The Kirklees Light Railway’s Photography Days offer attendees an opportunity to use their digital cameras in a more creative way whilst photographing different areas of the railway.

Attendees will have access to areas including trackside, the stations, the engine shed, lineside, the coaling and workshop areas.

Courses are led by professional photographer, Dave Edmondson L.R.P.S, who will offer advice and guidance for taking good quality images in different settings.

Dave will offer tips and guidance if participants require it. Each course is limited to five participants only to allow enough time and guidance to be given to everyone.

Courses begin at 9am and run until the locomotives are put into the shed at the end of the operating day (5pm/5.30pm).

Courses cost £60 per person (one day only) and places must be booked at least 24 hours in advance of the course date.

The dates of the courses are seasonal to allow a choice of backdrop settings for your images:

  • Winter - Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th February 2018
  • Spring - Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th April 2018
  • Summer - Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th July 2018
