Grizedale Forest


The Alchemist’s Workshop at Grizedale is a black and white photography treasure trove. Adorned with prints, of various sizes, analogue (film) photographs, the old school cameras used to capture the images and a range of specialist photography books and magazines, the gallery is an interesting and relaxing place to browse whatever your interest in photography. There is also a darkroom which is available for use for members of the public or for those attending one of his courses and there are lovingly restored Olympus Trip cameras (which he refers to as his ‘restyled beauties') for sale or hire. Perhaps the best feature of the whole workshop is Steven himself. Extremely knowledgeable, Steven also enjoys what he does and enjoys sharing that enthusiasm with others, whatever their knowledge/expertise of photography.
