Another fantastic year of Landscape and Wildlife Photography taken at the beautiful English Heritage site Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens. Mentored by photographer Katie Lee, fifteen Year 9 and Year 10 students from Heaton Manor School and Longbenton Community College were given the challenge to produce a series of images inspired by the stunning settings in Northumberland. Here’s how they did…

The landscape and wildlife photographers are Gemma Cole, Aron Domingos, Jamie Mercer-Glentworth, Charlene Stableford, Shannon McGuigan, Ben Lee, Anya Braviner, Rosie Barton, Joe Frisken, Hollie Sayer-Smith, Charlie Dishman, Sophie Pickering, Amy Knox, Harriet Sims and Jake Campbell.

All the students had 3 days to produce stunning images which would be showcased at the Final Show. Their first day was set at Northumbria University to prepare and research ready for their shoot. They were asked  to shoot a triptyche using all the techniques they had learnt about composition and what makes a good photograph. Their second day they were on location at the beautiful Belsay Hall, castle and gardens where they had the day searching, discovering and capturing the landscape. The final day the students spent editing photographs in preparation for print and their showcase using image software Adode Photoshop.
