Tidal Travel Log – Photography Strolls
Discover Suffolk's coastal landscape and villages in the 'Golden Hour' of photography
These afternoon and early evening outdoor photography workshops are aimed at beginners and intermediates, no matter what make or model their camera is. This includes mobile phones or tablets with camera, and compact cameras.
Our event timings include the 'Golden Hour' of photography with the best lighting in the afternoon. This will hopefully (depending on the weather) give participants the opportunity to get some stunning photos of the landscape, the afternoon sky and the setting sun before we finish with last shots in the 'Blue Hour' after sunset. Wherever possible we aim to include the moon rise as well.
The group will be guided by professional landscape photographer Jeremy Hennell James and Monika Koch, who specialises in natural and built heritage and the culture of the Suffolk coast. This unique skill combination of the two leaders will help workshop participants to open their eyes and lenses to find often overlooked but fascinating features of the changing coastline.
We will start with a short introduction over a mug of tea or coffee while explaining some basics of manual camera settings and providing a glimpse in the history of the location. (You are most welcome to bring your own picnic too.) Jeremy will make sure you are comfortable with your camera settings before we head off to be inspired by fantastic open skies, quaint little villages, and the wild and wonderful coastal landscape with its fascinating marine heritage. Everyone will be supported with many training and practice opportunities on our relaxed stroll along the tide line, while taking in the coastal scenery, the wildlife and the history of the location.
We will stay outdoors for the full four hours and explore a section of the coastline by foot, in all weather and cameras always at hand. You'll need to have a reasonable level of fitness, and the route may include walking on shingle, mud, uneven or wet ground. Some locations are wheelchair or mobility scooter friendly and we may be able to tailor our route accordingly if you enquire about it before you book. The actual route will be decided on the day, responding to participants' skill levels and interests.
Price: £38 per person. Booking in advance is essential. The fee includes hot drinks, photography guidance and tuition. Places are limited to ten participants per workshop and we need a minimum of seven participants to go ahead.
