Evening Photography Workshop with Liza Dracup

Thur 2 Feb, 6.30 – 9pm, £25 (Members £18.75)

Liza Dracup: Sharpe's Wood

Deutsche Börse Photography Prize-nominated artist Liza Dracup will deliver an informal talk about her landscape photography practice before leading an experimental, practical session investigating approaches to working with landscape, location and evening light.


The workshop is suitable for beginners or more confident and experienced photographers. It is a great chance to learn some top tips on how to make the most of your camera and to exploit different light sources to your advantage.

Taking the form of a photography trail, participants will start at The Hepworth Wakefield, considering the act of looking and manipulating light as the fundamentals of night photography, before being guided on a short walk around the surrounding area. The evening will end back at The Hepworth Wakefield, warming up with a tea or coffee, sharing your images with others and chance for a quick Q&A with Liza Dracup.


Liza Dracup is a photographer based in the North of England. The work she makes is in response to the landscape of Britain. She is best known for her series of large-scale colour landscape photographs made between dusk and dawn. She produces work that broadens her photography in both a creative and academic context, as she is both an artist and lecturer. Her work has been nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012 and the Prix Pictet (Earth) Photography Award 2009. She is currently creating work around the theme of The British Landscape - A Photographic Re-Analysis of The Beautiful and The Sublime.
