Long Exposure Photography Workshop, Crosby, West Kirby & Perch Rock


Sunday 23rd Feb 2020 ONLY 4 PLACES LEFT

Come and join me as we spend the day shooting some wonderful long exposure images. I have chosen four fantastic locations at the statues at Crosby Beach, Marine Lake at West Kirby and and the sea defences and Perch Rock Lighthouse at New Brighton. All four locations present amazing opportunities to capture some stunning long exposure images, both in colour and black and white.

We will start the day at Crosby Beach to capture Antony Gormley’s iconic and hugely popular life size statues on the beach as well as the photogenic outflow pipe. We will arrive on location at 8am, three hours before high tide (high tide is 9m at 11.09am) to allow you to visualise and set up some great compositions. The tide comes in quickly due to the flat beach.

At 9.30am, we will then leave for the Marine Lake at West Kirby (30 minute drive through the tunnel. Small toll fee charged). We will spend an hour photographing the lake right up to high tide before making our way to the sea defences at New Brighton. 

A further hour at the sea defences will allow us to capture the colourful green moss covered concrete defences before moving onto the iconic and recognisable Perch Rock Lighthouse. We will have almost two hours to capture the lighthouse from a variety of angles as the tide recedes. 

There will be ample opportunities to use my range of Kase filters including their 3, 6 stop, 10 and 16 stop filters should you want to try to capture some long exposure images. Tuition on the use of filters is included.

All in all, there is something for everyone on this very popular one day workshop. Places are limited to six and free return transport in my car (Volvo XC60) is available from Preston if required (max three seats available).
