Feeling Burnt Out | A Hard Week of Photography




I have just returned from a hard week of landscape photography in the Lake District. I feel tired and burnt out. In this episode I share with you some images and stories from my 6 day photography workshop in the Lake District.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the workshop Thomas, and it looks like it was good value for all your participants. Bummer about Simon's misadventure. Most of us have stories like that, mine was the tragic and sudden meeting of my 70-200 IS with the pavement…..what's left of the lens now sits on my bookshelf as a reminder to remain mindful.

  2. I think this is one of your best videos ever. The images were incredible, simple but hard won and really spoke to my adventurous side. I bivvied up Moel Siabod (Snowdonia) back in Jan hoping to take an incredible panorama like the one in the video. Woke up at 0730 in a cloud with 0 m visibility 🙁 My quest continues and your videos keep inspiring me.

  3. +Thomas . a quick question. Not related to.this video. Created a squarespace website, using your code. Thank you for that, but very disappointed to.know that right clicks cant be disabled and when viewing from mobile, touch and hold , puctures can be downloaded. Leant this after spending almost an entire day after creating the website . Was able to disable right click through code injection but the mobile downlo doesnt make sense 😢

  4. Because I am unable to travel (due to finances and lack of my own vehicle) when I do landscape photography, it is often the "intimate landscape". After all, how else am I able to get different shots of the same location? 🙂 Because of my limitation, I wanted to tell you that my favorite image of the images you showed in this video was the last one of the leaves frozen in the ice. I'd love to take a shot like that. Sadly, our winter seems to be non-existent at the moment so everything is tired and brown and washed out. I'm hoping for some freezing temperatures before spring arrives, but we shall see. You did have me worried by the title of this video and the thumbnail of you looking depressed. I'm glad it was a happy video. 🙂

  5. Looks like it was an amazing workshop, and I do hope that there are more coming. Bummer to hear about Simon's camera, but that can be fixed or replaced. Your lead-in to that story led me to expect the thud to be a person, not "just" a camera. Glad it was the former.
    Absolutely wonderful "through the ice" image. Your comment about not being drawn-in too much with the sweeping landscapes is so true. Looking at the intimate so often seems to net amazing images. As someone once told me, "if in doubt, take a step forward". So true.

  6. come on Thomas lets not say tired, you're doing this as a full-time occupation, slightly negative I should say. I've been following you for a long while, I'm 60 I've got a full time job, it's hard to get to some places I need to be, so early or so late. great video but no negativity please. Thanks for inspiring me I'm having a great time.

  7. Wow Thomas! your last images blow me out from my computer chair. That was an image one should have in print size of 1m x 1m, on a wall in ones living room or over a double bed in bedroom.

  8. That last shot was beautiful. The story behind an image can be as memorable as the photograph itself. Out in the snow yesterday, lying on the floor as I tried to "snap" a photo of my border collie. Pleased with the result and getting wet was worth it.

  9. Hi Tom, You say that workshop member Bob is a really really nice guy. The fact that you decided to forfeit the hike and stay with him shows that you are equally so. And you so deserved to find that leaves under the ice composition with which you made a beautiful artistic image.

  10. I'm having a hard time getting motivated to go out in the -20 C or colder weather that we have here. I know the pictures are out there and I know I will enjoy it. It's just revving myself up to get out there in the cold and doing it.
