Northumberland Photography Workshops

Join our small group of like-minded photographers on our Wild Light Northumberland Photography Workshop, based at Doxford Hall Hotel on 11th-13th May 2018


*****Please note this workshop is fully booked for May 2018*****

Our three day Wild Light Photography Workshop in Northumberland takes place from 11th-13th May 2018.  This workshop will visit iconic locations at Bamburgh, Holy Island, Dunstanburgh, the Cheviot Hills, Alnwick, Craster, Belford and many more in the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  May is a perfect time for the workshop, the daylight hours are longer, the weather is often settled and the unique and the diverse flora and fauna in this region will be at it’s best and most active.  For coastal photography, the beaches of the Northumberland coast are some of the finest in the UK.  The foreground interest of Northumberland’s beaches ranges from rounded boulders near Dunstanburgh, dune systems near Bamburgh and rocky oucrops of The Great Whin Sill ensure our carefully selected locations are all particularly good for long exposure coastal photography.

The towns and villages in this area are quietly remote and very photogenic.  Moving inland, we have options to visit locations based around Hadrian’s Wall and the Cheviot Hills.  Northumberland is a landscape photographer’s paradise and no visit would be complete without an excursion to Lindisfarne, or Holy Island, with it’s iconic boat sheds, lobster pots and dramatic castle.  Seabird and marine wildlife are prolific and as this workshop is timed to coincide with the peak of the breeding season when the seabirds are at their most active and feeding their young, you may wish to extend your visit before or after the workshop to include a boat trip from Seahouses out to the Farne Islands.  You will see many breeding species including puffin, kittiwake, guillemot, razorbill, shag and gannet, seals etc., all at close quarters.

Northumberland has so much to offer with endless photographic opportunities.  I’m excited to return to Northumberland and looking forward to leading this workshop in May 2018.  The cost includes two nights accommodation, made to order breakfasts on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th and evening dinners on 11th and 12th May.  Transport to locations on the workshop and photography tuition by myself are included and the full coat is £395.  For returning guests who have previously attended my Wild Light Photography Workshops, the cost is discounted to £350.
