Dungeness lies along England’s south-east coast with its beach being one of the world’s largest expanses of shingle. Dungeness beach has a strange aura about it that really sets it apart from other UK destinations. I would say a uniqueness comprising of a wild, vast landscape with big skies.
The workshop will concentrate on the fishing boats, in particular those that are old and decaying that are to be found on the shingle banks, which, along with the fishing huts, make for wonderful subjects for photography. As we walk among the boats we will seek out texture in the wooden hulls, details among the discarded fishing nets and silhouettes against a sunset sky.
It will be held in late afternoon so that you benefit from the warm, low-angled sun. As with all my workshops, timing is of the essence and if you want to participate in one that doesn’t interfere with supper, then this is not for you! But, if you want to shoot during those times that pro’s work in and soak up the atmosphere of an evening spent at this photogenic location, then this is for you!
Numbers will be limited to a maximum of just 6 and is suitable for absolute beginners with a point-and-shoot as well as the more advanced photographer with an SLR. With such a small group size I can easily move between you, advising and answering any questions you may have on a one-to-one basis. You also have the freedom to position yourself where you like and not worry too much about other photographers being in your way.
