Sea and Shore Photography Workshop

The 'Sea and Shore' photography workshop looks at coastal photography and the techniques we can use to produce effective compositions, from long-exposures to sand patterns, crashing waves to rusty groynes.

The Naze at Walton, Essex, is a stunning backdrop to the beaches with a wide variety of features to allow a range of images to be made, and this workshop runs from late afternoon to dusk, hopefully including a colourful sunset. It is preceded by a two hour online session with a slideshow and discussion, which is available to book seperately.

Workshop Checklist
  • Maximum of 5 participants.

  • Online and practical outdoor sessions.

  • Group and individual tuition.

  • Shoot from afternoon through to darkness.

  • Explore a range of techniques and subjects.

  • Just £60 per person.

This is a more specialised workshop concentrating on coastal photography, from wider seascapes to details of beaches. You'll need to be happy with your ability to control your camera, either because you've attended my 'Know The Basics' workshop, or because you've already learnt the basics yourself. A tripod will be hugely beneficial for this sort of photography, especially as we'll be shooting into late evening.

We have a slideshow and discussion in advance via Zoom, looking at techniques and subjects available for sea and shore photography, from composition, lighting, subject matter, long exposures and more.

There are two of these sessions available, on Thursday 24th September at 7.30pm, and Wednesday 7th October at 7.30pm. They last around 2 hours, and are available to anyone, whether they are taking part in the practical session or not. Details of how to book are below.

For those attending the practical session too, we will head down to the beach to put these techniques into practice, with everyone getting some one-to-one time whilst we're there. We will have nearly 4 hours shooting time, running from afternoon, through sunset, to dusk.
