With just a few miles of countryside separating them, Glastonbury and Wells feature many photographic subjects. Wells boasts the glorious architecture of its Cathedral and Vicars' Close, which is said to be Europe's oldest residential street.
Glastonbury is world-famous and needs little introduction. Glastonbury Tor is photogenic all year round but only during a handful of times in the year is it possible to photograph the moon rising behind it.
The workshop will begin in the city of Wells where we'll photograph Vicars' Close, Wells Cathedral and the moat of the Bishop's Palace. The streets of the city are equally photogenic with many interesting features.
From Wells we will drive to Glastonbury for some landscape photography. We'll stop at a viewpoint on the outskirts of the town to photograph the Tor from the moors. As we reach the end of the afternoon we'll head to our final location where we'll photograph the moon rising behind Glastonbury Tor (cloud permitting).
The workshop will start at 3:00pm in Glastonbury. I will drive the group to the locations for the day. The workshop will conclude at 8:30pm. If it is too cloudy to photograph the moon I will restructure the workshop to instead include light painting at the top of Glastonbury Tor. This will push the end time back slightly.
Tuition and guidance, transport between locations on the day, workshop notes.
