NORTHUMBERLAND’S CASTLES AND COAST

£625.00 / £100.00 Deposit / Sharing Discount - £50.00

Based in the picturesque village of Bamburgh, just a few minute’s walk from the monumental castle and beautiful sandy beach, this two-day, two-night workshop will take in the best locations the North Northumberland coast has to offer, including (time and weather-permitting) Dunstanburgh Castle and Embleton Bay, Craster, Beadnell, Bamburgh Castle and Beach, Alnmouth and the Aln Estuary, Rumbling Kern and Howick Bathing House, Cullernose point, Warkworth Castle, Spittal Beach and the fascinating island of Lindisfarne (Holy Island) - so even if you’re an experienced photographer or workshop veteran, there will be plenty to keep you occupied!

The workshop commences at 6.30pm on March 10th when you'll meet Lee and the group for a pre-dinner drink in the bar of the Victoria Hotel, Bamburgh. After a three-course dinner in the hotel's cosy brasserie, Lee will the then present some of his images of the locations you'll be covering during the workshop. The photography will begin before dawn on the 11th and 12th of March, with visits to Bamburgh beach and Embleton Bay, and end after sunset on both days. The days are short in March so sunrise and sunset occur at sensible times of day! That said, the light and weather can be brilliant and as the sun never climbs very high in the sky at this time of year, the light quality is high all day, so we can shoot from dawn to dusk.

As well as taking you to fantastic locations, Lee will also be on hand at all times to offers help and advice on everything from lens choice and composition to filters, mastering depth-of-field, exposure, shooting in Raw, shooting for black & white conversion, infrared and anything else you need to know about the art and craft of coastal landscape photography. Lee knows the Northumberland coast intimarely, having lived there for a number of years, shooting the images for a coffee table book on Northumbria, and leading many workshops in the area - his very first photography workshop was on the Northumberland Coast back in 1998!

If you need to stay on an extra night or two at the hotel after the workshop ends of March 12th, this can be arranged at extra cost on request.
