A wonderful opportunity to explore the North Norfolk Coast in springtime. This workshop is based at the Manor Hotel in Blakeney which is one of my favourite locations on the Norfolk Coast and one that I have been visiting for many years. The North Norfolk Coast is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a diverse mix of tidal salt marsh, creeks, sand dunes and characterful villages and harbours. It is renowned for its wildlife and is a fantastic place to explore photographically at any time of the year.
During the weekend we will be exploring the following locations:
Blakeney with its characterful waterfront and riverbank is perfect for an early sunrise or a sunset all within a stones throw of the hotel.
Morston Quay, just down the road from Blakeney, is a bustling place full of small boats and wooden jetties. It sits on the edge of one of the largest expanses of salt marsh in Europe.
Cley – famous for its windmill which sits in a sea of reeds this is another nearby location perfect for some creative photography.
Sheringham park, famous for its vast collection of rhododendrons and azaleas this park overlooks the North Sea and is at its best in the spring.
Thornham Old Harbour is a popular photographic location and it’s easy to see why. With its collection of small boats, old wooden jetties and stone barn all located within a short distance from the sea.
Old Hunstanton with its colourful stripy cliffs, interesting geology and old boat wreck this is a great place to explore at low tide.
The photography side of the workshop will be accompanied by some time with the computer looking at post processing using Lightroom and Photoshop. We will cover workflow and how to get the best from your images as well as looking at some more advanced techniques including panoramas, bracketing and focus stacking. I am keen to promote a relaxed and informal atmosphere on my workshops and there will be plenty of time for group discussion and image review.
The format of each day will vary depending on the weather and locations but we aim to take in a sunrise or early morning shoot followed by breakfast in the hotel. We will then spend the day shooting and will return for dinner before heading out again for a sunset.
We will meet at the hotel at 2pm on Friday 27th and the workshop will finish at midday on Sunday 29th.
This workshop is suitable for all, no matter what level you are at photographically or what camera you use. The aim is to get to know a beautiful location with a group of like minded individuals. The workshop is limited to a maximum of 6 participants with two tutors allowing plenty of individual attention for all. We will cover a range of photographic techniques and will be taking in some diverse locations giving a stimulating few days whatever your ability.
