Hollesley Marshes – Part of the landscape workshop – 2nd May 2021 9am – midday
Adventures in seeing and connecting with the landscape. The aim of the course is to improve your photography skills whilst developing an understanding and connection with the landscape. You will be encouraged to move away from the pre planned classic view and focus more on observation and forging a connection with the landscape around you.
This 3 hour workshop ties in with the publication of my ‘Grounded’ photography project which explores my connection with Hollesley Marshes in 2020. This part of the Suffolk coastline is a flat landscape not traditionally thought of as stunning in photographic terms. It has no striking views, instead it is gentle and understated but none the less inspiring. This workshop aims to help you look for images in a landscape that could be considered unremarkable. You will be encouraged to move away from the pre planned classic view and focus more on observation and forging a connection with the natural world.
This workshop is part of a new workshop / self study course which looks at a more immersive form of landscape photography. Alongside the 3 hour group session each participant will receive a free workbook which can be used afterwards to continue exploring the Suffolk landscape. The workbook features a series of exercises designed to promote a more thoughtful approach to landscape photography and looks at how we can use this to engage more fully with the natural world.
Part of the landscape workshops are all slightly different and explore some of Suffolks most varied habitats many of which are often overlooked photographically. You are welcome to sign up to more than one session as each is designed to explore a different habitat.
