BRITAIN magazine recently joined Derek and a group of other photography enthusiasts on his HF Holidays ‘Discovering Digital Photography’ course in North Wales’ Snowdonia National Park, so we can recommend first hand just what a great experience this is. Not only do you get to explore the country’s beautiful landscapes, you get daily tuition from Derek, the chance to present your work (slightly nerve wracking actually), transport, accommodation and all meals.

Regular BRITAIN readers will know that Derek has been a contributor to the magazine for many years but his career in photography dates back to 1959 with the purcase of an Agfa Silette camera. Seventeen years later he got his first SLR camera and in 1979 turned professional. Today he has more than 100,000 images of the British Isles and has written many books including Around Britain with a Camera and Landscape, Searching for Infinity
