Southwold and Walberswick Workshop
Photography Tuition


Southwold and Walberswick Group Workshop

Saturday 8th February 9am – 4pm

Join me for a days photography tuition exploring the beautiful coastal locations of Southwold and Walberswick.

The workshop will start at Southwold and take in the pier, beach with its colourful beach huts, gun hill and the lighthouse. After a break for lunch in a local pub we will head to Walberswick where we will have the opportunity to photograph the River Blyth and the beach and old pier hopefully finishing with a sunset (weather permitting).

During the workshop we will explore the art of making a photograph and will cover technical aspects (shooting mode, choice of aperture, focusing, exposure) as well as composition (identifying a subject, finding a viewpoint, working with supporting elements and using lines, shapes, patterns and textures  to create depth and interest).

We will look at composition in the wider landscape and also in more detailed scenes.

There will also be the opportunity to try long exposure photography for those wishing to master this creative technique.

This 7 hour workshop costs £110 and includes a one course lunch and transport between locations if required.

Join me for a days photography tuition exploring the beautiful coastal locations of Southwold and Walberswick.


My Southwold and Walberswick workshop starts in the coastal town of Southwold where we will explore the pier and the seafront with its colourful beach huts and marram grass covered dunes. We will cover camera settings and learn how to get off automatic mode. We will look at composition and the various rules that can be used when putting an image together and will look at the wider landscape as well as all the little details that make Southwold such a varied location for photography. After a break for lunch we will head around the estuary to photograph the beautiful village of Walberswick with its views across the river Blyth, its black fishing huts and its fantastic beach. there will be opportunities to practice long exposure photography and hopefully catch a sunset – weather permitting.
