During this workshop we will be based on the north east coast of England surrounded by some of the country’s most imposing castles, including Bamburgh Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle, Lindisfarne Castle, Alnwick Castle and Warkworth Castle. Most photography will be carried out along Northumberland’s impressive coastline. We will explore Lindisfarne and photograph an extraordinary stone circle by torchlight. We will venture into Newcastle and Gateshead for dusk shots of the riverside and Millenium Bridge. We will also photograph St. Mary’s Lighthouse and The Angel of the North. Weather permitting we'll also head inland to Hadrian’s Wall. There will be eider ducks in the harbour at Seahouses that we can photograph with a moderate telephoto lens. Each day we will start before sunrise and finish photographing after sunset so expect to be out and about from about 6am until 6pm. At this time of the year we should have empty beaches and hopefully changeable weather with impressive clouds and dramatic light. Image critique sessions and Photoshop demonstrations will be carried out in the evenings or during any periods of very poor weather.
We will have six and a half days of photography beginning on Saturday morning and finishing at midday on Friday. Participants will travel in my 4X4 vehicle during the workshop. Wherever practical I will collect people en-route from my base in Dorset.
