After 11 successful years as a partnership we have now decided to become a limited company, with John and Gail Gravett as Directors. The sub companies under Lakeland Photo Ltd are Lakeland Photographic Holidays, Lakeland Photo Supplies, Lakeland Photo International and johngravett.com.
From February 2011 we will be revising our workshops to 6 nights commencing on a Sunday afternoon and finishing after breakfast on Saturday.
This change will primarily affect the Landscape and Nature workshops where guests will arrive on Sunday, if possible by 3.30pm for a cuppa at 4pm. This will be followed by the Camera Surgery and then dinner and the introduction after dinner. The rest of the week, ie excursions on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 5 nightly feedback sessions will continue as before. The price for the 6 night workshops will be £625 including the 20% VAT due to be introduced from the 1st Jan 2011.
The full workshop listing for 2011 includes:
- 6 night Digital Landscape Photography Workshops – 4 night option also available
- 6 night Digital Photography Nature Workshops

We also have an agreement to work closely with the World of Beatrix Potter based in Windermere, where guests will be able to photograph the new Beatrix Potter garden and walled garden.
We have joined with KE Travel, based in Keswick to increase our international workshops. John will be taking 3 groups of photographers to Marrakesh on 3 long weekends, end of January, June and end of November.
