Join me and a small group of like-minded photographers on a photographic journey together in the beautiful and calming surroundings of Watergate Bay on the northern coast of Cornwall.
It is a well proven fact that creating and producing art can be of huge benefit to our all round mental well being, helping the photographer to express feelings that may be difficult to express verbally, whilst developing a personal photographic voice and visualising the world from a completely new perspective.
Taking time, slowing down and focussing intensely on a subject through a lens is a way of the photographer to observe and take in the beauty all around, a real distraction from anxieties, worries and outside pressures.
If you would like to come on the course and dont have a digital camera? Thats fine! I am able to hire you a camera and lens so that you are able to enjoy the sessions fully! Just let me know when n=booking and I can book you a body and lens for the trip.
Connecting with your surroundings to gain not only a simpler outlook to the world and appreciating the time we have to take time creating positive emotions and beautiful art at the same time!
As a small group we will take walks together, talk life and discuss photography in a completely different and supportive way, taking time to reconnect and really “see” our beautiful surroundings.
We will have two practical sessions each day one in the morning and one at sunset with a break during the day for you to either take time to yourself or book a 1-1 session for some more intense tuition if you wish.
Each session we will take a walk along the incredible coastline of Cornwall, spend time on the beaches, and generally watch the world go by whilst capturing it frame to frame.
At the end of each day weather permitting we will capture the amazing sunset and retire to discuss our images from the day, with encouraging critiques and tips of how to develop and nurture our personal photographic styles.
At the end of the trip you will leave with a greater sense of creativity and achievement and each of you will receive a fine art print of one of your favourite images as a memento of your trip with me.
Price for the whole weekend is £325 for two days of tuition
If you would like to add on a 1-1 session with me please add another £45 per hour.
1-1 Sessions can be booked 12-5 pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday by request.
The price is for tuition only it is your responsibility to book accommodation and meals, I will certainly recommend where you might like to eat and stay, and there are some incredible places in the area dependant on your budget.
Where to stay
I will be properly getting back to the peace and quiet of nature and you are more than welcome to join me staying at The View in Watergate Bay a beautiful campsite that I would really recommend!
If this is not quite for you there are many beautiful places to stay in Watergate, Mawgan Porth and Newquay all of which are just a short drive from where we will meet everyday. Please do contact me if you would like further help.
