The Somerset Coast
£795.00 | 10th - 12th March, 2024 | Fully BookedJoin the Waiting List
The Somerset coast between Porlock Weir and Clevedon boasts a range of subjects including rugged cliffs, charming villages, grade I listed piers and and historic lighthouses, all of which we'll visit on our very first Somerset Coast workshop.
Porlock offers us the chance to shoot a quintessentially charming English seaside village, with its picturesque harbour, quaint cottages, and boats. The weathered groynes and posts will provide plenty of opportunities for fans of long exposure photography and endless scope for minimalist compositions. We'll be sure to visit at high tide, when the nearby fields flood, creating some unique photographic opportuntiies.
On this workshop, we will also photograph the classic wooden lighthouse at Burnham-on-Sea, the new pier and old tidal pool at Weston-Super-Mare, the stunning geology of Kilve beach - almost a cross between Kimmeridge Bay and the Glamorgan Heritage Coast - and Clevedon, featuring not only its beautiful and historic Victorian pier, but also Marine Lake, a tidal pool which is not only popular with swimmers (don't worry, Mark will leave his budgie smugglers at home!) but is also an excellent location for long exposure minimalist compoisitions.
Our accommodation is the Northfield Hotel in Minehead, perfectly situated for easy access to our main viewpoints, and with a reputation for great service and excellent food. Included in the cost of the workshop are two nights dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation in single-occupancy rooms and packed lunches on days 2 and 3. Group size is strictly limited to 8 people to maximise plenty of individual attention.
Your tutors for this workshop are Jeremy Walker and Mark Bauer. Jeremy grew up in Somerset and has an intimate knowledge the area, and he and Mark will make sure that you are always in the right place at the right time to capture the beauty, mood and drama of the Somerset coastline. We hope you can join us...
