Improve your photographic skills with Professional Landscape Photographer Melvin Nicholson

All levels catered for, from the absolute beginner to the serious hobbyist and experienced photographer 

Relaxed group workshops or personalised One-to-One tuition

Hi there and welcome to my website.

I am an established full time, professional landscape photographer based in the UK. I offer one-day workshops and multi-day courses and tours in various locations throughout the UK. I also offer international workshops, tours, and courses in Iceland, with the following exciting tours in the Dolomites, Lofoten and New Zealand soon to be announced for 2019.

I select some of the most photogenic and dramatic landscape locations for my workshops, including the Lake District, Northumberland, and the Scottish Highlands and Islands, among many others.

My work has been commended in several major competitions, and displayed in exhibitions nationwide. My acclaimed image ‘Fogbow’, has been published in a variety of magazines including National Geographic and featured on several news and media channels worldwide.

With many years experience as a professional photographer and running both group workshops and personalised One-to-One tuition I am well qualified to help you improve your photographic skills, whatever your current level.

Workshop Testimonials

“This was my first workshop with Melvin. From the outset it was clear we were going to have a fun day. Melvin has a very jovial and lighthearted style to his tuition which makes you feel relaxed and at ease. He is also a very professional and talented photographer with a wealth of information and tips to share. I learnt a great deal on the day which has allowed me to improve my skills and take better pictures. I would highly recommend a workshop with Melvin and hope to go on some more myself in the future.”

Steve Lacey– 1-2-1 Tuition Day, Lake District, February 2018

Mel showed himself to be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about photography and was willing to take whatever time was necessary to help you with compositions and settings and was always offering to provide you with his suggestions. Mel was adaptable to any skill level and made everyone feel comfortable and at ease with his demeanour and sense of humour.
