LAST MINUTE LANDSCAPES

A new addition to the regular workshops are ongoing short notice landscape workshops (usually 24/48 hours).

Capturing landscape images with subject interest, great light and that wow factor involves a degree of planning. Finding locations, choosing weather conditions, choosing the best time of day, checking sunrise/sunset times, moon positions and tide times are all factors essential for being in the right place at the right time. I constantly monitor all of the above factors for my own work in order to increase my chances of getting the best images. Based on these factors there a optimum times for shooting all locations. The workshops will be anything from one to three hours in duration and will be priced accordingly. All locations will be local to the Worthing/Littlehampton area. Notification of the workshops will be emailed when available.
