One of my favourite locations for photography, and one of the most varied; the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset presents us with some fabulous possibilities for landscape photography with some truly iconic locations. Join me for a 2-day photography workshop on this beautiful stretch of the Dorset coast.
The great rock arch of Durdle Door is one of Dorset’s most famous landmarks and along with neighbouring Man O’ War Bay provides for sweeping views of the coastline. The white chalk cliffs at Old Harry Rocks catch the sun beautifully and the fascinating fossil and rock formations at Kimmeridge Bay offer great potential when its incredible rock ledges are exposed at low tide.
The beachfront and wonderful old Victorian pier at Swanage provide for the chance to work on long exposures and capturing movement and we’ll have a selection of Kase filters on hand for you to try including grads and ND’s so don’t worry if you don’t have any. Nearby, the impressive ruins of nearby Corfe Castle are unmissable and often subject to misty mornings at this time of year. We might even be lucky enough to see a passing steam train to add further romance to the scene!
The opportunities for photography are endless on this stretch of stunning coastline, but on this workshop we will also take you inland to explore a little of the delightful Dorset countryside and share with you the odd lesser-known gem.
We research all the locations thoroughly, so as well as receiving expert tuition from your two tutors, you can be sure that you will be in the right locations at the best time of day to make the most of them.
