Cornwall's rugged north coastline workshop

Dusk and dawn on the Cornish coastline, featuring fishing ports, lighthouses and rugged beaches.

3rd-4th Apr 2019

£245 (£50 deposit)

Fully booked

The coastline of North Cornwall is packed with photography locations, from sandy beaches to rugged, windswept views. There are quaint fishing ports and a lighthouse, all within a small stretch.

Example itinerary

Day one
The workshop will commence at 2:00pm with a visit to the fishing villages of Port Isaac and neighbouring Port Quin. After an early dinner stop we'll head to Boscastle for sunset. Day one will conclude at around 8:00pm.

Day two
Beginning before dawn at 6:00am, we'll walk to the Rumps, a promontory which has great coastal views to the north. We'll stop for breakfast at a nearby cafe and then progress to Trevose Head lighthouse. The workshop will conclude around midday.

Where to stay and what to expect

Tuition and transport between locations are included in the workshop price but accommodation and meals aren't. I'd suggest choosing accommodation in the Wadebridge area so that you don't have to travel far between workshop days.

My small group workshops have a relaxed atmosphere which encourages creativity and exploration. With just three people per group we can visit locations where space might be limited. The best light is often found around sunrise and sunset, so we'll be out early and stay out late to make the most of this. It will be mentally demanding but fun so you can expect to feel tired but stimulated and inspired by the end!

Fitness requirements

There will be some walking involved so please consider that at some locations you may need to walk for 30-40 minutes along undulating coastal paths.
