is decorated by a small cross known as a “rood”. It is from this that the race course derives the name “Roodee”; Roodee is a corruption of “Rood Eye”, meaning “The Island of the Cross”.
