£150.00

Sunday 9th Dec 2018

Sold Out

One of the advantages of being born and bred in Blackpool is that I know the coastline around the Fylde Coast of Lancashire very well indeed and there are several gems to photograph.

This workshop will take place over three fantastic locations, the iconic 150 year old Central Pier in Blackpool, the wonderfully recognisable 18 foot high beach art installation Mary’s Shell at Cleveleys and the hugely photogenic fishing boat wrecks at Fleetwood.

The day will start at 9am with a 90 minute session at the iconic Mary’s Shell which nestles on the sandy beach at Cleveleys, not thirty feet out from the steps that lead you down to the beach itself. We will be shooting the shell as the tide comes in allowing us to create some wonderful long exposure images. I have a full set of Nisi filters on hand should anyone want to use them. There is quite a high tide present during this workshop which will allow us enough time to visit our next location which will be the 150 year old Central Pier in Blackpool.

We will spend just an hour here capturing the underside of the great pier from an elevated concrete platform which allows a safe place to photograph from. Late morning we head to Fleetwood to photograph the boats (we will be standing in water so bring your wellies unless you would rather shoot from the dry elevated bank side), a spot of lunch will follow (bring a pack lunch) and to finish the day off, we will work in close up and detail shots of the wrecks themselves to capture some interesting abstract images. All in all, there’s something for everyone on this very popular long exposure workshop. Places are strictly limited to five for this workshop and free return transport is available from Preston if required.
