This full-day photography course features three locations on the Kent coast. We meet at St. Margaret’s Bay on the south coast, we then move on to Samphire Hoe, before finishing the course at Reculver Towers. Each location offers a different photographic challenge for each student. Regardless of whether you are a beginner, new to photography or a more experienced photographer, my photography workshops will increase your camera skills, understanding of composition and use of available light. Because my location courses are limited to a maximum of five participants there is plenty of time to give each student all the individual attention they need to develop their technical and artistic skills.
St. Margaret’s Bay offers a fantastic landscape of towering white cliffs and reflective rock pools. I time our shoot for low tide so you can make the most of your photography here and come away with some great images. Once you have made your way to the meeting point I will then take care of transport between locations, dropping you back off to your car at the end of the day.
Samphire Hoe also features Kent’s famous white cliffs. However you also get a completely different perspective of this country park which was created from the spoil taken from the Channel tunnel.
Reculver Towers is a complete contrast to the previous two places already visited. The ruined abbey is a very atmospheric building when it comes to landscape photography. It’s a great subject to observe how the interplay of light and shade can bring out the best in your images.
My one-day digital photography workshops include tuition on mastering the use of your camera, creative use of shutter speeds and aperture, white balance, exposure histogram, photographic filters, exposure modes , fill flash, composition and the use of light and colour, along with more expert techniques for the more experienced photographer.
Although this course takes place in the beautiful Kent countryside all the skills learnt are of course transferable to other subjects such as photographing people, sports or wildlife.
All my photography training courses have a flexible format which means I can adapt my teaching style to each individual. I think it’s really important for each photography session to have a relaxed, fun feel to it because I believe we all learn more that way. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like during and after the workshop.
After the course you will receive a full set of notes with details of all the subjects discussed during the day’s photography program. This means you can enjoy your photography without the hassle of writing notes all day.
No specialist equipment is needed for this course. Your regular camera will be fine. A tripod is useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one because I have a number of tripods that I’m happy to lend to students for the day.
