Railway Photography Courses


Why not book a steam railway photography course with our leading railways photographer, Mark Writtle?

Mark has been a professional for over 20 years when he set up Writtle Photographic and a keen amateur for many years prior to that. He now photographs and designs some of the best steam railway memorabilia around the UK and supplies most of the major heritage railways in England.

2019 dates are;
Spring Courses – Tuesday 23rd April, Wednesday 24th April & Thursday 25th April.
Summer Courses – Tuesday 18th June, Wednesday 19th June & Thursday 20th June.
Autumn Courses – Tuesday 29th October, Wednesday 30th October & Thursday 31st October.

2020 dates are;

Summer Courses – Tuesday 16th June, Wednesday 17th June, Thursday 18th June.
Autumn Courses – Tuesday 27th October, Wednesday 28th October, Thursday 29th October.

In between this busy schedule, Mark has taken a handful of days per year to offer a limited number of keen amateur photographers the chance to spend a day with him at his favourite local railway – the Severn Valley. Mark will show you some of the best locations and techniques to enhance your photography, and give you a memorable day photographing some of the country’s finest steam locomotives and carriage sets.

This is a fine gift for someone who is a keen steam railways enthusiast and amateur photographer.

Courses start at £125.00 per person per day and are bookable through this online shop.
Please advise your preferred dates as this could change at short notice if weather is adverse.

Further details regarding the days schedule will be issued once booking is confirmed.

Here is a testimonial from one of our recent photography course customers;
“Just a quick email to say many thanks for yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and learnt a lot about composition and also both my cameras. Had a quick squint at the photos and they look really good, (which may be a first for me !!) I won’t hesitate to recommend you if some of my “steam train” friends want a similar course.”
