Workshop Leader: Chris Frost

This Dorset Photography Tour is a 3-day, 2-night weekend residential workshop based in Poole and tutored by UK Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) winner, Chris Frost.

Dorset offers a veritable feast of photographic opportunity. From the rugged yet beautiful Jurassic Coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching from Old Harry Rocks to the quintessentially English seaside resort of Lyme Regis on the Dorset/Devon border, to the iconic Corfe Castle as it rises above swirling mists and further inland to the tranquillity of its magical woodlands.

The tour will allow participants to experience a variety of locations. As well as the icons of Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, Portland Bill & Kimmeridge, we will look to get off the beaten track and visit lesser-known locations such as Mupe Bay and some of Dorset’s hidden woodlands. This variety will provide participants ample opportunities to develop their technical, compositional and artistic skills, and is suited to all levels from beginner through to the more experienced photographer.

We will depart and return to our base in Poole, keeping a flexible approach to each day’s itinerary, choosing locations that capitalise on the most favourable weather and tidal conditions – November is a fantastic time to be a landscape photographer in Dorset. Autumn brings with it an increased possibility of mornings blanketed in mist, changing foliage colours and storm driven waves ravaging the coastline. Sunrise and sunset positions will also have moved south and are perfectly aligned for the majority of locations on the predominantly south-facing Jurassic coast.

Being a long-time resident of Dorset, Chris brings a wealth of local area knowledge and will work hard to ensure you are in the best possible locations to capture dramatic and atmospheric images of this stunning County. 

Some coastal locations will require a moderate walk over hilly and uneven terrain so good fitness levels will be required.
