This workshop will have two distinct halves: the first looking at trees and landscape views, the second looking at coastal photography.

Our first location will be on the Quantock Hills. Here we'll visit an old drover's road lined with gnarled and windswept trees. The trees themselves make great subjects and just beyond them are far-reaching views over the West Somerset countryside.

Later in the day we'll head to Lilstock Beach which features wave cut limestone formations that cover large areas and are criss-crossed with cracks, creating interesting shapes.

The workshop will begin at 1:30pm when we head to Triscombe. After that we'll move to Lilstock Beach and remain there as the tide recedes and the sun sets. We'll finish at 8:00pm. Wellies and a tripod will be a must for this workshop.

The workshop will be easy going but note that it involves a walk on an uneven pebbled beach.

During the workshop we will cover a range of topics from basic camera settings, filtration and focusing to 'seeing' a picture and improving composition. It doesn't matter what level you're at as there is enough time to give everyone individual attention. You will receive a brief questionnaire before the workshop to allow me to tailor the content towards what you wish to learn.

After the workshop I will send you notes recapping what we've covered.
