Without any doubt, the Dorset Coast has some of the most Iconic landscapes in the UK. From the ancient beaches of Durdle Door, to the stunning coast around Portland Bill lighthouse, it is impossible not to be inspired by the beauty of this area of outstanding natural beauty. During this three day workshop, we will be visiting all the best classic locations that the Jurrasic coast has to offer, and with two experienced professional landscape photographers Melvin Nicholson and Tony Higginson, and a maximum of seven clients, you will have ample opportunity to improve your landscape photography on a one to one basis.

Melvin and Tony compliment each other very nicely as workshop leaders because they each have individual styles. Whether you want to capture wide-angle long exposure photographs of the stunning vistas or create more intimate images looking at themes of texture, pattern and colour, you will have the time to explore these ideas and produce fresh new original photographs while learning to see the landscape in a fresh way. We have timed this Dorset photography workshop towards the end of March to give us a good chance to get mist surrounding Corfe Castle at sunrise. Other places we will be visiting include Man O’War Bay with its wonderfully crescent-shaped beach, Lulworth Cove which offers some excellent wide angle or panoramic views, Kimmeridge bay which is great for capturing the wonderful colours of sunset, Old Harry Rocks with its chalk sea stacks, Swanage old pier where you will perhaps use long exposures to create minimalist photographs, and of course Durdle door and Portland Bill. Starting at 11.00 on Tuesday 26th of March, and then finishing after sunset on Thursday 28th March, this photography workshop will help to take your work to a new level while having a great time with like-minded people in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. If that sounds like your kind of workshop, it would be great to have you join us.
