With its stunning scenery and rugged coastline, Cornwall offers amazing opportunities for landscape photography. With a fantastic range of photogenic locations, you will be exploring all the best spots this county has to offer. This Cornwall photography workshop is being run by two professional award-winning landscape photographers Melvin Nicholson and Tony Higginson. Both have explored and photographed this area on numerous occasions and will be guiding you to a varied range of locations.

Whether you are new to landscape photography, or are a seasoned practitioner, Melvin and Tony will be able to offer advice and guidance to take your work to a higher level. Not only will you leave this workshop with amazing memories (and photos to match), but you will also gain new skills and knowledge which you will make you a better photographer. With so much coastline, we will be spending a lot of the time photographing the sea so the use of filters will form a large part of this workshop. Perhaps you want to create long-exposure minimalist photographs using a ten stop filter, or perhaps using faster shutter speeds to capture the energy of the waves, your workshop leaders will be on hand to assist and advise you all the way. The first day begins at 11.00 on Friday the 22nd of March and we will be visiting the surreal landscape of Bedruthan Steps, followed by Godrevy lighthouse which is a great location for sunset.

The following two days will see us visiting Porth Nanven, famous for its dinosaur egg beach, St Michael’s Mount with its long cobbled causeway, Mousehole with it’s classical Cornish harbour, Cape Cornwall which has a photogenic tidal pool which is great for long exposures, Botallack Mines which sit on the coast and allow for great compositions, Lizard Point the most southerly point in the UK and Kynance Cove which is a superb place to capture the motion of the waves as they run up the sandy beach and against the coastal rocky cliffs. Finishing the workshop at sunset on Sunday the 24th March, it will be three busy days of awe-inspiring seascapes! This workshop is being limited to only seven people, and with two workshop leaders on hand, you will have plenty of time for one to one instruction where you can work on technique and composition. So, if spending three days immersed in an amazing coastal landscape with like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere sounds like your kind of break, this is a workshop you will not want to miss out on!
